It has a weird quirk. It logs you in cloaked, always, even if the browser was already logged in as a normal user before. So, if you're using to access this site, and then you log in with this Chatterbox client (either you log in, or you can't use it to speak), your continued visit will now happen under a cloak. You can see that marked by a "#" symbol next to your login name in the top navigation section of any normal node page.

The following symptoms will now happen:

  • Your visit will no longer be recorded. You name will disappear from the Other Users list, after a while.
  • If you continue browsing this site for more than a day, you will pass up the chance to gain 2 XP for visiting this site 2 days in a row
  • After a few days, you no longer will receive any new votes. The Vote Fairy will just pass you by.
  • People will start thinking of you as a creep. ;-) Well, you're here, but they can't see you...

All not too desirable, and I'm quite sure Aristotle will find a permanent solution in a short time — checking at startup if a permanent cookie was set, and if so, just leave it, that would be a start. But, for now, the best advice I can give you is: if you wish to keep using this chatterbox client, and don't want your normal visits here to be cloaked, use a different root URL for your normal visit, and for this client. In short: don't visit via Use, for example,
