When I do a command-c with Adium, it picks up the timestamps as well as the text I want. I've looked through the prefs with no luck. How can I just get the text? (I know I can use Textmate and then option-drag, but that's annoying.)
Adium does no specific processing of data when copying. The only way* to not copy the data is to not select it. If you want to copy several lines at once this means that you wither need to use the transcript viewer with timestamps hidden or use a message style that doesn't display the timestamp. on each message. Of the bundled styles, yMous has an option do this.
