wouldn't it be nice if they could modify the contact lists to allow us to just leave a short message or even an icon next to our names that says "i am busy leave me alone" as opposed to setting yourself to busy which no one knows until they actually try to im you ? that way you can be more selective in who you place on offline. for those who bother you with something important ? ok thats fine but those who bother you with some asinine question or comment knowing you asked to be left alone ? well they are not really friends then are they ?
