That is why it's an option not a requirement.

Some of us like the anonymity of being online without our presence being made known to everyone.

I understand, but some of us don't.

Well, we all have to make do with things we don't like.

I don't mind people being able to see if I'm on, and it's nice sometimes to know when others are on and you can get into a discussion.

I can understand why people may not want to though and think there should be an option to turn that function off for individuals, also I don't think guests should be able to see who is on.

There is an easy way to counter that if you don't want to show up on it. Don't sign in. Sign in when you want to post, sign out when you want to lurk. I don't bother with that, because I don't care. But for those who do, that's how you defeat that,

Seems like a pretty good way to do it.

I mean, there should be an option on who is online and who doesn't want to be shown online. There should be a privacy setting to make it anonymous. But, all I was saying is that I think it would be a good idea to just see who is online. It was just a suggestion.

I always like to feel like I'm not alone.
