No matter what happens I am glad I bought a lifetime subscription for me it was well worth the money.

We're testing with Gold-level accounts (specified in the blog). So everything Dilithium-related that's a factor for Silvers will also be a factor for Gold accounts. There's nothing free about a $15/mo subscription.
