Yes, I can turn chat off, but sometimes I chat with some people I know
and if you click on the wrong name you automatically send him/her an
invitation to Google chat. Quite annoying.

 It;s just under where it tells you how much of your Gmail

Yes, it's already setup this way but yet all contacts appear in the
pane. I think this is a bug


A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.
