Queries are just like channels, except that only you and the other person can participate in the channel.
To leave the query, just close the tab. Note however, that if the other person sends you another message in the query, the tab will open again.
To leave all queries, choose → on the main menu, or press F11 key.
When someone else initiates a query with you, Konversation creates a new tab with their nickname. If you don't wish to talk with the person, close the tab.
