The new msn 7 has some features called "winks". This is

just add the feature, and make a on off switch for it in prefs

takes care of the whole controversy, i personally like gaim because it can
do everything other clients can and still run optimal

A plugin means that you can enable or disable it. gaims msn
plugin is an msn plugin. MS MSN client adds features that
means that all the 3rd party clients should get themselve
compatible.
It'd like to have a wink plugin, because i have enough
telling people that my msn client doesnt support winks.

oh, and this response sounded a lot different then the
"implement X, cause msn7 has it" in the original post. of
course its good to be as compatible as possible, but gaim
should not have features that would fall under the 'lame' or
'bloat' category. it supports plugins just for that purpose.
you can always write a winks plugin yourself?

and no, i dont think people should use msn7 either, but that
winks is just a perfect example of a feature that's only
implemented for those BrEeZaH's who spend half of their day
on msn and want something to fill up the time when it takes
half a minute to get a response from the people they are
talking to. it serves no purpose other then being annoying
and has nothing to do with chatting whatsoever. same story
with that nudge crap. i think MS has gone a totally wrong
way with their IM app.

of course a full-screen animation should not be implemented,
i dont think there's anyone that would doubt that.
i did not know that msn7 bugs you about this though, i
havent had any contacts that tried to send me winks yet. if
it bugs gaim users about this, i think gaim should have a
filter to ignore those messages, maybe even send a message
back, telling the msn7 user to bug off with his winks (in a
friendly manner of course ;))

This is not a matter of being a lame feature or not. It's a thing 
that there's now on msn. For keeping full compatibility with it, 
we must have anything. Your "Change to windows msn7" 
attitude will not help anyone, nor developers or even users 
switching from microsoft to open-source solutions.

I think a simple message "Someone send you a lame thing of 
msn7" is better than that "blah your msn client is too old for 
running this" that appears on msn when someone tries to 
send gaim a wink.

This does not mean a full-screen animation must be 
implemented anyway.

OMG NO!
if gaim would actually implement this, i would be so
disappointed in the development team that i'm gonna install
another IM client.
winks is one of the lamest features that i've ever seen in a
chat client, along with that 'nudge' or whatever they called it.

i think you might be better off with another IM prog (like
the original msn7), if you actally LIKE features like this...

Whatever this is (and I don't think I like the sound of it)
it's a feature request, not a bug.
