    earlier today, some spammer wanted to contact me and was trying to be a sex fiend or something disgusting via msn. i deleted and blocked her from my adium list, but there's still traces of her on adium (on the blist.xml). i tried deleting her on the list, but she's still there. is there a way to completely eliminate any trace of the sex fiend on my computer? thanks.

    There's not much you can do, apart from blocking and removing the contact (you could make sure that only people whom you authorize can see your online status, but that's another matter).

    As far as I can tell, as long as you appear on the spammer's contact list, you cannot erase him/her/it completely. It's an MSN thing.

    Not if you've blocked and removed her; she can't contact you via msn unless she uses another account, or just emails you.
