I have been on invisible mode for a very long time. I started doing it because there was one person in particular who, although is a very nice person, was stalking certain members (I being one of them). We were all on a chat thread together. We would be on SCS but not in the chat thread. Well, this particular person would go through the trouble of checking to see if we were on & then try to coax us to post on the chat thread. Of course, it made her look like a raving idiot because we were on, but we weren't even looking at the chat thread. There are some people who were on looking at the gallery or maybe a totally different forum and just didn't care anything about chatting at the time.

It just kind of creeped me out, so I went incognito.


Oh! Wait. I meant to say that it's none of your business...that's why I'm invisible!!

I think all of us have felt the sting of being 'ignored' on different threads and you know we might all of us be guilty of that same thing without ever intending to be rude. Just remember how many times you wished you could reach through the computer screen to give someone a hug who's having a hard time and couldn't . . . computers don't always translate things well.

I went invisible for a time when my feelings were really hurt by something and just wanted to lurk . . . but then decided it wasn't worth it to allow someone I don't even know in person to spoil what for me has become my playground and a place to find friends.

I agree, it's amazing that so many of us have had these issues. Goodness, this is the internet~ if someone doesn't agree with what you're saying/thinking move on/turn it off.

This has certainly been an interesting, eye-opening, thread. I am fairly new to chatting on the internet so the whole concept of stalking is new to me.

Ok, I just changed to invisible but when I clicked on my profile from my thread on here it still said what thread I was viewing. Did I do something wrong?

Well, I second that compliment!

And peggysue, I agree with you: I think that it's easier for misunderstandings to arise over e-mail and chat threads, because you can't always hear the warmth (or snark) in someone's tone, and that makes it easy for hard feelings to arise sometimes when someone uses a wrong turn of phrase. While this mostly gets straightened out inside of a minute face-to-face, it can easily escalate in cyberspace.

My experience has been that most of the time, even in the ethernet, things can be sorted out if not to a completely peaceful degree, then at least to a workable degree. Though I think in both real and online life, there will always be folks who become extremely defensive or offended should an issue arise, and have a harder time working to resolve an issue rather than fuming over the perceived offense. Online or IRL, it's hard to work things out with folks who can't believe anything they've done or said created a problem in any way, and insist there's something wrong with you if you don't see things their way.

Though I dont know if you are "on" reading this or not the answer to your question is that you can always see what you are doing, it's others that cant

Nope, you're invisible. I checked your profile and it doesn't show your last activity.

But other than that girls, be proud!
I remember that! While I didn't necessarily agree with you, and I confess I was a little annoyed myself, I didn't think that folks needed to be so nasty to you!

Okay, lunch is over and my boss does care about surfing the web outside of that one hour a day, so I'll see you all later!

Well, add me to the list of people who weren't even aware that there was such a thing. I assume that I am visible. I still don't know where I would go if I wanted to be in invisible mode.
