Well, "offline" means that the person is disconnected (not logged in with it's
client). "Online" is state like available, free for chat, awai, etc. For example
I have in my contact list three people Adam, Joseph and Eve. Adam authorized
me, Joseph and Eve did not. Adam is online and chatting, Joseph too, but Eve
is disconnected from the ICQ server. If I use miranda or sim I see in my contact

Adam   - online
Joseph - online
Eve    - offline

If I use gaim I see:

Adam   - online
Joseph - offline  <--
Eve    - offline

So every contact in my list that did not authorized me is shown offline.
