Sounds like you're on OS X.  We recommend Adium on OS X, in fact.

The behavior in the email you're referencing was a failure to
understand the Windows system tray icon behavior.  (I don't understand
it, either, I don't use Windows, so I can't help.)  It's not related
to whatever issues you're having.

What that has to do with taking things seriously, I don't know.  I
look forward to my paycheck, I guess.  :-P
