Maybe it is the most important 'problem' with alting. It can be really annoying for sims and story-lines to have an alt come in, assume a role in an RP setting (sim, story, M/s or D/s relationship etc.) and then become mostly absent. Of course, people should play what they want to play as, and maybe you sometimes just feel like playing alt X instead of Y. But if you make something of an RP commitment by assuming a pivotal role in a sim, an RP, someone's SL, it can be less than nice if you then stop playing that account, putting everything on hold while you go do something else that is fun. RL must come first and all. Healthy attitude. SL RP 'obligations' are relative. But if you assume some role and then decide you'd rather log onto your black bull ghetto rapist character for quick pixel sex instead, after just having been made Ubar of Ubaristan and having collared 5 slaves, companioned 1 FW and declared war on 3 neighboring cities, you may be acting a bit selfishly. Just a little.
So much THIS.
