as a user i absolutely agree with this. Additionally i think, that such
useless discussions are more than counterproductive and should be avoid
by silently ignoring those complaints at all. Reasonable suggestions
have always been accepted by the Developers and, in most cases,
implemented. And what we got is the most powerful IM out there. And if
anyone is unhappy with Pidgin, he simply is free to:
1. help to improve it (which does _not_ mean to rant in the mailing
2. use another (better?) IM of choice (will be hard to find one, if at
all ;-) )

So let the Developers do, what they can best: improve Pidgin for all of

Thank you, guys. You all do a great job and i really appreciate this.
