When you start engineering social spaces, as the creators of Second Life are doing with their 'teen spaces', you start selecting for 'appropriate' philosophies. Global Kids (GK) is an adult presence in the teen space - the adults, of course, are screened with background checks. "GK seems likely to be spawned by the same people who create ESRBs (the rating board that attacks games with little detailed descriptions), MPAAs (the movie rating organization prone to giving ratings for speaking up about issues) and probably RIAAs (the music industry association known for blocking free speech and creativity) too."
