I am using bitlbee3.0.1 without libpurple. when I try to block a gtalk buddy, it shows "Command `block' not supported by this protocol"

I know bitlbee-libpurple can do this. But I only use gtalk and msn, and don't want to install libpurple.

I wish bitlbee will support block/allow command in jabber

Is this being worked on at all? I'm very dismayed to discover that this isn't possible; I've just acquired my first jabber spammer, and there doesn't seem to be any way for me to prevent them from contacting me.

It's open source. You don't get dismayed for a free service not paying attention to your request. You help them out by sending a patch. Your emergency is not our emergency.

How difficult would it be for a novice to create said patch?

I don't know. It should be fairly simple but if you haven't written C before that's going to be your biggest problem.

First, you need to figure out what XEP describes block list management though. At the time I wrote this module, I think there was nothing at all other than two methods not actually supported by any client.
