This is because there are people out there that once they get connected rather they are listening or not, they never disconnect. This way it allows everyone the opportunity to connect without them using bandwidth that isn't needed by computers sitting with no one listening.
Just my opinion but if you really want to listen uninterrupted the best method is to get a tuner and subscription. The internet access is secondary. Just so you'll know there is a limit as to how many times in a day that you can log in as well. I think it is 10, but I am not sure.
I use it when I am in various offices and I don't have a problem with it asking me if I am still listening. I"d rather than to try and log in and not be able to get connected becaue there are bunch of people out there not listening, but logged in.
