It would be nice if Pidgin could auto-block bots, especially in Yahoo chatrooms, like Gyachi does. They tend to get very annoying and it's frustrating to have to keep clicking ignore on them every few seconds. What if Pidgin could learn along the way between bots and actual people by judging the text usage?
why not just use Xchat for IRC. it is less resource hungry. I used to use MIRC years ago and knew how to do this that and the other. Now I know nothing other than a user put me onto Xchat and it felt nicer. sudo apt-get install xchat
