    So after installing Lion my account name is appearing on my menu bar and it annoys me because it's both unnecessary and a waste of bar space, anyone know how to turn that off?

    I agree. I'd like to get rid of it on my computer too.

    Can you Command + Drag it off like in previous versions? If not, that's disappointing.

    Command-drag it off, or disable Fast User Switching in system preferences.
