Flotrack took something that would have been free and decided to make people pay a ridiculous price for it without making the product any better.
I see. We are using the word "free" in two different ways.
You are using free to mean that you didn't have to pay to obtain the product; it was given to you by Flotrack as a gift.
However, the production of that gift was never "free" to Flowtrack. Those people invested time and money. They paid in order to produce the product; then, they chose to make the product a gift to you. Actually people invested actual time and money to make something; in this sense, it was never "free."
The word "free" can be very tricky if you don't pay close attention to exactly how it is being used.
Also, Flotrack doesn't "make you pay" for their product. You can choose not to obtain the product.
Finally, when Flotrack goes out of business, you lose the option of obtaining this product. I'm not sure how that will be a great day for anyone.
