Do you bother logging out?

Having joined too many sites to count, I sometimes just click on the exit button to close the window. I get lazy at times, so i don't bother logging out. Is this ideal? Is this unsafe? do you do this too?

If I was on Internet Cafe or using my campus' internet, I always hit the sign out button :). But if I am using my private computer + private internet, I am just too lazy to hit that sign out button :p. Even I don't log out from my Email Account.. :p. Well, it is safe enough as long as there are no people using your computer and there are no malware that stealing your cookies.. However if you are using public computer or public network/public internet, don't forget to hit that sign out button! :)

Well if you are using private computer and the user is just you then it is not a problem. I never log out from my sites too so when i open the sites it's already logged in so i think not logging out is more effective way. But, if you are using shared computer then there is possibilities of unsafe because when you not logged out then the person using the computer after you will directly logging in your account when they access the same sites. So if you are using shared computer, logging out is a must doing before closing the window.
