Do any of you actually use Y! IM any more?

"My God! It's full of [spammers]!" It seems like every time I connect, I'm hammered by spammers. I think it's because I set up an auto-responder to tell people to use my GMail account. Great for informing my friends, but also sending back a note to every spammer that I'm a live address. Grumble. IM spam is worse than e-mail spam, because they each require their own "click" to dismiss [or block, in my case].

As far as I know, the only person who has any use for Y!IM on my friends list might be dyanearden who occasionally channels her "inner camgirl" there. I used to use the webcam a lot, but now, not so much. Trillian Astra is promising that at the end of this next big re-factoring that the video capability will be back. Maybe I'll dip my toes in the water then.
