I have a contact in Pidgin with MSN; it shows always two small icons
with the contact: the avatar of the person and the logo of MSN; but,
sometimes it shows a third one on the left side, just a blue filled
circle; see attachment;

What does it mean this blue circle?

Btw: Why is MSN still working, don't they announced to shoot it down on
March 15?
