I think the real point is, no one likes to pay more for things. This has been the way it was for a year, people have gotten used to it and theer is no legitimate reason to suddenly fix this "bug".
Does anyone truely want to ever pay more for the same thing? In a game or in real life?
It would seem the people who have been paying higher costs would disagree with you that this isn't a legitimate bug. Are we to just say "well, sucks to be you, been this way for a year trollololol."
And the priceless part is you actually included that line that I bolded, while people were already paying more for the same thing.
