question re on/off-line feature

Just noticed at bottom lefthand section of a poster's post box (hugely descriptive, I know ), the on or off-line status. Accidently left my cursor on the thing (avatar?) for long enough ...

Neat feature.

Some are bullet holes & some are red crosshairs. Doesn't seem to have any pattern regards # of posts, moderator or not ....

What's the skinny?

Crosshairs are online, bullet holes are offline. Same as the New Post, No New Post icons on the main page.

I don't approve of political jokes, I've seen too many of them get elected.

Its especially handy if you want to send another member a private message. You can do it while they're online and have a near-real-time conversation.

I agree, AA. Neat feature.

Just wait until you put together a buddy list! The crosshaired folks rise to the top and the bullethole folks sink to the bottom of the list.
