 If I change privacy account setting e.g. to "Allow only the users on my
 buddy list" this setting doesn't persist application restart. Content of
 ~/.purple/accounts.xml is without modification. Very annoyed at spammed
 XMPP protocol.

 Pidgin 2.11.0-1.fc24 (libpurple 2.11.0)

Comment (by nesnera):

 This setting is forgotten also if you reconnect. Is there any way how to
 protect myself against a lot of russian spam?

 Any chance? It's really very annoying.
 [[https://files.openalt.org/index.php/s/ttXYNuSYqatOtw1|My blocklist]] has
 almost 400 items and finally doesn't work at all.
 (I tried append my actual blocklist as file, but Akismet rejected
 upload..)

Comment (by sudoman):

 I'm not really experienced in XMPP block list issues, but I'll try to
 help.

 A friend told me that this was working in the version of Pidgin in
 Trisquel 8, which is based off of Ubuntu 16.04, which has an older version
 of Pidgin than you have, so that is strange. Perhaps it is because they
 are using ejabberd as their XMPP server and you are not? It may also have
 to do with the method you are using to block people. If your block lists
 are only locally stored, then offline messages might not be blocked when
 you start up again.

 Have you tried blocking people through Pidgin's menu system in a chat
 window? I believe that sends the block request to the XMPP server which
 will either accept, or ignore and store or forget the value, depending on
 the server. Whether Pidgin remembers to honor blocks after restarting is
 another matter. There might be an additional configuration item somewhere
 in Pidigin (possibly under the plugins menu) for that.

 If you open up a console window before blocking a contact, you can watch
 the messages sent between Pidgin and your server. This might help you
 diagnose the issue and possibly automate whatever method works for making
 persistent blocks.

 This is a short read and may be helpful while observing XML messages in

Comment (by nesnera):

 Replying to [comment:3 sudoman]:[[BR]]
 Thank you for your suggestion, but my problem is little bit different.
 When is the Privace set to "Allow only the users on my buddy list"
 blocking works well.
 But if Pidgin is reopened or reconeted this setting is forgoten and is
 switched to "Block only the users below". (In this case XMPP blocking
 doesn't work at all and it's wrong, but I don't feel it as primary problem
 for me.)[[BR]]
 Can someone else confirm that the Privace setting isn't preserved?[[BR]]
 (Screenshots pidgin_menu.png and pidgin_choices.png are attached.)
