FWIW, some people weren't really ready for the arrogance of Apple deciding you really really really wanted this album. Those are people who clearly haven't been paying attention. As long as Apple is calling the shots, they know better than you, and they can prove it.
As to the "auto download not the default" setting, sure, the user had to switch it. If they were trusting enough to assume that THEY would be the ones who decided what music is in their own collection, that's a legitimate convenience decision. The mistake was in naively they controlled their music selection. I imagine they won't make that mistake again.
I, for one, welcome this event. Apple's customers need to be reminded of who's in charge. That way they can take the appropriate defensive measure when welcoming our fruit-themed entertainment overlords.
