Thanks, i didnt mean to be rude previously but its just not feasible for 
me to hand edit and decide where each group should belong so they are all 
alphabetical, specially because they will become out of order within a 
week or two.

Since pidgin *has* the ability to alphabetize and sort the buddies, why 
not extend it to do the same feature for the groups? User friendliness 
goes a long way, specially for such a cool gadget as pidgin. I'm surprised 
no one has asked this, specially those who use pidgin for corporate notes 
sametime meeting, where there may be thousands of notes groups configured.

It is still easy, it just takes longer. And the fact that it takes a while
because you have a lot of them doesn't change the fact that it is
possible. You might be able to hand edit the blist.xml file while pidgin
isn't running and organize the groups by hand that way, but I'm not sure.
