Why has Linden Lab chosen to insult its existing Second Life user base?

Why has Linden Lab chosen to insult its existing Second Life user base both by setting Project Sansar as a separate new product and allowing access to the developing future project by those few it deems worthy?

LL has an asset that none of the other upcoming Virtual Reality worlds has and that is an established user base of existing virtual world users. But LL has chosen to ignore that advantage and go off and develop just another limited new VR world like all the others that are coming out.

I for one with my ten years’ experience in Second Life would have been pleased to be involved in helping to develop an updated SL. In effect I would have had “skin in the game“ so I would be loyal to a future LL project. Now like many of the other long term SL users I will ignore Sansar when it come out and I have no loyalty to Linden Lab’s future project.
