So basically, according to you, when a feature stops working, the mature and
normal thing to do is to remove it? Does it apply to all features, or just
the ones that you personally do not care about it?

Features can be removed when they are barely used and too expensive to
maintain, but that can not be a offhand decision.

I hardly expect our users to be filled with joy if you decide arbitrarily to
remove a feature they care about.
