    Greetings everyone.
    I am a little dissapointed with the community with this limitation of not letting us Opt-in on Freebies section only if you are the developer or creator of what you are giving away.
    Many of us need this to just know who is interested on what you are giving away. BHW has many leechers that doesnt even share or contribute with community, at least we the creators of the freebie could take a name and email to let know who are them.
    Why is this against rules?

    Harvesting information can be sold and so It's almost the same as selling. If you require information, you aren't offering a free service, the same as Google, Facebook, Twitter and most online services.
    If you think something is free online, you are usually the currency.

    Using people's information as currency is not going to be a way we allow people to circumvent the rules, sorry.
