Why Invisible?

I see a rising influx of peeps using the "Invisible" option.

Why?

Even a non-mod sees that you're online when you're posting!

I was invisible for quite a while, just cus I never really thought about it. Didn't care one way or the other. (but then I would get random PM's, "Why ya invisible?")

I removed the cloak the other day and now I get "I see you!! " PM's....

Honestly I think (at least speaking for myself) most people just don't give it a second thought.

I have been on many forums. And I always see it used. Admins and Mods can always see them so I just figure they are hiding from other users. I disabled it on my site. On smaller sites it tends to make the users paranoid lol.And forum paranoia is annoying LOL!! I don't use VBulletin as I am an IPB gal. On IPB it shows for example:
10 user(s) active in the past 15 minutes
Active Users 2 guests, 7 members, 1 anonymous members

And everyone sees there 1 anonymous user....at least here the users don't see it :P

It hides your username from the users online list so regular members cant see you on. That's it. Makes you appear offline all the time, so you will have red dot on your posts all the time as well.

Some folks might not be comfortable with the Squid/Stunta quotient here on this board....

We all like to think of ourselves as secret ninja's and try to exercise the invisible option whenever and wherever we can.
