For myself, I find it isn't anyone's business if I am online in the forums or not. I would like to see the 'tribe' list showing who is on, or the last time they were on, gone. Or for those who don't mind having that information out there, have the option. Maybe something similar to what is on Facebook, where you can change your settings in your profile so that when you sign in people can't see that you have. That way those who want to be seen can be and those who don't want to, have the choice.
