Competitive overclocking is an income. People actually make a lot of money doing it in tournaments, in hwbot competitions, local competitions, and so on.
So if before the ban, if one person will get a 5-6% better score because he used this bug, he might win a competition and earn some money / items by exploiting it.
This is a pretty big issue. Overclocking is not just posting ego numbers on the web. Its part of it, but not just.
