There's a big difference between being gung-ho on new-style classes and
telling people to stop using old-style classes.  There's also a big
difference between saying, "I never use classic classes," and, "You
should avoid classic classes."  I'll admit that Alex posts enough that I
don't read everything he says, but I don't recall him going as far as you
do -- and I'd be rather shocked if he did because he almost always
appropriately qualifies his advice.
