[jitsi-users] has become Away/Available messages in message pane


#1

I'm new to Jitsi, and I'm probably just missing an obvious preferences
tick, but my chat windows fill with "has become away/available"
messages. I'm not sure why the status notifications are being pushed to
the message window at all (a somewhat redundant bit of data compared to
the status color dot at any given time). And while I can see the value
in stalkerizing someone to have a continuous record of every status
change, it makes the chat window somewhat less useful for chat,
especially as the status seems quite sensitive, viz (this is real data):

Excellent - thank you.

I'd also very much like the option of turning off all notification
popups but can't find that option either (unselecting "Use task bar /
dock alerts" does not seem to do this). This is very much a personal
preference and I know my usage modality may be an edge case, but one of
the reasons I resist chat is that I do not like having incoming messages
break my chain of thought (this is one thing skype gets right).
