A wave of protests broke out today after Linden Lab announced a 66% increase in Openspace pricing starting in January. Although I hope the company will reconsider and grandfather existing sims, the only real leverage we have is the power of the purse.
If you really believe that Linden's action is unethical, are you willing to make a pledge to cancel paid status and abandon your Second Life property if they don't relent? (Linden still gets the tier if you sell it.) Would you leave behind the virtual country of your birth, walk away from your digital assets and emigrate to the technologically inferior wilderness of an OpenSim?
