Bug Description

In empathy (Empathy on Ubuntu 12.10 using gnome 3.6 I can no longer block spammers from MSN. I can decline their invite but I have no way to actually select to block them.

Can we not add this option back in again since it was working great in Ubuntu 12.04?

No problem!

Well actually teh only option i have on the dialog in Gnome 3.6 (on the bottom dash) is to decline the person. They keep attempting to access my account. In the previous version of Empathy there seemed to be a way to ignore spammers from contacting you (weird usernames with numbers adn junk). With the new version it seems to have gone away :(

The relevant decline is right at the bottom of the log.
