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

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