Lol. Actually, on that note, I play The Sims 3 quite alot, and there was a bug in it, which actually turned out to be an "unexpected feature" When EA fixed it, there was uproar, because people wanted it back.
I play the Sims 3, too much. What was it that caused the uproar? i must have been busy playing
When Ambitions came out, Repairmen would fix salvaged items (from the junkyard) and they weren't supposed to be able to, EA fixed this, and people kicked off.

Eh, the Store stuff is over rated, EA don't even bother to flag it properly. That's not too bad if it's User made stuff, because it's easily fixed with S3PE, and as it's free anyway you can't really complain.

When It's EA though, If i'm going to pay for it, I expect them to at least be able to flag a pair of flippers as "Swimwear only." Isn't that what I'm paying them for? The hassle of Decompiling the Sims3pack into an editable form, figuring out what the hell the Instance ID is (because EA also don't bother giving their packages sensible names) and then fixing it is really not worth it, and I shouldn't have to anyway.

Of course not everyone is comfortable poking around game files, (although its not difficult) as a modder I have that advantage, so most people just put up with it.

Not to mention that 80-90% of the store stuff is just recolours, which anyone can do with Create a Style, at least the community released stuff is actually new Meshes.
