Are you talking about the "Also include namey and namey" that shows up on the lower-right of the To: box?

If that's what you mean, I don't believe you can turn it off. I think it's a new feature. :-/

boo hiss.

i mean really; that has to be the most impractical thing ever given how easy it is to put names into the to box in the first place. distracting clutter. i wish i could tell flashblock to disable it or something (even though i know it's not flash).

Try clicking on Contacts on the left hand side. On my page it is below the Gmail logo, listed below Mail and above Tasks.
I was able to delete tons of emails that way and they will stop showing up in your list. I don't know if this makes them stop showing up permanently or not, but I hope so.

thing is, i don't want them to be deleted permanently, i still want to be able to type their name in and have gmail understand the email address from that contact history. but creating "suggested names" to the email i'm already sending is a silly feature that i will never use, so i want to be able to turn that off.
