This is VERY annoying and unwanted, and SHOULD be optable outof, as when it does the link, it "hides" one of them behind the other, so that it is hidden from the People list.
If you go to settings -> Accounts &sync, you can see the sync details under 'Manage Accounts'.
Uncheck the 'Contacts' button ifyou don't need. Ex: Facebook 'contacts' will be linked if it is selected.
Or simply press 'people' -> 'menu' and select 'view'. You can see all the contact list from where it is synced. You can also remove from there.
If this helped you, Just press THANKS. It's not really Hard to press!
