User resource id display

Description (last modified by Robby)

Why does pidgin display the resource id:

Resource: BlackBerry******
Priority: 0
Status: Available: 


Full Name: 

It seems like too much information to be displayed, and as I understand it, at least with google talk, the server determines where the messages are supposed to be sent. There are some privacy implications in this, at least for people that don't want to broadcast to anybody on their list using pidgin where exactly they're logged in. It also results in whatever status message that is in use at that time to be displayed multiple times, both on the get info window, and on the tooltip. The tooltip display can create a (slight) lag issue when a contact is logged in on multiple devices/pages.

Sorry if this is mis-categorized, I've been looking around for something on this for a few days, and haven't found anything about it.
