Second Life..."Copy Cats!"

I just wanted to take a minute to address the whole supposedly "Wow" factor behind Second Life. We had to create a Second Life avatar for my Paperless class and I totally understand the idea behind setting it up, for the same reason we have our other social networking stay in touch with all available resources out there. However, I think that this site took away some of the immediate enjoyment. One, I think it's a "SIMS" low-budget knock off, and when you first pick your avatar you cannot even customize it. Mine faintly resembles me, but that's only because he's bald, black, and has facial hair. I feel more impressed by my "Yahoo" avatar. And it makes my computer run slow...
