Second Life’s search censorship blacklist appears to have gone a bit funny, and is refusing to retain entries containing the substring ‘lol’.

That means no so-called ‘lolita’ fashions (quite big this year in many countries outside the USA) (a style strongly reminiscent of candy-goth and harajuku), no lollipops, no lolling, and so on. Not for search results, anyway.

Actually, if you’re an established fashion-house with a Second Life presence, you’re still screwed, as the increasingly-popular ‘lolita’ fashion genre is permanently blacklisted by the Lab.

As for the ‘lol’ problem? A Lab spokesperson confirmed a few minutes ago that it was a bug, and it will be fixed sometime this week.
