Is there a way to ask Pidgin to not touch the "status" of any of my accounts, ever? I use different statuses at work vs my personal account, but pidgin is always mixing and matching them... I've tried disabling everything in Preferences > Status / Idle, but to no avail.

I'm using Pidgin 2.6.6 on Ubuntu 10.04.

Pidgin stored your status in ~/.purple/status.xml. You can delete it if you want to.

You can try this: chose the status box, chose New status..., Use a different status for some account. stick account what you want, add your status and click Use. – truongvan Dec 28 '12 at 3:09

I've come to the conclusion that this is not possible.
