IT'S DRIVING ME KAZOO. sigh, Adium. Why you gotta be so anti.
eta: OKAY WELL. it's fixed now. here is apparently the fix:
1. rename old support folder and restart, forcing Adium to create a new one. This actually fixes nothing.
2. Throw out the new folder and replace the old folder exactly the way it was.
3. MAGIC. EVERYTHING IS FIXED.
wtfingf, adium. you quack.
