Are there any plans to add back the "library.removeScrobble" method to the API?

I know the documentation doesn't include it anymore, just didn't know if that means it's gone for good.

Other useful methods that got removed last year: library.removeAlbum, library.removeArtist, library.removeTrack and tasteometer.compare.

Small observation, if you wanted to recreate the last.fm experience then these are probably the most important methods you'd need. But I'm not gonna do that, I promise! Just need the "library.removeScrobble" one please

I'm really missing library.removeScrobble for when I accidentally leave something playing and scrobble too much stuff.

Any chance of reinstating it?

Thank you!

This is a crucial method. Without it the API is seriously hamstrung.

Dear Last.fm, it'd be great if you could bring this one back, especially as the recent-ish website UI changes means it's harder to batch delete a load of mistakenly-scrobbled stuff (we've all done it!).

Earlier, you could click the X next to each track.

Now, for each one, you need to click the ellipsis, then select the bottom menu item of these six:

Go to artist page
Go to track page
Go to library artist page
Go to library track page
Set track as current obsession
Delete scrobble

Thank you!

We're probably going to be overhauling our public api early next year.  I'll put this method forward for consideration.

Thanks for taking the time to reply. Yep, 2 years later I still want this method. Here's to hoping it makes it into the overhaul.
