Well today I have noticed that most of my contacts are appearing offline when they are online and I am doing the same for them when I am online. I checked twitter post's for MSN and this is happening to LOTS of people. MSN status is ONLINE but you are OFFLINE for your friends. Anyone no what the deal is as it is very annoying.

Btw didnt no where to put this :L

Same for me, and at least 100 of my contacts.

Also, MSN either delivering  offline messages 3 or more times, or doesnt deliver messages at all.

It has been broken all day, and it's really starting to get my goat.

Yep, my significant other was appearing offline and when I questioned her about it she was completely oblivious to the fact.

Definitely an issue.

It seems OK for me (using Adium, not the official client).
