Because they pop up under the mouse?
On my multi-monitor godforsaken Gnome3 desktop they appear almost in
random locations and sometimes popup and block something I'm trying to
click on to get focus because the "focus follows mouse" setting doesn't
so well, if at all. Admittedly some of the popups are also due to email.

If the user wants different settings for different peers, the
has to be per peer.
If the user wants the same setting for all peers, including those not
configured yet, and wants to turn them on and off for all peers at once,
then it has to be global.
I personally expect the second case to be more likely. But what do I
know... user preferences are notoriously hard to predict
Agreed that user prefs are impossible to predict. If it's not too
much coding, many hierarchical config frameworks allow a global setting
which can be over-ridden by a per-peer setting.

There could be a "notify level" similar to the current log level: 0 =
everything, 1 = only errors, 2 = errors and info messages.
What's the difference between 0 and 2? I would think that 0 = nothing?
