    So I've got adium here and its a little hard switching from aim on a pc to adium on a mac. Most of the interface is the same and all but in my buddy list it shows the people's nicknames which were in my aim account in case I forgot who was im'ing me. Anyways I have unchecked the "Use Nickname If Available" option under advanced settings and it still manages to show up. Any ideas? Is there something else that I might still have checked? Thanks

    There isn't an alias in there, nothing is filled in and yet the persons name rather then their sn shows up
