It's geared to the younger folk, the newbies and the clueless...hence the reason they're opening up new markets like E Sports and League of Legends.Coachbuster, a poster who usually has something interesting to say, noted:
Ultimately you want people walking in, seeing your product and spending loads of money because they've been seduced by stuff like the Cash Out facility...the old guard who know how to look after their funds are not wanted.
I will add (and not to rub the salt in ) but the protests are on the Horsey forum where the average punter is like around 75.Onlooker added that:

Betfair should be aware of the old sayings ...Some sweeping generalisations above, but I suspect there's more than a grain of truth in the general thrust of the comments.
'Look after what you already have'
'Don't bite the hand that feeds you'
In the latter case - Your 'bright young things', "Under 30s," will be mostly Backers -
The experienced OLDER Betfairians are the Major LAYERS on here - and thus SEED the Markets.
NO LAYERS > NO Liquidity > NO Market = NO BETFAIR.
