People do think it's cool, a lot of players have asked to see old content re-tuned to be a challenge for their level 80 mains, and Blizzard is actually trying to cater to people who loved this fight when it was the big endgame thing by bringing it back. I understand your disappointment, but you don't have a "right" to a static game world in an MMO, especially when you're choosing to focus on outdated content. I can cap my EXP at 70 and spend as long as I like in Outland, which happens to be my favorite part of the game, but if two expansion packs from now Blizzard comes back and completely revamps Outland to be a major hub for space travel between a kazillion worlds, tough cookies for me. Playing outside the box is fun, and cool, but you've got to accept the risk that the game world will evolve in a way that serves the majority of the player base. Blizzard designs the game with the assumption that the majority of players will buy their new content. They -want- people to buy their new content. Not only because it's profit for them, but because they worked hard on the expansion packs and want to move the story forward. If they have a fun new design for a particular dungeon or zone in the old world, it makes more sense from their perspective to go ahead with it because they want to encourage people to move forward. There's really nothing shady about that.
