    it's just easier. people seem to get offended if you don't spend every moment of your time on line speaking to them.

    I don't bother hiding on the net. Sometimes I'll hide at the shopping mall if I am just not really in the mood to talk.

    I do that too, or I pretend to be fully absorbed by the ingredients listed on canned asparagus when I'm at the supermarket.

    Don't we have a size limit on signatures?

    Because I am a stalker.

    Seriously, though, I have open "on-line" status over at PersN, and JTG sometimes uses it to watch what I'm doing, which doesn't bother me at all. He'll be like "right now you're doing this and this" and it's kind of funny.

    On the other hand, I'm on here so much and there's so many people here that I don't...I really don't know why I'm on private actually...but I am and I have no inclination to turn it back to public, despite my enormous post count. LOL.

    Usually the longer I'm on a site, and the more people I talk to, the more and more I increase privacy to be limited to friends, or to nobody.

    I find hiding your status kind of annoying. The paranoid Inferior Fe in me thinks it's because they're hiding from me.
    Also, when you see 'offline' people posting, it defeats the purpose anyway.

    When I post, then obviously people know I've been online. But sometimes I'm online and don't post, or sometimes I post on certain threads and just read others, or sometimes I post on a thread and read subsequent responses later without replying right away. So no, it doesn't defeat the purpose. The purpose isn't to pretend I'm never online. The purpose is to be able to read stuff here without people seeing that I'm reading and not replying. This may well be my own brand of paranoia here, but I often imagine them seeing that I'm reading something and wondering why I'm not responding.

    I just like the freedom of coming and going whenever and where ever I choose without people watching me.
