Sorry, but I have no sympathy with so-called "coders" who don't want to identify themselves or provide financial verification that they are legal adults with the means to pay for what they are using.

There are a lot of people in this industry who think everything should be free for their own personal use. Well, if something is given away, it is going to come with restrictions, and seeing as you're not paying for it, you have no right to complain about what KIND of restrictions the offer comes with. If you don't like the free offer, you can always pay for services to your liking.
