Summary: Privacy settings ignored

Initial Comment:
I have "Allow only the users on my buddy list" set 
for my ICQ account. But I keep getting pestered by 
unsolicited ICQ messages from Russia promoting porn 
sites or from teenagers in Germany looking for chat

the Privacy dialog is admittedly FAR from intuitive.  Each
protocol uses it differently.  in the case of oscar, AIM and
ICQ even use it differently.  ONLY AIM actually uses the
drop down as a selector, the others, including ICQ, use it
to switch between displayed lists, but not to actually
control anything.

For ICQ, this is further complicated by the fact that the
values do mean something, but that YOU do not control which
is in use (directly) but rather your state does.

Get version 2.0.0beta3 if you don't already have it. 
It fixes the problem with ICQ and "web aware" settings, 
which cause this intense flow of crap from russia.
I posted the same query a few days ago! ;-)

Good luck!
