Sadly you are falling into the most common rut of most people. Waiving evidence that supports your case in peoples faces while burying and ignoring evidence that refutes it. This "nerf" will only chase away those who were most likely going to leave anyway. They are already dissatisfied with the game and just needed a little push. The new players will not know a different play style, so there will be no problem there. All this adds up to is a bunch of people angry that their little "cheat" was discovered and shut down. Too bad.
Life and this game goes on...
If this was true....then this game going f2p would've never happened.
It's called lack of quality control....maybe some day .........whatever.
