    Hmmm, I turned off my "available for public random chat" when I was using ICQ. I got plenty of random chats with girls from the interior BC and other assorted 3rd world countries. I got sick of it. [​IMG]
    I use Trillian now...

    *L*.... no, this was actually spam. I have that turned off, as well as "only accept messages from users on my contact list" however Erica somehow gets past it.

    Apparently Erica likes me too. I went into "Security & Permissions" and set the permission level to high and checked all the yellow check marks in "Communication Events". She hasn't bothered me since.

    Just use the "Ignore User" option, and you'll never hear from them again.

    Ignore user doesn't work. I tried that last week.
    already had all my yellow boxes checked.

    However since I turned permissions to high last night I have received no more msgs from "her". Hopefully it's just not because "she" hasn't been sending any.

    Thanks guys. I'll update if any further problems.

    I'm having problems with this "Innocent Virgins" dialer program. It keeps sneaking in, even through the firewall. Any ideas? Someone else must have gotten it
