Yes, if kids are running free webhosting you are right. I am running free webhosting (not for a profit, or to catch new customers * it is difficult and you have no control *, I have other things and purposes, and for non-profit organizations). If your level of security and the way how you let people using your services is low than you are in trouble. In my case I am telling you a reality from let's say 20 free orders 19 are abusers, and of course I am rejecting this. Not with today technology abusers can't do like they did before, so they will look for free webhosting providers run by kids only. I think this is the problem why we have spam, abuser etc, because of those kids running free webhosting. I did free webhosting since 2003, but at that time was for other purposes like testing anti-fraud systems, programs etc.
All I can say it is interesting doing free webhosting, there is a lot of action....
