You're assuming that the people willing to spend more money aren't doing this as well?
What's the difference between having more disposable cash versus having more free time? What's the difference between paying more money for superficial customization versus paying more money for multiple accounts, or a better computer, faster internet connection, farmed gold, or a myraid of other advantages that some players might have over others.
Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with this decision...but I also don't think it's any more unfair or skewed than pretty much every reward system in any multiplayer game.
