This is another message telling me it’s time to pass the baton on to someone else who has the time and energy to learn/do new stuff.
It’s not broken the way it is, but each “feature”, while personally providing no new enhancements for me, break what I have. Same thing happened with Gravity Forms.
Classic Editor, Classic Widgets, Disable Gutenberg are all patches to avoid these blocks. But from what I’m reading it’s just a matter of time before the block concept will be the norm.
