So I've been chatting with some peeps on here, and some just log off without saying later or anything. I understand if like you have to go because you weren't supposed to be on here. (i.e. Work, supposed to be studying, ect.) But some sign off for the night and then the next day apologize for just getting off...
Why do people just log off without saying later?

if I'm rushing I will say bye quick them sign off otherwise ill let people know. I think people should say something even if its quick :)1
I usually do that too, but its not like I do it on purpose. Sometimes I forget I was talking to someone...2
because this is an answer and question website not a chatting website...meebo is just an addiional feature but most users don't care about it, were must more interested in the questions and getting some of ours answered too. I do this all the time I log in and log off or press X on the window and boom I'm signed off, then ill come back an hr later and I'm interested in new questions to answer. I don't even have the meebo bar thing on the bottom shown I click hide.
honestly...u shouldn't take it too seriously were all just strangers on the web here to give and receive advice on QUESTIONS, not real life friends to chat with.0

Yeah, but so what? People have their reasons, it's not worth getting hurt or offended over.
I used to hate it when people did it to me too, but one day I was just like, f*** it, I don't care. If they don't say anything to me in a certain amount of time, I'm going to continue with my day or night as if nothing happened, instead of sitting there feeling sorry for myself because he or she didn't respond.
Now I find myself not saying 'g2g' or 'brb' when I'm just overwhelmed on my own computer because I keep getting a bunch of IM's from people wanting my attention, but I can't talk to them ALL at once, then I get irritated when people IM me later saying "Mehhh, why didn't you respond to me?" because it makes me feel like they want to be the center of my attention, they aren't even considering the fact that it's not a personal thing at all, and they need to quit worrying about it, because I do it to anyone I talk to, not JUST them. True, I'm more likely to let my best friends, the ones that I've known for years, know when I get off the computer, but I'm less likely to prioritize a stranger over my family or friends.
But like I said, it used to bother me too, but I got the hell over it. I just felt like I was being a big baby about it, I feel embarrassed when I look back at how I used to complain to people for not saying 'brb' because I know it wasn't a personal thing, and that I have NO place to say sh*t about it until I've walked a mile in their shoes. It's just the internet, don't fret over it.1

So many reasons, don't take it personally, there isn't much of a need to be polite on the net these days.1
