This is exactly right.
When they implemented GA seating last year, I wasn't happy but I eventually came to the conclusion that I'd be fine with sitting a few rows behind the pit in the seats. That's not what happened.
Here's the Camden seating chart: http://www.dim.com/~godbey/camdenseating.gif
For shows at Camden, I was between rows 4 and 6 in the pit, just off center, for pretty much every seniority night. So, my thought was that I would end up in Section 202, between rows D and G. Instead, I got Section 100, Row J, 10 seats off the outside wall (i.e. couldn't see about a fifth of the stage on Jeff's side). Luckily I was able to find better seats and sell those last minute, but going from 15 feet from the stage to obstructed view is fucking bullshit.
It's only going to get worse now that some great seats will only go to those will to pay premium prices.
