Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 480994
Can't block buddy AIM My TV Bud
Last modified: 2013-01-13 07:39:28 EST
Description of problem:
Every time I start pidgin a new group called "AIM Bots" is added and a new buddy called "My TV Bud" is added. I have tried deleting the buddy, deleting the group, and adding "My TV Bud" and mytvbud to the block list. Nothing works. Next time I start Pidgin the group and buddy reappear.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
100% of the time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start pidgin
2. AIM Bots Group appears, My TV Bud appears
Unwanted spam bots appear on buddy list
I should be able to block unwanted buddys
This bug can be closed. Either AIM did away with the offending "My TV Bud" bot or one of the pidgin updates between 2.5.3 and now fixed the problem. Either way, I am no longer experiencing this issue.
