I think it would be more useful to be able to alter your broadcasted 
availability to groups rather than putting these users on your 
blacklist. While at work, I may not want to talk to people who are not 
in my 'Work' groups, but I don't want other messages to be thrown away 
or the recipient to receive an error indicating that they are banned 
from talking to me.
