I couldnt find a more appropriate and/or semi active thread to ask this question but please forgive me if it is somewhat misplaced.
I've been under the assumption that the free trial would NOT automatically renew and would require no effort on my end to keep from being billed. This morning, I received an email stating that my free trial will be ending 1/5/12 and came across as a courtesy email to inform that the onus is on me to cancel the account before being automatically renewed with 'my current SE acct management system settings'.
Does the left hand not know what the right hand is doing? Yoshi himself has said clearly this would not be the case. However, this email was pretty clear in and of itself that it was my responsibility to cancel.
Does anyone have more concrete details?
(Its precisely this type of nonsense that makes this company come off as absolutely incompetent at best and downright deceitful at worst. The ZAM boards and word of mouth have become their free CS I reckon...)
