If this were true the fee would go down then the reward becomes <10 AE … which is not really gonna happen.
But can it move to lower fees? Because I agree if and when there is a spam attack the fees need to go up, but what if there is never a spam attack? Is really a preemptive strike the best solution?
This sounds a lot like: Oh, we could have to severe an arm if it becomes gangrened, so let’s cut it right now! But hey, the arm is not even sick, are you sure? YES! Of course I am sure, let’s cut it! -_-
