At first I thought the MSN servers where down but after pulling up GAIM's debug menu and later pidgin's, I noticed MSN's servers where disconnecting me and sending a message. Here's what I saw in my debug menu.

I download the MSN messenger client and I can connect fine. Is Microsoft's blocking 3rd party clients now or is this just me misunderstanding the message?
