This situation is similar to the abuse of the free Ubuntu Linux CD offer (which, unsurprisingly, has since been withdrawn).  What is free to you, cost somebody else money.  People and companies give things away to promote a cause or idea; I'd urge anyone contemplating taking advantage of such promotions to a wasteful end to stop and consider how you feel about the cause in question -- if you think it's worthwhile, the least you can do is not hinder it by wasting their limited funds.

Totally agreeing. Well said.

RE: Free router
sending it to people who weren't lucky enough to order because they weren't in the US/Canada (viz. me :tongue:)?
