I have seen no evidence that by not adding content they have improved the state of the game. So any suggestion they should focus on bugs over content would likely be seen as a means to move the 2 of the 3 remaining devs to Anthem and see how long subscribers would go with the occasional bug fix.
DONT GIVE EA IDEAS LIKE THAT!!!!!!!

They have enough horrible greed-based ideas without your help.

No. I'm already paying them to fix bugs. It's called a subscription. We have enormous content droughts they could use to fix the hundreds of problems this game has, but instead they put all their devs onto the Anthem team and ignore all the bugs while dripfeeding us tiny bits of content every 6 months or so. Why would I be willing to pay them the same amount of money for them to do even LESS?

Sounds like an April Fool’s Day flash sale...where what you actually get is a killik companion with a tool belt.

Longtime players might appreciate this, but longtime players continue to sub regardless, so their opinion is mostly irrelevant [sorry]. Casuals want content, and in general, they get it, it's just years old in most cases. I also think that some players may say they want this as long as it's a hypothetical, but if BW were to really say that the Spring Roadmap will be bug fixes and no content, most players would mutiny.

We've had years without bug fixes (unless they're CM related, occasionally pvp and operations also get something) and many months without any new kind of content time and again, so while people would be upset being told upfront about another content-free period, they'd probably also appreciate finally seeing bug fixes. I'm not sure it would even out, but it probably wouldn't upset everyone.
What you get from a referral link: a box of junk and one single server transfer token.

What the other person gets: 500 cartel coins, 100 more each month you stay subscribed, a speeder bike and a droid vanity pet.

Bugs do impact everyday gaming experience, and having them constantly in your face is more annoying or even frustrating than not having new content. (experiencing which will also be affected by old bugs and, most likely, new ones.)

Yes I would pay for them to bug fix (properly), fix the desync problems in pvp and fix the gearing RNG so we can get the right gear for the right class. They would also need to allow mods and enhancments in the new gear to be gear slot unlocked.
That would keep me paying my subs for another 3 months. Especially the gearing part.
