Can we stop declaring something free, when you actually need to give away your email address, name and company name? This is not free, this is conditional. Thanks.

@sheogorath Exactly. At work this week, I had to edit a CAD model of a component we use because we changed vendors and dimensions changed. My boss told me to get the full 3D CAD model "for free" from the vendor's website. Yeah right, I would've had to register, provide my full name, email address, postal code and phone number. I briefly thought about providing fake info. F*ck that. With a digital caliper I took measurements from a part, and edited our existing CAD model accordingly.

Next time: Enter boss's "full name, email address, postal code and phone number." :-)
