Want to Publish Paper : Beware of Citation Cartel II

Every year when Thomson Reuter announce Journal Citation Reports®, it always comes with the same old debate of usefulness of impact factor of scientific journals. People argue with several evidence in their favor but this is a never ending debate like who comes first - egg or hen. Last year I discussed about Citation Cartel and how they are affect the faith of small fry like me. After release of journal impact factor 2013, nature breaks a story of Brazilian publishers who are misusing the citation to increase the impact of their own journal. May be Thomson Reuter will remove
the name of those journals from their impact factor list but my concern is the faith of those people who has been publishing in these journals and who are not the part of these misdeeds. We generally choose the journal on the basis of their impact factors and suitability of its scope. So if some one choose these journal on the basis of their impact factor and after publishing their papers in May they found in June (when Thomson Reuter generally release the impact factor list every year ) that now its impact factor is zero then what is the options for authors? Why they should suffers for others misdeed? 
However, this is new list of member of citation offenders. So beware of these citation cartels
