Curious George: I'm running iChat on OSX. For some reason, it automatically adds to my buddy list anyone who IMs me. This is really irritating. How do I fix it?
  • Someone here may be able to help you.
  • After a little looking, you and this guy may be able to help eachother.
  • iChat > Preferences > Privacy > Allow People in my Buddy List doesn't prevent this? The IMer who messages you would have to be in the list already. Good luck!
  • the problem with that is that I want to be able to GET IMs from people, I just don't want them all on my list- I only want people that I talk to regularly on my buddy list. I ended up posting to that discussion board, we'll see if it helps. At any rate, I didn't know about it before, so thanks mexican!
