It means the person has ICQ a web chat thingy...

If they are green it means their ICQ is activated and you can now talk to them on ICQ.

If you really want it. I got rid of mine when the spam got unbearable. Anyone know how bad it is for spam these days?

it's annoying for spam, but it really stands for i seek you which is shortened down to ICQ

We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

The existance of flamethrowers says that someone, somewhere, at sometime said "I need to set that thing on fire, but it's too far away."

It's really bad. Every couple of minutes there's always some bot trying to add you, and people sending you messages who want to employ you...ugh, I finally got rid of mine purely for the spam reason

You only get spam if you leave your client setup to let random people message you. I've used the same icq number since about 1998, run practically every day, and I've had less than 100 pieces of spam in that time. Compare that to email....
