Because the amount of times when user actually want to log out is smaller compared to the times of accidential clicks.
If you read through the history of this topic you will see that's the case.

I almost always log out intentionally and usually a number of times each day and I see many others doing it, too. The times I logged out accidentally over all the years can be counted using the fingers of one hand. If you actually think that this 'feature' is needed, it should be part of the user settings.

I have never intentionally logged out before. And as for the common user I don't think it is necessary.

The time that you take to relogin (due to pressing the button unintentionally) is greater than the time you lose in simply clicking and confirming a button... If you login and logout every day, I think, that's a personal problem. :)
I really see this necessary; especially when you use the mobile.

IMO, if someone repeatedly presses the logout button unintentionally, that's a personal problem. ;)

It is an issue with the Mobile Design of this site.
Users that log in and out on a daily basis are rather rare - therefore their problems barely matter at all.

Interesting opinion! How did you count it?
Looking at this thread, I don't see that much users are affected by this problem.

I agree.

This is not an option for mobile users. Also looking at this thread you are the only one who now wants to change back where as many people requested this feature before.

Also, as a user of the "other" theme I can say its layout is not responsive so it does not stretch to the available display width like the main theme does, so to some this may be a disadvantage. I guess a dropdown menu just like the one in the "other" theme would be enough.
Oh and I'm one that may log in and out a few times a day - staying logged in for a long time doesn't actually fully work anyway, at logout I'm notified the session <something> doesn't match, the page reloads and I have to log out again. Such glitch happens even when taking a lot of time for commenting or posting a new topic (such as manipulating screenshots, testing scripts etc. before hitting 'Submit'). Too much "security" works agains the user sometimes. Other times it's not enough (hence this topic).
I've deleted my CloudMe account because of GDPR - the now legal base for privacy invasion and data theft.

Re: Logout Button

I was getting confusing behaviour, which I resolved:
Manual click: logout warning.
Click via hotkey: logout, no warning.

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

^#Left::
;SendInput, {Click} ;not working correctly
SendInput, {Ctrl Up}{Click} ;working correctly
return

So it turns out that ctrl+click bypasses the logout warning.
In my script, because the hotkey contains ctrl, I needed the script to release ctrl, otherwise ctrl+click was sent. Cheers.

[EDIT:]
- When I pressed the hotkey it didn't open a new window.
- When I press ctrl+click manually, it opens a new window.
