When people ask
and there is a market for it, what is your problem about it?

You ruined your own life by making a video game a priority over your kids.

So a good 80% of the content before Cata came out really was never seen again.
The original progress time was there in order to slow people down, since blizzard needed time to make and release their raids and dungeons.
If people like today, could reach max level and clear all dungeons within a month or so, people will just reduce their subscription to when something new comes out, and leave a month later.
By making everything slow, grindy, but also interesting, it kept people in the game, and small achievements even to get your first mount, a great feat, let alone getting the higher speed mounts.
Once higher levels and more expansions came to be, there was no reason to intentionally force you to grind for months into 1-60 when you just want to level a new character to join your friends within a couple of weeks.
People who ere intersected in just the classic, were interested in the slow down, in the community over content.
