Did you guys just decide to spontaneously take a screen shot of your computer then say, "Hey, wait! I don't want people on maximumpc.com to see my user name!" I thought you could do better.

While I have no problem disclosing my own screenname for thousands to see (I use One4yu2c for pretty much everything), I'm not going to assume the same for someone on my contact list, which is the name that I blacked out in that screenie.

I can understand that, its just blacking out a name is sooooo 80's. Try pixelating that part of the image.

Glad I won't have to deal with this. I hated the ads when they were on the bottom of my MSN clients, I don't think I could actually deal with them in the window itself. There's just a certain amount of neatness I expect from IM clients..

Pidgin FTW

I've been using alternate IM clients (first Trillian, then Gaim/Pidgin) ever since AOL decided to bundle spyware into AIM (not like it wasn't a shitty enough program already, right?).  I don't see a single ad from these greedy bastiches.
