I don't think anyone is arguing that change wasn't needed. I saw the bandwidth monitor in WAU and did wonder how many people used WAU. I just wish the transition was either 2-3 months ago or done gradually over time.
Taking aay WAU and replacing it with Curse (in it's current state) was like removing heroin from addicts and replacing it with cold turkey. Of course people will get used to the new system, but not without a whole load of bitching.
I'm sure people would have been relatively happy to move over to the curseforge entity if the updater/forum issues had been properly tested with a large number of people, eg run the old and new system side by side, or phased implementation.
