Is this in ICQ? I had that problem - I had to quit Pidgin, load the 
official ICQ client, remove him from the buddy list, quit ICQ, I then 
reloaded the ICQ official client (to make sure he was gone), then 
quit ICQ, then reopened Pidgin.

There are some AIM "Buddies" that are bots that I'm not sure if you 
can remove, but there's about a dozen of those, not just one.
