It sounds like there's been a misunderstanding, then. I've been
referring to the icon in the chat window, not the buddy list. I keep
the buddy list closed. I don't think it really matters so much in the
buddy list window, to be honest.

Nevertheless, I'm done arguing about this. We've all made our points,
and we just disagree, and there's nothing that can be done about that.
