ICQ Spam

On the subject of spam. Is it just me, or has spam on the instant messenger program ICQ become just as bad as (or worse than) e-mail?

Just refuse to accept messages/connections from users not on your Contact List, and voila, all the spam is gone.

I would rather not do that, but if spam keeps coming in at the rate it has I will do it. It is nice to know that option is there. In the mean time the ignore button is being used for all it's worth.

I used to get a lot of spam on ICQ, until one day this link came across also: »www.binaryresearch.net/blockme/
I did some of the things suggested and the spam was basically gone after that.
