Please, Please, Please
Do not add a free hosting section here. Although this thread is a bit old, i just wanted to add my opinion and why.
1. You will have a bunch of people signing up just so they can post their free hosting offers. Thiink of the time you will spend vetting each of these accounts before enabling posting rights.
2. We all know the false claims of unlimited whatever in hosting. Think about the free aspect of hosting, nothing is free in online or offline. There is always a catch. Free hosting claims are worse than unlimited hosting.
3. Once a free hosing company posts their offers, some will attempt to seed the rest of the forum threads. It would be a moderation nightmare and horrible experience for the other members.
4. Think about how challenging it is already to moderate advertising forums for paid hosting. Your moderators will never sleep if free hosters are given posting abilities for advertising.
Stone soup is flavored by its offerings of humanity.
