Managing Yahoo Instant Messenger (YIM) Buddy Lists?
I have a few questions about Yahoo! messenger (YIM), since they don't supply customer support. When I add someone to my 'buddies' list, I have one of two scenarios to play out afterwards.
So in other words, once you allow someone to add you as a buddy, how can you ever *disallow that*?
The answer your first question is yes. Everyone who uses YIM receives a dialog box when someone wants to add them. It's only in the latest version that you are actually forced to choose, in older versions of YIM you were able to bypass the "Add Buddy�? process by clicking Cancel.
As for your second question the answer is block. You'll want to "delete friend�? and possibly "ignore friend�? but before you do either of those you'll want to block them that way they won't know when you're online.
That should address your YIM (Yahoo Instant Messenger) questions, I hope!
Thanks to Mya Leigh for her help with this question.
