You're post is full of crap. You call them out for lying about saying that they will not split the user-base or remove features, yet you can't even give one example of this. And guess what, you pretty much are worthless to them.
Everything they told us about how they're going to handle this was a flat-out lie.
Oh we're not going to split the userbase or remove features, but here's a shiny THIS GUY IS PAYING US under his avatar, and also, we have a video telling you how being a free user makes you WORTHLESS TO US.
Oh and you're going to get better interaction with the staff, and a timely bombcast.
BUT other than that, EVERYBODY IS EQUAL.
