    Question Which is more correct?

    A. It seems to me that when we all had MoDems it was:
    LogOn / LogOff

    B. Now on the 'net it seems to be more:
    LogIn / LogOut

    Which is more correct? A or B?


    Maybe I will begin using LogOn / LogOut or LogIn / LogOff.

    They're both equivalent. There's no difference.

    I think we need:

    Over and In to accompany
    Over and Out.

    Unfortunately, your initial premise is incorrect!
