    Why log out?

    Just means more typing when you return.

    Cookie controls the "remembered login" so the only time to log out is if the site is acting up or you're on a public computer...such as at a Library!

    What's the advantage of logging out? :confused: As ST correctly said [unusual for him to be correct! ;)] it just means you have to log back in when you come back on. Just close your browser window for TSG and the next time you come back in your automatically logged on.

    I will say that from time to time it is good to clear your cookies, but of course you should be clearling all temporary files and cookies from time to time.

    Hmm, I never log out yet I still have to login every few days.

    Seems kind of pointless to log off.
