Do you hide your online status?


Do you hide your online status on SAS (the visible/invisible option is located in your Profile).

If so, why?

I hide my online status because if I make a post, I sometimes hover over it for a while to see if anyone will reply.

*suddenly everyone becomes invisible*

I don't ever hide my status, the page is almost always open in Opera so I stay logged in just about 24/7.

I used to, but now I don't. I figure someone might need me for something so then they'll know I'm here and able to help them

I hide my online status. I go through periods of being inconspicuous to conspicuous. Don't know why really.

I doubt people pay much attention to the online users list, and don't care if I'm seen being online.

That doesn't mean you're counted as online, unless you refresh the page every 15 minutes.

I never thought about hiding my online status. I feel safe enough here.

What is the most important thing you can be doing right now, and why aren't you doing it?
Training is nothing! Will is everything! The will to act.
Often a 80% plan executed right away is better than a 100% plan executed later.
You think that's air you're breathing now?

Yes........If not I would appear on line 24/7 I usually have SAS opened while surfing, after all, I could miss something if I logged out;-)

Mental illness is what some have, not who they are.

Plus I like feeling sneaky...
