Permanently remove/hide pinned status messages
It would be nice if you didn't have to close the annoying status message that shows when you are in a conversation with someone with a status every time you open the conversations (especially on the web app). It would also be nice if there were a global option to prevent them from showing from anyone entirely.
Any update on this?
It's infuriating that whenever I close someone's status message in a chat, it's only temporary and will be back automatically as soon as I jump into other discussion and then come back.
Voted. This behavior would be less annoying if not for those folks at my organization who insist on little inspirational messages that read like a despair.com poster. :-(

There should be an option saying "Stop showing me this status".
Please allow a fix for this annoying status message, we are left powerless.
I think it would be great if once you close the message, it doesn't come back unless they change it or on a default frequency. If I had to close the message once a day, that would be better than every time I chat with someone.
