What would it mean if an SWsomeone deactivates during a conversation?

Is that like an online 'door smacked in your face'?

I've had someone block me in the middle of a nice conversation. I was pissed!! That's very disrespectful!!馃槫
Silvermoon46-50, F
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] yep, no reason. I find out later that this person does it just to play with people!!
SW User
[@797643,mrsindyjoe] That is so messed up.
Silvermoon46-50, F
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] yeah, we are humans, not robots for crying out loud.
SW User
I deleted my account mid comment once. It wasn't a conversation though, more like me deciding not to open the day, when I had my hand on the handle.
SW User
[@1190214,TUFKAL] Comments on public posts feel less personal so that's alright.
SW User
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] Private conversations can be a tricky to interpret though. I'm never sure when they've finished.
SW User
[@1190214,TUFKAL] I get what you mean.

Tbh I鈥檝e done it before. Sometimes when I hit a rough patch I just can鈥檛 deal with being on here and have to disappear for a bit. I try to let people know I鈥檓 just taking a break but I don鈥檛 always pull it off.
SW User
[@334441,summersong] When I deactivated for the longest time, I told my active conversations I'll be off for a while. Now I don't, because people are used to me going on and off. Though it was never mid conversation, like I've put out something and before they respond I disappear.
SW User
[@1199225,Puppyprivilege] Maybe they have dysfunction? lol A lot of people don't realise what they're doing can be considered as playing games.
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] and a lot do. 馃檪
SW User
[@1199225,Puppyprivilege] Unfortunately.
ClassifiedM
Probably something else happened what caused them to bed time for themselves.
ClassifiedM
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] Then they can just sink in manure 馃槕
SW User
[@444927,Classified] Hey pssst... you know I'm teasing you right? Not an actual scenario. :)
ClassifiedM
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] Yes, I thought my reply was clear enough that it wasn't serious. 馃構
PhoenixPhailM
Yes. It's like someone turning around and walking away from you while you're in the middle of a sentence.
adorbz22-25, F
ehhh. Not really. If they were only avoiding you then they鈥檇 just block
SW User
[@1027452,adorbz] Good point.
Casheyane26-30, F
Sometimes it can be they have other things they want to focus on at the time. I mean, I don't think it's always bad.

I can't really recall if it happened to me. But sometimes I turn my status off just for the sake of it. Sometimes I still reply after, otherwise I try to say so. Maybe not always though.
SW User
[@594425,Casheyane] Ai see.. deactivation takes at least a couple of minutes though and different from changing status.
Casheyane26-30, F
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] Oh. I guess it's different. In that case I think I've never tried it here.

Have you?
SW User
[@594425,Casheyane] These days, I just go. It's not happened when its mid conversation yet, the kind of conversation where a response is relevant.
Buildingadoor26-30, F
Not at all. It just means they aren't using sw for a while.
SW User
[@1089099,Brickbybrick] True!
Nayla51-55, F
It probably has nothing to do with your conversation.
SW User
[@506684,DawsonsGrove] Yeah!
SpaceJesus41-45, M
That's happened to me. Only it wasn't a deactivation by choice. I was talking to Becksta, and someone in admin zinged me mid-conversation
SpaceJesus41-45, M
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] Hahaha I had been naughty. She saw the whole thing happen, but she recognized me when I came back, so it was all good
SW User
[@717388,GaiusJuliusCaesar] I missed on so much drama!
SpaceJesus41-45, M
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] So do I most of the time hahaha!
TheGoodGuy36-40, M
Maybe ptsd. They run before you do, bcoz they know inevitably that's where it's going to end up.
TheGoodGuy36-40, M
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] Lots of things get said where people's feelings aren't considered, it goes both ways. No it's not okay.
Has someone written you off? Have you written them off?
SW User
[@551840,TheGoodGuy] this isn't a real scenario.
馃檹
TheGoodGuy36-40, M
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] Oh. Okay.
4meAndyouF
Hmm. It could mean a power outage. I had one yesterday afternoon.
4meAndyouF
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] I am sincere, and not in the least offended. 馃
SW User
[@387713,4meAndyou] Good, I'd hate to offend you. 馃

xuxuguinhu931-35, T
again this question? it means they dont want to talk to you anymore. accept it.

ps. im here for you. i can give you all you need
SW User
[@1204467,xuxuguinhu9] What do you mean again? It's the same freakin' qn. Check the dates on the post.

