When I leave the forum, should it automatically log me out?  It doesn't.  I've ben away for the weekend and had could not have logged out at the last visit as when I switched on today, there I was.   Does it matter if I am perpetually logged in??

Dunno, Mel.  I'm permanently logged in, unless I get logged out when I clear my cookies/cache/whatever the expression is, or my computer has had enough and mysteriously shuts itself down (which it does, infuriatingly, from time to time ).  Saves logging in each time, I suppose!

Thanks Sue.  We'll remain blissful in our ignorance.
