That’s a touchy one. I completely see why you would delete her, but I’m a people pleaser. I deleted a friend’s crazy ex and when she noticed, I told her it must have been a mistake and added her again :P.

You could always go that route and just hide her updates?

As far as her life choices go….have you considered contacting Child Protective Services?

You didn’t have to remove her. I am not on FB so I don’t know but isn’t there a way you can do your settings so you don’t get notifications when she updates so you are not mired in the minutea of her daily life? Oh, and also what meerkat said too.

You can add her to the blocked persons list. She won’t know you did it but she simply won’t ever see your updates again.

I personaly dont understand why people feel the need to put every tiny detail of their lives on facebook. You can just block her or adjust settings so you dont see any posts or updates from her. I do that with annoying “friends”

I would.  Just because you dropped her on Facebook doesn’t mean she’s dropped out of your life.

Just don’t respond, if you’re really serious about cutting her out of your life now is a good time to start.

Listen, if you don’t want to be her friend on facebook then don’t be. Don’t feel bad about it either. You’re a big girl and don’t have to be friends with anybody you don’t want to be…especially if they’re making you uncomfrotable.

About the e-mail…I don’t know. I would probably ignore the first one..unless you’re ok with hurting her feelings because you probably will if you end up writing back. How close is the rest of the family with her? Will you hurting her feelings start world war 3 at christmas? If it was me personally, I would write her back and it would say something along the lines of you not being comfrotable with the racial slurs and not wanting to see them anymore.

@enoh102: You can have customized settings. Under privacy settings you can select “customize” at the bottom of each drop down list and at the bottom of the popup box there’s a place that says “Hide this from” were you can type her name and it’ll block her from seeing/posting in that particular area.

SERIOUSLY? Her posting the cost of her ring, out of all that, is what you’re concerned about?

Yikes!   I have a derrelict cousin who has similar posts, but I just hide her comments. 

It doesnt work all of the time though.  I will post a picture of me and my Fiance on a recent date and she will say something like ” you guys are so corny – who cares if you went on a brewery tour” … just… unneccessary comments… or If i post on my FI’s wall — I miss you babe!   SHe will comment on this saying.. “ohh baby baby i miss you so much, gag me” ….seriously?   She dates a new guy a week, has two kids from different men. She introduces her kids to them basically the morning after he sleeps over the first time, which just so happens to be their first date.  Why do I know this?  She talks about it on facebook! Hide your dirty laundry people!!!

I vote for keeping her de-friended and telling her that her dangerous lifestyles with her chlidren really stresses you out and upsets you.  Who cares if you offend her?  She is going to ruin her and her children’s lives by not taking good advice!

That really sucks! I think after blocking her off, you can also call their local Women’s help places and find out if there is anything you or they can do to help her out. That would be a noble gesture. She’s got problems that need to be resolved. If she ends up homeless on the streets, her daughter will be suffering needlessly with her. No future for the kid who did not do anything to deserve such a life! Cry I feel so mad @ people like your cousin! There are people who cannot have kids and she does but won’t take care of hers!
