Sometimes when I use the 'Who's Online' function

  1. Jun 25, 2009 #1
    and I run into another user whose 'current activity' is 'Viewing Who's Online' I feel like I am a peeping Tom looking into an apartment building with binoculars and I just locked eyes with another peeping Tom doing the exact same thing.

    Who knew that PF could make you feel so dirty :blushing:

    That's why I feel weird about viewing someone's profile; the "Recent Visitors" list is like leaving your wallet at the window of someone's home you've looked into.

    LOL! That's when you quickly return back the index page and hope you saw them before they saw you! :biggrin:

    Some members might feel similarly as you did about your "Men in Black" visitors if they ever noticed all their "recent visitors" were mentors.

    I don't mind people knowing that I've visited their home page (and I visit a lot of them!). But it is odd seeing "Viewing Who's Online" when I'm viewing who's online...and I can't quite figure out why.

    Maybe it should say "Also Viewing Who's Online...Just Like You Are" :wink:
