In Empathy IRC, how do I turn off the "joined" and "disconnected" messages?

At the moment, there is no easy way to do this.

There is currently an open bug report regarding this issue: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=599453

In the meantime, I'd recommend switching to xchat or irssi, which are both great chat programs (xchat is GUI, and irssi is CLI), and are a lot less buggy than empathy. (unless you feel like testing/debugging/extending empathy)

Here's another vote for xchat. It's a great IRC client, at least with respect to empathy. –  Leif Andersen Mar 14 '11 at 1:08
    
Ok, thanks for the answer. I do like the idea of having an integrated solution, so hopefully this is addressed soon. –  Chris Mar 14 '11 at 1:59

And how would one kill JOINS and PARTS in xchat? In irssi, it's a matter of entering '/ignore * JOINS PARTS', but I haven't figured out a way to do this in xchat. –  Wesley Rice May 24 '11 at 4:41
