Fewer players is not the answer, because it needs more opinions against this idea. Fewer players = fewer opposite opinions. Log in but do nothing. Just sit there (it's hard I know, but there is no other way to make the devs think about it). Fight back!
How does this hurt turbines bottom line with money or how does it show a decrease in log ons to show that people are leaving. It has zero chance to be noticed by the powers that be and effecting things. Real sit ins disrupt day to day operations of a location and get their notice that way.
