Sometimes it *is* annoying, but sometimes it's helpful; as I indicated,
when I may receive an IM at any point but have no way of knowing when,
it can be nice to have the bell to let me know when it happens. If I
don't want to be interrupted by such sounds, I can easily turn them off.

I do agree with you in principle, I just differ somewhat in practice.
