Summary: Privacy: block IMs from anyone not on buddy list

Initial Comment:
In Yahoo messenger, I am able to ignore all messages
from people not on my buddy list. This is really
useful, as I sometimes get messages from arbitrary
people claiming to be in my area, wanting to be
"friends", who usually end up being perverts of some
kind. I still get messages informing me of their
requests to be added to my buddy list, but they can't
actually chat to me before I approve them.

It would be really useful if GAIM included a feature
like this, because really, I'm not interested in
chatting to people I don't know.

:) Thanks

When I remove a buddy from the buddy list and in the Privacy
settings set the option to allow only users in the buddy
list, the incoming messages are ignored, but my presence is
still shown to the removed buddy. It would be nice if the
presence notifications are not sent to people not on the
buddy list (if in fact the notifications are being sent from
the Gaim client). If Yahoo is sending the notifications from
the server side, then it would be nice to support their
'stealth' feature, where I can selectively not show my
presence to some buddies.

Thanks - Anil.
