R.I.P. Thawte Web of Trust

Still saddened that the Thawte Web of Trust system is being shut down by the new owners, Verisign. Anyone surprised since Verisign offers a pay product that Thawte did for free? To make matters worse, I had become a Thawte notary a few months ago. It's crazy that while they have sent emails to everyone the Web of Trust website doesn't indicate anything about it going away. They are still happily letting people sign up? Huh?
