I'm all for sharing, but in this case it had a negative result. Next time no one talks. ;)
I'm skeptical of any claims that DNNA actually gives a cr@p about this stuff, frankly. They have other things to worry about -- there is no litigation on this matter, nor any settlements with which to comply that would motivate them to make this change.
And if they did care about the miniscule portion of their 55xx users who took advantage of this, it would be much easier and effective to send out a pause ad or some other notice to these users. This would also cover their legal butt alot more effectively than pushing the new software (which utimately will also be cracked anyway).
Don't let's get parnoid. Even if the new software forces us to change our approach, I'm willing to bet the price of a 5040 that it had very little to do with the hacks discussed here, and was instead an inadvertent change.
