When I see the names of the people on line (xx members xx visitors) I always see my name in darker blue; but I also always see PaulK in darker blue, too.
This in no way has a negative effect but does anyone know what this means?

Me Too With Rahvin
I see my own name and Rahvin's in dark blue.
I have noticed it before and wondered what it means but never thought to ask.
A ghost in the machine, perhaps?
It might explain the otherwise inexplicable phenomenon of Rahvin frequently telepathically knowing what I want to say and then saying it better than me

I don't know if I'm stalking PaulK or if he's stalking me!

It just means you've clicked that link (ie., you've been to PaulK's and your own message lists) - click on someone else's and you'll see it become dark blue too.
