Are we rude to ignore a person's timezone

  1. Jul 12, 2015 #1
    good morning all. it would be nice if the local time stamp for a person was included after the name when we are in chat.
    Then i could know whether to say good morning or something else.

    I think that ignoring a person's circadian rhythm is just rude.

    Why is it rude? Can you provide an example of a scenario in which the lack of appreciation for different time zones has caused problems? I'm struggling to understand.

    i guess i was bored on a sunday morning and was thinking about random things like this. 'rude' is an exaggeration and perhaps something that stuck in my head from jar jar binks. I thought that knowing the 'when' of someone i was chatting with would be helpful.

    You can always ask :) It's a good topic of conversation.

    Why did you say "good morning" at 4:36 PM (for me)? :p

    Go to

    My PF at the top of any page, select "My Preferences", then select your time zone.
