Is "who's online" inappropriate?

Im not so sure that last one's a good idea. ;)

I *do* like it. It's a neat outside the box idea. Unfortunately, it
predicates on the assumption that you can define RP by defining what
is NOT RP, which is obviously a much larger volume of data. It also
rewards non-RPers for RP simply because they aren't social. There
are a whole slew of flaws in this, I think.
