As Nintendo clarifies the Swapnote situation to 3DS owners via email, a petition has been created to bring it back.
Nintendo isn't doing any good by getting rid of Swapnote. It's not like kids don't have the internet or phones to send crudely drawn pictures of boobs and dicks to each other (and I shudder thinking about Snap Chat), so why punish all the people who legitimately enjoyed using the app for something that's potentially bad that can be done EVERYWHERE else?
I don't disagree with your argument. I think the broader issue is whether they used that as an excuse to re-purpose those servers to Miiverse and simply lied about it.
