Yury Tarasievich says:
"I think, word "classic" here would be misleading. This qualifier of the
aforementioned orthography is self-awarded and is inaccurate by any definition,
as both qualifier and orthography aren't used or recognized as such by anybody
excepting rather minor minority."
I wouldn't like to start the old discussion with Mr Tarasevich who has some
unexplained repugnance for that other orthography and has been the only one to
fight it vehemently in all relevant net discussions.
However, I want to draw your attention to an inaccuracy in his comment - upon
which all his argumentation is built:
Those who follow that "other" orthography are in slight MAJORITY (not in minor
minority) on the Net. You can easily prove it - just google any pair of words
spelled differently in the two orthographies.