I don't want anything. Thanks.
xuxuguinhu931-35, T
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] why the heck did it come up thenn
SW User
[@1204467,xuxuguinhu9] Use your intelligence...it will come to you.
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] Oh no you don't GET BACK HERE HOE!
SW User
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] Bend at once! Your booty is mine
tk999941-45, M
Might not even be because of you if it happened. Sometimes people on here get a random harassing message or comment out of the blue and it triggers them.
SW User
[@1135204,tk9999] Oh. That's a twist.
tk999941-45, M
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] I鈥檝e seen it happen...recently even.
latinladybug41-45, F
That happened to me when I was new here. I would guess that maybe they ran out of things to say 馃槅.
SW User
[@876949,latinbutterfly] They felt so uncomfortable just fading away that they had to have a grand deactivation?馃槀
Keepitsimple51-55, F
It means you were played. You鈥檙e not dealing with people who have all their crayons in their box.
SW User
[@11509,Keepitsimple] 鈽癸笍 *don't go breaking my heart!
Vetrov56-60, M
Well...l do recall a gift was left for me.
And before I could open it....
She had disappeared.
Again.
*traditional
SW User
[@1309,Vetrov] 馃檲 Ouch, and touche! 馃槀
SweetNSassyF
They probably got in fight with their gf/bf about it and just delete it lol
SW User
[@465377,SweetNSassy] I keep forgetting all those behind the scene domestics.
SweetNSassyF
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] They will probably be back. Lol
QueenOfQuirkF
it means they had drama and you鈥檒l see it on the feed soon
SW User
[@10636,QueenOfQuirk] Yeah, I don't understand why being direct in a private setting isn't cherished on SW.
QueenOfQuirkF
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] I still remember one user texting me 鈥渨hat happens in the DMs stays in the DMs鈥 wtf lmao
Powermax51-55, M
Somebody caught them and they panicked, so tried to hide the evidence.
Or IT issue
SW User
[@1108096,Powermax] IT issue won't go choose the hoops you need to go through to deactivate.
It鈥檚 been known to happen along with some other weird things.
SW User
[@1199225,Puppyprivilege] I suppose its bound to happen, when people get together.
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] yep
What you do ? 馃槮
SW User
[@957625,DrScissorhands] Oh A. The number of people I upset just because I am being...its true. 馃ズ

But you tell me, are you back home?
Oh they don鈥檛 appreciate what we appreciate. You鈥檙e awesome possum 馃槍
I am home and surviving 馃槓[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts]
SW User
[@957625,DrScissorhands] I'm rooting for your deeper survival. 鉂わ笍
83DolphinStarCookies36-40, F
Yeah I have had that happen before lol
SW User
[@892169,Starchild1983] Oops... what did you think of it?
83DolphinStarCookies36-40, F
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] I thought it was pretty rude that I didn鈥檛 even get a goodbye lol
SW User
It鈥檚 more like a door hitting them on the arse as they exit!
SW User
[@417364,Ozymandias] 馃槀 Meanie!
nedkellyM
Just like a robot call centre calling you, terminate the call ASAP
SW User
[@5946,nedkelly] Yes! Very robotic...that's a really good comparison.
BlueVeins22-25
ehhh i'd assume that they just felt overwhelmed or something
SW User
[@4199,BlueVeins] I'd imagine the person slamming the door on my face to be feeling overwhelmed too. 馃槀
pratluck36-40, M
Yes
But I am here
Don't worry please
SW User
[@1019858,pratluck] Oh I don't worry at all. :)
pratluck36-40, M
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] that is spirit
Nanori26-30, F
Maybe they just logged out
SW User
[@934648,Nanori] stalking should first be attempted ..right?馃憖
arkod36-40, M
I've no idea. 馃槧
SW User
[@1146013,arkod] But I like the emoji.
arkod36-40, M
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] Great! 馃槧
SW User
[@1148565,Frequencys] 馃槼馃槼 LOL like how you went for coffee the other day. 馃槀 (Kidding, yaknow that right?)
SignalsM
[@44604,Aidolovemostofyourthoughts] the coffee line was very backed up though!
馃き馃ズ
SW User
[@1019125,SledgeHammer] 馃し鈥嶁檧锔 Yeah I think it's rude.
