Hello,

is there a way to block ICQ requests by charset?

I get per day nearly 200 "Buddy" requests and arround 130  appearing  in
my window without beeing accepted...

If the ICQ server can not block it, maybe Pidgin can check  the  charset
before displaying "Buddy" requests or open the message window?

I was 2 days not a home and when I cam  back,  I  had  over  800  pidgin
dialogs/windows open.  Fortunately a "killall pidgin" works wonder...

The machine is a Quad-Opteron 880 with 32 GByte of  memory,  if  someone
wonders, how a X-Window-System can survive with 800 pidgin windows.

Thanks, Greetings and nice Day/Evening
