Okay, this has gotten beyond one of those little life annoyances and has escalated to almost soap box pet peeve status. I can not figure out how in the world to turn off the ability for people to try and buddy list me in Yahoo Messenger chat. Iâ€™ve hidden my status, Iâ€™ve blocked anyone not on my friends list already, or only allowed those in my address book. Nothing seems to do the trick. I still get about five notifications a day that someone â€œhas requested to add you to their online list.â€
If anyone has a solution for exactly how I can configure my settings and preferences in Yahoo Mail!, Yahoo Messenger, or my Yahoo account as a whole to no longer accept or see these requests, please, please, please leave me a comment and let me know.
