Recently I've noticed people showing up on my iChat Jabber list who are neither in my Gmail contacts nor my Mac address book. The only electronic connection I have to them, in fact, is G+. I've deleted them multiple times from iChat but they keep coming back. The only thing I can figure is that G+ is now pushing the encircled into your gmail contacts list. Has anyone else seen this or know of a solution?

iChat is compatible with Google Talk. Nobody's "pushing" anything. If you don't want your G-Talk buddies in iChat, deselect your GTalk login from iChat's "accounts" preference.

No, you don't understand. Google Talk is one thing. G+ is another. People from circles on G+ are being imported to Google Talk and, hence, iChat.

Ah, thanks for clarifying that.

Google appears to believe differently than you do about whether Google Talk and G+ are separate anymore, wouldn't you say?

Anyway, the solution remains the same, since there is nothing iChat can do about decisions taken by Google.
