    Over the last few years I've joined a bunch of wireless networks in hotels and other places. I want to remove all these old obsolete networks so that my Mac doesn't keep trying to join them, but every time I remove a bunch of them from Preferences > Network > Advanced, they seem to keep on coming back.

    I'd like to get rid of them - any ideas how I could achieve this?

    Thanks in advance

    It sounds like you have iCloud Keychain sync turned on. This causes those networks to get synced and keep coming back. There are some work arounds I have seen to fix it like here, but it seems to be an ongoing problem for people.
