Unfriend? A sign of the times

The New Oxford American Dictionary word of the year for 2009 has been announced:  unfriend

Without further ado, the 2009 Word of the Year is: unfriend.

unfriend – verb – To remove someone as a ‘friend’ on a social networking site such as Facebook. As in, “I decided to unfriend my roommate on Facebook after we had a fight.” -- OUP Blog

Sounds kind of harsh, doesn't it?
