 Per the discussion above, because the feature already exists. See my
 conversation with others four years ago.

 Of course, they've known for many years that the manner in which it is
 achieved is hopelessly unintuitive, and given that they're still getting
 requests to implement a feature that already exists some eight years after
 this ticket was started, they clearly couldn't give a hoot about improving

 But that's OK. This software is close to irrelevant now, anyway:


 Of course, that's partly because barely anybody in the English-speaking
 world uses almost any messenger except Facebook Messenger and Google Talk,


 That rather negates the need for a product like Pidgin, let alone one
 where the users are completely ignored and given no help whatsoever when
 they request a feature which already exists, rather than a pointer as to
 how to achieve their goal and an improvement in the clunky user interface.

 And with that, I'm done here. I stopped using Pidgin 2-3 years ago and
 never looked back. I've long since stopped using the software that
 replaced it, and all those outdated messenger logins, too. THe only reason
 I came here in the first place was out of amusement at seeing alerts for
 this in my inbox yet again, and now I'll go figure out how to turn those
 alerts off, so I don't see one of Pidgin's two remaining users asking this
 four years from now...
