Description firepol 2007-07-30 16:01:09 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.7)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages
OS:                Linux

If I go to the "Settings" menu > Appearance > use emoticons > I disable the checkbox.. i still get all the (stupid, spamming, disturbing) CUSTOM emoticons of certain MSN users in my list (I don't want to simply block them, I'm trying to get rid of their custom smileys).

If a user disables emoticons it's for disabling them totally. Please correct this behavior of kopete.

Alternatively (even better) add an option to disable (globally) the custom emoticons. Just in the same (Appearance) menu.

Even better, add a feature to let the user block standard emoticons or custom smileys coming from specific users that abuse them (especially kids).

Like one would press the right-mouse button and select "Block user" it would be really really nice to have an option called "Block user emoticons".

Thank you.

Appereance->UseEmoticons is considered as well when retrieving custom
emoticons: Only if emoticons should be used and custom emoticons are enabled,
they will be downloaded and displayed.

Nice patch. Thanks! :) 

The consts at the beginning are unnecessary, and so I'll remove them before I commit the patch.
