"Unfriend" Declared Word of the Year

The New Oxford American Dictionary declared "Unfriend" the word of the year. It beat out hashtag, netbook and sexting, among other nominated words. Oxford defines the verb as: "To remove someone as a 'friend' on a social networking site such as Facebook." I think they should include offline usage, too, like when you stop calling people back entirely or leave people at rest stops on road trips. What, you guys don't do that? [CNN]
