Master/domain switch to block external notifications via sametime

Sometimes internal users receive external notifications from unknown users via sametime. If the internal user doesn’t know the person and he wants to block it, the only way to do that if he adds the unwanted contact to "The following external contacts are not allowed to see your online status" under Sametime--Privacy.

But what if the internal user keeps receiving notifications, it would put an unnecessary workload on them to add each external contacts by manually.

It would be great to have a master switch to block all external notifications or/and  to block domains in sametime client.
 For example domain block: “*"  or ability to add wildcard characters to the Name list.

    this will be considered when support for a gateway or external user connections is available in versions 12 or higher.

    1.If the software can not control by the user, I think it's really a disaster.

      We all know, blacklist is not a full resolution if we face a adding issue which like a bomb from external users.

     which is very similar like the phone call.

    2. need a master switch to block all external notification(user can control) really usefully.

     for example, in China webchat or qq, all this IMs have this feature.

    3. my suggestion there is a soft way,  user can set a question when external user adding, if the external user's answer is right, then, the user can get the external notification.
