What they actually did was decide to spend their time working on what they want to work.
And their users saw it, (many) decided it was bad, and therefore switched (or whined :))
If the goal of the GNOME developers is to spend their time working on what they enjoy, they have apparently succeeded admirably. If their goal is to have a happy user base, that success is decidedly mixed.
Now I am completely fine with developers having fun with doing whatever they want and not caring about a happy user base. But if that's the goal of GNOME developers, they should at least state that as their policy up front in order to be fair to would-be GNOME users.
