I like using pidgin, but I recently start receiving lots of spam IM. I want to block any msg coming from outside my list, but allow friend request to pass through. How to do that?


from the forum (, without answer:
What do these options actually do?  Do they only prevent people from 
sending me a message, or does it block them from seeing my online status 
as well?  Does it block people from sending me authorization requests?
