Gchat is an easy, accessible way to chat with people through your Google e-mail account (also known as Gmail). You may add your contacts to Gchat manually, but often a contact will be automatically added to your list if they are also a Gmail user and have corresponded with you through e-mail. You may end up with an unwanted Craigslist seller or a potential employer on your buddy list. It may seem tricky at first glance, but there is a simple solution for removing your unwanted contacts from Gchat without deleting their e-mail address or contact information.
