Forum staff might not have any say in these things but have a backbone and say no to these things, go leave if something is so against your views, as this price increase is with every player so far. You guys are literally acting like puppets, just spewing out every word whispered in your ears by HQ. You keep saying that this will be added to your weekly report, nobody gives a if it is or isn't, because by definition weekly reports happen every week yet we have seen zero change for multiple months. In fact, things have gotten worse. This is proof enough that your weekly reports do/mean jack.
Just because you're a CM doesn't mean you don't have a view, you're not robots. Why not actually join in with the outrage rather than sticking up for blatant balls up from HQ.
