    Gotta figure this name display out (Adium)
    Apparently my real name is displayed when my AIM sn is added. I added my self to my own buddy list and my real name shows up rather than the screen name. I'm (fairly certain) that I changed all of the settings to see that this doesn't happen. Is this because I'm viewing myself? How do I stop this?

    it's picking it up from your address book, showing the name associated with that email/sn
