Blocking Flash after EOL is unfair

There are older games that use Flash and will not be "modernized". These games are important to some people, including myself. Blocking Flash from ever being used after EOL is unfair to us. Please just do something like adding a warning about how using the un-supported Flash is unsafe and a "continue at your own risk" button, or something similar.

Too late to be making that point, the final update shipped a week ago. Apparently.

Flash content developers had 3 years to prepare for this.  If they haven't done it by now, it's unlikely they ever will.

Suggest you find other interests that don't rely on Flash Player.  There are plenty of other games available that use HTML5 & JavaScript instead of Flash.  When all the dust settles, you'll probably never miss Flash.
