 I said before, Microsoft seems to have change some of their server
 configuration which obviously disrupted the reliable operation of this
 feature. This is probably why they silently dropped the feature in Windows
 Live Messenger 2011.

 more reliable than the old MSNPv1x protocol.

 I personally have no problem if this feature is dropped. I never actually
 had to use the feature, but it really confused me at first, made me think
 that 90% of my contacts removed me.
