You didn't mention which IM you use. In AIM it's easy. (I have
version 5.1 and I also use DeadAIM to get rid of AOL ads :-)
This is what you do:
1) Press the F3 key to view the AIM Preferences window. (You can also
get to Preferences through My AIM menu, Edit Options, Preferences...)
2) Click on Privacy (category on the left).
3) In "Who can contact me", choose "Allow only the users below."
4) Add *all your buddies nick names* to the list of users allowed to
contact you. (The "Allow List".)
5) Clock OK
One more thing: In Edit Profile, don't allow people to search for
Only the users you've listed in that "Allow List" will be able to see
I hope this helps.

A person who I thought was my friend has now started an anti-gay
tirade and has brought his friends into the mix sending hateful
messages to my live journal and over instant messages. This tirade is
going on three days now, I block them but of course, they get new
names and the messages don't end on homosexuality, it continues to
hateful messages for me being from a single parent home and therefor
an abomination, they go on to say that so are test tube babies, gay
parents shouldn't be able to raise kids,etc.,etc. And they proceed to
make racist remarks about me being part Native American, etc. I have
blocked them, but of course, they go and get new names. Under normal
circumstances, I can just brush things off, but the continuous
bashing is really starting to get to me. It is getting to the point
that I don't even want to get online anymore. I have saved all the
messages and lj logs. Any advice would be grately appreciated as I
have never really had to deal with this kind of problem before, even
though I am originally from the conservative south. I can show anyone
who is interested the files.
