I find it tough to believe that enough developers were leveraging their 50 codes per update to skew the app store that completely. My guess is it is more a target on services that give out promo codes and expect reviews in exchange for payment or iTunes gift cards. Very unfortunate that a few bad apples have to spoil the bunch in that way.

I look forward to still giving out promo codes to fans but it will be tough to justify doing bigger giveaways like we have done in the past when instead we could focus the codes primarily on third-party site reviewers who can still make an impact with their review.
