I agree with Xenopulse.
Many are overreacting. Few realize that people have actually bought second copies of GW just for more slots.
Those willing to pay get their needed slots. Those that aren't, well, they're not being forced; ANet wants people to clear out their inventories to promote trade, rather than keeping 'cool' items to themselves.
But then again, it's not that big of a surprise; i mean, no monthly fee, and people are whining about paying just a tad bit more than the typical Pay-to-Play MMO? Digusting.
