    I just stay logged in all the time. Is that all right?

    Yes it is. I do the same, never log out, if I don't need to.

    When do I need to log out?
    Answer: When I am at a public computer, and there is a risque that someone else want to see what I'm doing, perhaps making moves in my name, destroying my games. Or worse, writing fake postings in my name.

    After using a public computer for any purpose you should always make a habit of deleting the browser history, the browser cache, the cookies, and any stored passwords. This avoids awkward things like people finding out your passwords and getting up to mischief with e.g. your bank account. As far as this site is concerned, deleting cookies has the same effect as logging out.
