in reply to /away CB command?

Naturally, once you log on again, your status is *not* away

Unless of course god decides that there should be an option on users' home pages to allow users to automatically be logged on as "away" in the chatterbox. That way people like me (who rarely use the chatterbox) wouldn't have to specify that we're not going to be using the chatterbox today. We can just specify those days we will use it by setting /away off :-)

Good suggestion,

    i agree with jynx, but i'd like to take it a step farther. it would be nice if somehow people could mark themselves as "non-chatters" and have msgs to them give you a warning to that effect.

      /msg Dominus Hey Yark! i'll be in your town tomorrow. want to get together and let me buy you lunch?

      [_] root says you tried to say "Hey Yark! i'll be in your town tomorrow. want to get together and let me buy you lunch?" to Dominus, but Dominus doesn't chat. You may wish to try other methods.

    update: BigJoe suggests that /ignore all and /chatterbox off do what i want, but i've seen nothing indicating that these will warn an errant sender that the target doesn't use the CB. if they do, then i withdraw the request.

      Isn't that what "/ignore all" & "/chatteroff" is for?

    Automate it by showing not only who's logged on, but how long it's been since they submitted any data.
