Argumentation on the basis of a tu quoque fallacy doesn't really add
much to the dicussion. Depreciating potentialy dangerous and definitely
obsolete protocols does not make you a hypocrite.

TLS 1.0 is genuinely hard to support at this point. Doing  so limits the
tooling you can use, It limits the CDNs that you can use. It forces you
to use obsolete codes bases.
