Confirmed on March 30, 2015, DANLlNDEN HAS BEEN BANNED. His name can no longer be found in the Search window in Second Life. It is unknown what, if anything, will become of Bug Island and any other regions owned by Dan Linden after this ban. And there is no word on whether this ban is related to Linden Lab’s implementation of the new two dimensional side scrolling mode. The photo below was taken in Dan’s personal region, Bug Island, on March 29.
