Alta Vista is no help here

Is there a term for a person who always shows up as online in a given forum (your IM friends list, an online game, etc.) but who's never actually there - someone who just stays logged into a forum all the time, even when they're away from their computer?

I'm guessing it would be the opposite of a troll (someone who lurks until given an opportunity to appear and be nasty to someone), but what's that?

You're not going to go all Human Stain on me, are you?

No! Not at all. Heh. No, really, it hadn't even occurred to me.
