Can no longer buy back your status if you are short on nights.

Am I the only one that is upset about this?  In years past, if you were short on nights you could keep your status by giving them 25,000 points.  No longer.  I just found that out today and am pretty upset.  I was only Gold but with Gold you get automatic upgrades AND lounge access.  It makes a huge difference.  If you travel a lot with your job, then this doesn't really affect you because you probably have no problem maintaining your status.  To be a faithful 30 years member to Marriott is disappointing.....
