So I say hide my status but at the bottom of each page there is this

Who is online

So what is the point of checking "hide my status"?

You looked? Okay- thanks again. Not that I really care but it just seemed odd that I could say hide my status but there it was.

I had the same question, but I was afraid to expose my presence here by asking about it. I see that my name appears in italics, though, so thanks to you my unease has been put to rest.

Good question. When I looked just now, there was just one name in italics, and zero guests.
