    This is my first trek into ABW wearing the cloak of invisibility.

    Frankly, I can't understand the benefits of being invisible...

    Being a good student, I searched the forum for discussion and found a related topic: "WOW". That's about it.

    Are there any Romulans out here that can explain the peace time benefits of invisibility?

    Doc

    PS... I dressed for the part. You don't want to know. My wife asked me what the H-- I was doing NOW and I replied it doesn't matter because I'm invisible. She left the room muttering something...

    Is that like, ummm, Emperor's New Clothes? Was your "cloak" invisible too?

    Doc,

    I never understood it myself ... but it is an option, for those who care to use it ... Mrs. Farnsworth called it "Value added" [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Always the best,

    Haiko

    The main benefit is if you think people will post differently if they see you're around, IMO.

    Also there are times when a person just doesn't want how much time they spend here to be public knowledge for just anyone who happens to log on. So there's a privacy component. It really isn't the whole world's business how much time someone spends on a board...whether a little or a lot!

    I appreciate the perspective. Very Interesting.

    And Haiko - I didn't know you were in one of Mrs. Farnswoth's classes... We must have passed one another in the hall (...on the way to the principal's office) at some time !!!

    ...Not Invisible Tonight. Everything OK.

    Doc

    Obviously, you don't have a white hair on your head.

    If you did, you could wander in and out of messages and say something. No one would say anything bad to the old man on the message board.

    Unless, of course, you were incontinent.

    Unfortunately, I have quite a few white hairs and I ain't even 33 yet [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    My short-term memory is almost non-existant and when I remember the things I've forgotten, it's usually about 3 months down the road :eek: so I'm constantly :confused: :confused:
