Yeah, I'm had something of a similar concern, and now I'm starting to
get at least one a day, and it's annoying me. My main concern,
actually, is the log files...I can't stand the fact that I'm having junk
logs started for these things, one day, I actually weeded the damn mess
out. I was thinking about a plugin that would add a menu choice to the
"Conversation" menu, or the button bar (right by "Block"), to delete
logs, and have this option show up if the person is not on your buddy
Point expanded out of parenthesis: (my brain is fried right now after
taking the GRE)
you most likely wouldn't want to delete the log under normal
circumstances - but I think there should be some form of priortization
w.r.t. the person being on your buddy list, and making the delete option
more accessible - perhaps even a gaim_request box when you close the
conversation after not having typed anything. I just realized that I
really like that last idea - offering you the choice to delete logs for
IMs you don't respond to - that could be really useful to me. After I
do my thesis, and *ahem* start & finish my independent study, I'll try
that, unless someone else runs with it (be my guest :)).
/me leaves this mess of an e-mail to eat dinner...
