    Send a message, if it bounces back with “xxx is offline”, then they’re offline.

    If it bounces back with “xxx is ignoring you” then you know they are pretending.

    ALL of my friends do that. It is so incredibly annoying.

    That’s what I usually do if I want to chat them. If they don’t answer then it’s none of my business.

    Better than what I do, showing up as active and STILL ignoring chats…

    On gmail, if you are on invisible, it will tell others you are offline so that dosent do anything really

    Exactly! So google chat, watsapp, Facebook it all tells u if the person is online or offline. But yes I hate when it shows that there online already and didn’t answer you back its rude!

    Why exactly is it rude? No one is entitled to answer you as soon as they go online. How about your friend’s got his/her business to take care of first or didn’t have the patience at that moment to answer “lol”, “Hiya m crazy busy at the moment” or wateve….

    Oh and perhaps its someone else using the account at the moment… a snoopy sibling or parent… (errr…)

    oneoutofthree: I actually share an email account, and that has happened to me- my friends have chatted/emailed me when I wasn’t home but my sister was using the email account and then gotten insulted when I didn’t immediately reply.

    Actually, it’s also a good excuse for when I’m on but I don’t want to answer- though I don’t give excuses. If I don’t want to answer why should I?

    Ye no one should take it as a personal offense if they’re not answered right away, there can be a gazillion reasons to take offense and then again not to.

    Which mitzvah is it in the Torah that says I must respond to every text ASAP usually within minutes of receiving it? Why are people so sensitive these days and assume the worst if you don’t answer immediately?

    Gchat is assur. It can lead to talking to the opposite gender on YWN CR.
