Who would need to know the whereabouts of a member when they're online? Bit big brotherish ain't it? And to further illustrate the absurdity- its not even accurate LOL I'm in this thread and its still saying I'm in an old thread which I closed out of ages ago.
Does anyone else find this a valuable feature? Perhaps you could enlighten me as to why one would use it, because apart from stalking someone, I don't see any reason. Seriously.
I got one reason from someone on another forum once who said they liked it because they could see if a person was online and they could then expect a reply from them to their thread. This person would then lie in wait and calculated how long it should take for that person to respond based on their whereabouts. If too much time went by, they would PM their poor stalkee. Yep! There are people like that out there
Invisibility mode should be available to everyone, not just BN Plus members. I have nothing to hide, but it just seems a tad creepy to broadcast where a person is on the site. The online feature should be notification enough for anyone. I don't think its necessary to detail someones footsteps.
