I've opted for getting a notification if someone on my friends list de-friends me. And it doesn't work, damnit.

It's not that I'm going to start a whingefest when I'm de-friended, unlike some who pestered me endlessly via e-mail when I decided I wasn't particularly interested in what they had to say. I don't think it's horrible to be de-friended, on LJ or IRL, and dog knows I de-friend quite a bit myself (interestingly, usually only IRL, it apparently takes a lot more to bore me or piss me off online).

I just like to know when it occurs. In this case, I can easily find the notification message about the person friending me, but the de-friending is nowhere to be found.

Actually, I probably won't de-friend back, since I enjoy reading this particular journal and don't have a hang-up on mutual friending, but I would have appreciated a notification so I could stop commenting, at least. I'm uncomfortable with pushing my comments on someone who isn't all that interested in me, and I strongly dislike feeling that I'm being pushy.

I've been told on several occasions that I'm very un-pushy, and I think my notion of my own pushiness is probably exaggerated, but even if nobody else on the planet find it irritating that a de-friended person yaks all over their journal, I would prefer being notified so I could peacefully read and keep my comment-gob shut.

Oh how I hate it when nifty features don't do what they're supposed to do.

Anyway. I require more interesting and preferably amusing journals to read. Do you have any suggestions, friends list?
