Tagged / forcing members to make purchases

Tagged is a social networking site but also created a form of entertainment called the Pets game which has been functional for three years or more. Many members play the Pets game and have devoted many many personal hours into the game. The game basically is a collection of virtual cash. Approximately one year ago - Tagged reset all player profiles to a very low value and removed all virtual monies that each member had played for. Immediately after the reset Tagged introduced a Gold program whereby you could purchase the virtual pets cash. Many members have spent thousands and thousands of dollars and it has been apparent that this has been a significant source of revenue for Tagged. The way the system is designed is that profiles are created and members who play the game try to compete to buy the profile each time you are successful you gain the virtual pets cash in your profile ''bank'' if you will.
Tagged has recently implemented an intentional delay in their system which is also a random delay meaning that the game is now not based on skill or level of experience but also has eliminated a members opportunity to gain the virtual pets cash by playing as we have traditionally done for over three years. Since this implementation of this delay - Tagged has introduced one gold offer after another each time increasing the amount of virtual cash you get for every real USD spent. The members of Tagged have repeatedly requested that the administration of Tagged return the game to it's original state instead of attempting to force members to purchase gold to advance in the game. It is obvious to the members that it is to their benefit to slow the game pattern down as much as possible thereby - again eliminating the opportunity to gain the virtual cash on your own - therefore you have no choice BUT to make a personal purchase. Returning the game to it's original state is the fair thing to do for the many members who have loyally supported this site but even more so it is felt that Tagged is attempting to gouge their members financially. They have nothing to loose by returning the game to its original state. We as members would like a response from Tagged and action be taken to return the game to the original state.

    Yes we all know this is true of this organization - they have totally implemented a strategy to force or push their members into making a gold purchase with personal financial funds. Tagged is gouging their members and making the game they created unfair to members of the site.
