A: On Squiggle, the user identity is unique per installation and not per user name. So if you ever launched Squiggle from two different locations on your machine OR you used two different versions of Squiggle client then your contacts
will see the most recent instance as online and others as offline. To get rid of older instance, they have to either signout and signin again or deselect the 'show offline contacts' option.
