iChat AV: AVOIDING UNWANTED CHATS

If you have a lot of buddies in your Buddy List, you can wind up with a lot of incoming chats, which is cool if you're sitting around doing nothing; but if you're trying to get some work done, it can drive you crazy. Here's how to narrow the list of who can get through (so you can get some work done). Press Command–, (Comma key) to bring up iChat's Preferences, go under Accounts, and then click on the Security tab at the top. You can go one of two ways: (1) Click on Allow Specific People, then click the Edit List button. Going this route, in the Edit List window you enter the email names of only the people you want to know you're online. To the rest of the people in your Buddy List (and the rest of the world), you're offline. Or (2) choose Block Specific People, and click the Edit List button to enter the people who, if they chatted with you, would drive you crazy. Either way, only the people you want to know you're online will know.
