I get that this has been discussed ad infinitum, what I don’t get is that I read hundreds of posts with very dissatisfied users begging WP to stop screwing with the old pages and yet they removed the link anyway. I never saw a single post in favor of this. So the question is, why doesn’t WordPress give a flying crap about passionate, well-thought out, painstakingly detailed user input? It makes me angry every time I log in.
The blog I need help with is gointothelight.wordpress.com.
Staff are developing a new editor and we a new stats page too. Luckily, they did not choose to eliminate the classic editor or the old stats pages.
You cannot deactivate the new Beep Beep Boop editor but you do not have to use it. For locating the ways and means of accessing the legacy or classic pages for creating posts, editing posts, and for viewing stats see here > Navigating the Classic WordPress.COM interface http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2015/04/05/navigating-the-classic-wordpress-com-interface/
On the dashboard of your own blog at
Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New
To create posts in the classic editor for you that link is http://theradiocrytic.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php
If you have cookies enabled on your browser your preference will be saved unless or until your clear your cookies, and it will take you to the classic editor automatically every time you create a new post via the drop-down menu in the black admin bar or edit a post via the edit button on the blog itself.

The Classic Editor will continue to exist in wp-admin. We know some users prefer to use this editor, so we want you to have access to it, instead of phasing it out with the new version of the Dashboard. However, a link to the Classic Editor will not return to the New Editor. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/when-editing-an-old-post-how-do-i-switch-to-the-classic-editor?replies=5
