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
