"It resolved an exploit"
If that were the case, why was this not "fixed" months/years ago? The system has been set up this way since launched, and you are just now getting to fixing such "exploits" ? You've got to have known that the exploit existed before now.
Other MMOs are quickly "hotfixed" when exploits of a certain magnitude are detected. So either this wasn't an exploit, or it was deemed "acceptable" until now.
