Well that reaction sounds a little hysterical, to me.  No one is banning anything about waterbearing, they're just making it an unofficial activity so that individual waterbearers are responsible for their own actions if anything happens at an event.

That's the way it was until a few years ago and no one died or was banned.

Personally, I welcome the decision.  It's a refreshing breeze from a BoD that usually wants to regulate our pants off.
