cannot remove akonadi

becouse on this system i am a desktop user,
i wanted to remove akonadi server
on Statement
We intend to design an extensible cross-desktop storage service for PIM data and meta data providing concurrent read, write, and query access. It will provide unique desktop wide object identification and retrieval.
Common PIM data cache
Type agnostic design
Generic offline access, change recording and replay
Generic conflict detection and resolution
Resources are groupable by profile
Items composed of independently retrievable multiple parts
Zero-copy retrieval possible
Concurrent access allows background activity independent of UI client
Syncing mail, calendar, addressbooks to remote servers
Syncing with mobile devices
Permits semantic desktop infrastructure to access PIM data
Out-of-process search
Multi-process design
Crash isolation
Large items can't block whole system
Linkage by IPC allows proprietary components
Thin client installations can share components for scalability
So on this statement i dont need
wide object identification and retrieval.
So i quit the connection witch is standart CONNECTED,
and some false information so it does not connect anymore

and what does this have to do whit clients like kopete messenger
and my desktop intergration,
so i desided to remove it,
but it's barly possible

If you succeed in removing it, subsequent updates will keep wanting to put it back.

I really liked KDE 3.x. Then I needed to free up RAMs on the old computer I was using and moved to Fluxbox.

Akonadi has pushed me to a point of actively disliking KDE.

I really really like a lot of KDE programs, but KDE as a desktop has become an ako-annoyance.
