Do you want to hide the fact you are typing from others, or you don't want to see that others are typing? – kmarsh Feb 24 '10 at 13:00

If you don't want others to know you are typing, you should uncheck the "Notify buddies that you are typing to them" in the "Conversation" tab in the "Preferences" window.
