What is the use of Buddy List ?

    What is the use of "Buddy List" ?

    I have seen this thing in almost all forums, but I wonder what's the use of adding someone as a buddy. Will I get an email notification if my buddy starts a new thread ? Is anybody using the buddy list ?

    I think the main use is that if you restrict your private messages, you can use the buddy list to select who you wish to receive PM's from.

    Yeah, or the reverse with the ignore list (ask Cyrus about that one)
