Description Debarshi Ray 2017-07-13 08:55:17 EDT
Pidgin upstream has removed support for MySpace because it doesn't work anymore. See: https://bitbucket.org/pidgin/www/src/tip/htdocs/ChangeLog?fileviewer=file-view-default

It says:

* Removed the MSN protocol plugin. It has been unusable and dormant for some
  time. MSNP18 has been discontinued and the protocol plugin would require a
  large update to start working again. See: http://ismsndeadyet.com/ The
  third-party Pidgin SkypeWeb plugin, however, should provide enough
  functionality as a replacement if people still want to use MSN:

Let's do the same to reduce the total code surface exposed to security attacks.
