AOL IM and Yahoo! Messenger: A pox on both your houses.

Feature suggestion

To: AOL Instant Messenger, cc: Yahoo! Messenger

The bots make AIM and Yahoo! Messenger unusable. How about a version where people write an antibot verify code so AIM can be usable again?

Steps to Reproduce the Issue:
1.) Use AOL Instant Messenger or Yahoo! Messenger
2.) Experience the despair at being hammered by bots
3.) write this report
4.) copy report to competitors

While you're at it, how about a "Chat on this!" in the browser toolbar so we can join chat groups based on the URL of the browser?
