There are people who haven't updated their mood for weeks but still have got the indicator turned on. This makes their one/two line replies to grow a lot for no reason, so would you please make the mood indicator to autohide if it hasn't been updated, say, for 5 days?

Funny thing about that. I am at work waiting for the s@$#% to hit the fan. No need to update the mood.

Hmm, well, maybe those normal moods can be saved, but if the user is, say, proud, it could be hided.
Or more likely there could be a pop-up saying:
"You haven't updated your mood for # days! It's set to be: [state, description]. Want to change/hide/keep?"

The popup suggestion is a good one. Kudos to you for thinking that one up.
