Can we do the same for Classic?
I'm a nerd.
I'm the one in the museum ignoring the display and reading
I want text, easily accessible, clearly laid out, and plenty of it.
I'll pay to keep the UI I know and love.
The Beta has none of those characteristics.
The Beta site is repellent, unusable, and unneeded.
I won't use it,
and if ``Classic'' goes away,
I won't visit/.,
and it'll be a pity.
How much do you actually receive in revenue for each user?
I suspect I'll match it to keep the status quo.
Ask us what it's worth to us.
I'd certainly pay $1/month, and would think about $5/month.
I bet that I'm not alone.

I find it extremely interesting that Appendix E of that report does not discuss the NSA's role (or not) in twiddling with Dual EC DRBG. It's the only crypto component that they've been explicitly called out on, and it's not discussed.
