    Ok not all of you, but the ones who insist on changing their nickname like, EVERY day. And it's not even a nickname! It's moods and what people are eating and where they're going and UGH.

    Fuck i don't even know who half the ppl on my list are anymore.

    No one wants to hold their cursor over every name to figure out who you are, assuming we know your email. And it's not like i'm going to memorize all of your hotmail addresses.

    werd. I don't have a lot of people on my msn list but it would be annoying if people did that.

    Get Trillian

    Right Click - Rename Contact - Problem solved

    I don't understand why everyone doesn't use Trillian yet..

    dude, just change your settings if you don't wanna see it.

    contacts --> manage contacts --> view contacts by ---> select "email address" instead of "friendly name"

    problem solved. nothing to see here, people. carry on.

    I've been saying this all along. Which is why I refused as long as possible to use MSN. But some friends have converted over from ICQ to MSN and so I had little choice but to adapt.

    I usually warn people about it and tell them to stop changing their names so often and to something that gives me no clue as to their identity.

    But if they continuously do it, I just usually end up deleting them from my list. I hate when they message me and then I constantly have to ask "Who is this?".

    Cheers ... Ian :)

    I tried it using several different versions. I did not like the configuration options. I also don't like some of the interface. And some of the programming of it has been sloppy.

    Cheers ... Ian :)

    or you could just type them a message telling them to fuck off, and then blocking them from your list :)

    yea but who wants to see email addresses? i cant remember what stupidass hotmail address equates to what person...

    like superstar4651231283retard@hotmail.com ? ??

    hence another reason i dont use messenger. aside from all the security related crap.

    Get the Pro version.
    If you want a "demo" I can arrange that.

    As far as configuration, its as flexible as anything I can imagine. I have my tricked out nicely.

    Plus it uses less memory to support ALL IM formats than ICQ does by itself

    but the point is that i don't want to memorize my entire contact list's worth of email addresses, especially since they're mostly hotmail so it's all shit like fLufFyBuNny69696@hotmail.com

    what's soooooo hard with sticking to one nickname and not feeling the need to update everyone on your current state of being 24/7??

    Problem not solved. Because now you have to memorize everyone's e-mail address. And it is often hard to differentiate who is who when lots of people on your list have e-mail addresses like sugababe778@hotmail.com, hotchick_69@hotmail.com, rave_gurl99@hotmail.com, and ilovecolinfarrell@hotmail.com. ;)

    Cheers ... Ian :)
