There is no list of blocked numbers within Pidgin.  No password is 
needed to access Pidgin.  Any list of blocked numbers will be held by 
your instant messaging provider.  Any password will be checked by your 
instant messaging provider, not by Pidgin (and a good provider will 
store the password in a way in which it takes excessively long to work 
out the original password.

People here have absolutely no access to either.

(Would someone else like to try to explain this, as I seem to be going 
round in circles.)
