Really? What if someone on IRC harasses you by messaging you once a minute
until the end of time? Or even once an hour? You don't think people should
be able to ignore those messages?
The official Yahoo! client has a client-side "ignore people not on my buddy
list" option. I think this an entirely reasonable feature to have. You're
saying that it's a bug?
