Now that the segments are behind a paywall, maybe they'll be able to revisit will better success. There does seem to be more levels of interest than "casual" and "OMG, I need my power curve and fitness and freshness, etc, etc" so leveraging that middle ground could be good, but I have a feeling that doing that any time soon would just provoke more ire. Maybe over the winter.
it's already winter. oh you mean summertime at the end of the year.
