 A Simple Trouble

Firstly, I've found a bug: when I select a group (Free, Invisible, etc.), I see a pop-up menu with the commands to send a message or a file. It seems absurd, for in a list there could be no a single account.
Secondly, I can't find a way to connect another person. Should he use the program necessarily?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
