Why was product status changed to active?

I was dismayed to find out that Shopify had taken all hidden/inactive/unpublished products in my shop to a new "active" status. Why was this change made? Now I have to go through every single product to determine what was meant to be unpublished. What a disaster! I've read on the forum about the opposite--shop owners saying that their default is draft status. Well, my default is active and I don't like it. I liked the way it was before--add a product and select whether I want it published or not. Why would Shopify choose to do this. Products in my store were unpublished for a reason.
