A user in the Hebrew Wikipedia pointed out to me that it's uncomfortable to her that after removing a page from the watchlist it is still displayed there. It is gone after refreshing the watchlist, but she says that for her it would make more sense if it disappeared immediately.

This is a design question more than a bug, so I'm asking here: what do the designers think?

I can see pros and cons in both ways and I wonder how was the current behavior decided: design and user testing or only the developers' intuition?

Thank you!
