Due to growing ICQ spam with russian messages, it would be nice to answer "no" to all pending questions. Some days I have about 15 questions in my list, and answering all 15 with "no" is boring.

So please think about "no all" or "no *" ;)

Don't say no, that's also a "sign of life". Ignore them. See ignore_auth_requests setting.

This setting was unknown to me, thank you. Bug can be closed if noone needs/wants wildcards in yes/no requests ;)

I think there's a separate bug for that already.

Since root is asking the questions, it's a bother. There needs to be a way to say no to all root's questions.

This is a problem because every time I log off and on again, root asks me the same questions again, and they just keep accumulating. If I am asked one new question each week, and I answer each one, then at the end of the year I log off and on again, I'll have 52 questions to answer AGAIN. Already-been-answered questions are repeated, no matter how many times they get answered.

I think "the real WTF" here is that you're getting the same 52 questions every time you log in. Which IM protocol is that?

I can confirm that for Yahoo, but not for Oscar. I get the same question again and again for the only Yahoo buddy in my list (asking for authorization).
