word of the day: spim – instant messenger spam

I'm suprised that this is an issue given the privacy settings in instant messaging programs.  Checking my Trillian, here's a rundown that would prevent your from getting spim from anyone you didn't know:

AIM: Allows you to either set an allow list or that only users in your buddy list can contact you

MSN:  Allows you to set an allow list

Yahoo!:  Lets you set a block list or that only users in your contact list can contact you
