The Question Club
I noticed today that a lot of people put up an away messages on their messangers, even if they're not away.
In AIM, when you go idle for a specific number of minutes, your name becomes a light grey as opposed to black.
I also have a lot of people that are chronically "away", but aren't idle.
So, my question is if you're at your computer, why would you want to constantly put up an away message? (And I don't mean for 5 minutes when you're busy elsewhere, I'm talking people that consistatnly have an away message up, all the time)
Isn't it easier not to turn the messanger on or not have it at all?
