ICQ

MAKE ICQ A PRIVATE CLUB

The Annoyance:

I'm tired of every Tom, Dick, and Harry being able to add me to their Contact Lists. Can I exercise some control over who considers me a buddy?

The Fix:

Of all the instant messaging programs, only ICQ lets you control who adds you to their Contact Lists. Choose Main → Preferences and Security. In the screen that appears, choose General from the Security section. Check the "My authorization is required before users add me to their Contact List" box, then click OK.
