Haha, upon first reading this I saw "how do you feel about the more specific tramp stamp on your profile?"
Me: "fuck, I thought I took that bitch dowwwwwwwwn!!!"
Seriously though, I didn't notice til now. I'm neutral and it, I guess (even the certainty of my own neutrality is in question, thus reinforcing my apathy, haha).
I'm trying to think of ways that this would bug me, and I can't think of any. I guess it could throw some fuel on the fire if people were stalking me (I'm imagining messages in my inbox saying "I know you got my messages... I know you're there... you're activity says that you are!!! Respond respond respond!!") but I don't have any of those.
I don't bother... I'm more or less on here every day for at least 30 min or so. If people want to use the time stamp to see I'm probably online and message me, no problem. But if I would miss it? Njep, not either. So my opinion towards it is very neutral!
I have nothing aganist it even tho I don't even pay attention/use that feature. I guess it could be useful if you message someone and thay don't reply you could see if they where active after the message was sent.
I think it's a pretty useful thing if you're trying to contact someone. You'll know if there's a possibility that they've seen your message or not, depending on what the time stamp says. It's also a pretty good indicator of how active the user is/might be.
Just like with questions/opinions/comments, you can see a time stamp for GAGers as well. Why do we have it? Well, why not? If everything else has a time stamp, why not give GAGers a time stamp so that people know when they've been on; perhaps for conversational purposes, perhaps for question/opinion purposes, etc. This is more like how it used to be as well.
