char *user_info = purple_account_get_user_info(account);
but it always returns null.
How do I get the user information via libpurple as a char value?
Here is a screenshot of these informations, that everybody could call
via right click on an ICQ buddy, first entry "Get info".
Here is the background for my question:
I use Pidgin as my main IM-Client and I am happy with it. But there is
one thing that is really annoying. I receive a lot of authentication
requests from spam bots on the ICQ protocol.
I use Pidgin-Privacy-Please plugin to stop spam bots but there is only
an option to block all auth request from ICQ/Oscar. That would be to much.
Now I want to extend this plugin to filter auth requests with a RegEx.
The user informations from this spam bots contain very often urls from
tinyurl.com. I guess no real user would use a tinyurl link to his/her
website. So this could be a very good filter item.
