Why do people appear offline?

I see certain members and the green ball next to their name (im assuming it means they are online) is always the purpley, greyish whatever, meaning that theyre offline, right? But they are clearly online because they are posting and everything, the members I have seen it on so far are

Mr. Crazy

I'm just curious as to why these certains members (for the moment, there may be more) are always appearing offline but clearly aren't, is there a problem with the server or something?

Use Invisible Mode
Invisible mode allows you to browse the forums without appearing in the 'Currently Active Users' lists.
