zynga, you need to create a code that goes both ways to remove friends not only from your list but should be simultaneously both ways automatically . I'm tired of receiving RSS request from people I've removed. Remember there are reasons why we remove people.
Where has operation killswich gone this week? Has there been an announcement made that I have missed...on my 5 accounts that I am on multiple times daily?? I'm not missing it for the severe lack of rare loot or for the same boring stages that we have had for years nor am I missing it for the ridiculously low amount of resources that u get. No,I'm missing it for doing my daily call to arms targets...n pretty much the only reason I asked about it.
