Pidgin Feature Requests

Due to the ever increasing yahoo messenger spam I have two feature requests.

1) Every time I log into my yahoo accounts through pidgin I get about 10 or
15 friend requests that are actually spam bots trying to get me to add them
to my friend list. It would be nice if Pidgin allowed me to block all friend
requests, conference requests, and any other requests. To make it even
better, it could block all friend requests unless the user is already on my
friend list, that way I could add a friend and not have to turn off the
friend request block when the friend tries to add me.

2) When removing someone from my yahoo messenger list, I would like to be
able to also remove my ID from the other person's friend list as well.
Currently NoBuddy does this but it does not work on Windows 7 and Yahaven
does it also, but it is only a Yahoo messenger client.

3) I know no current 3rd party yahoo chat client does this, but it would be
awesome if Pidgin supported photo sharing. Send file almost never works, and
photo sharing is the only reason I even still have yahoo messenger

Thanks for reviewing my feature requests.
