Summary: better privacy support in general

Initial Comment:
Just a client-side (server-side if possible, AIM has
warning sytem, but at least Yahoo and ICQ don't AFAIK)
ignore. Something that allows you to blacklist all
those spammers and annoying fsckwits.

(I put this into bug tracker as many trackers seem to
track feature requests. There doesn't seem to be a
level dialog, tough.)

It also for me a very good idea...
because my icq account is very old ( 5 years ) and I have
regularly some spam bots which send some messages....
I can block then for a session but it's not enought....
Black list can be very helpfull....

Yes, I fully agree that privacy is a major problem with GAIM. I have a
similar problem to the one above with IRC. (A few IRC bots send me ads
every 10 seconds or so)

Please Please Please Please, include the option to permanetly blacklist by
nick and hostname for the IRC module!

A little different but :
It would be great if you could block an entire group at once...
For example: I'm working and need coworkers to be able to IM
me, but block all those chatty friends!
