So I created a fly.to address with the url fly.to/ab so my family members could get to a private photo album that they could all post to and such.
I just received an email saying the following:
Dear fly.to member, Our content administrators have suspended your account. They had the following comments to make regarding the suspension: no password protected sites The following redirects have been suspended: fly.to/ab
Sort of funny, I searched their terms page, and nowhere can I find any statement of password protected sites…
I mean, I didn’t even realize they would not do a DNS redirection, but instead a web frame redirection displaying a fucking ad on the top unless you close it manually. No thanks, I was not going to use it after that anyway.
At the time of this post, their FAQ page: http://www.fly.to/faq.shtml does not state anything about linking to a password protected site.

Hm funny, okay, searching the Terms page. Nothing relating to directions to password protected sites. In fact, the only thing searching for password on this page is the following:
6. MODIFICATIONS TO YOUR ACCOUNT.

(blah blah blah)
Next time, morons, check your own pages before you send me an email saying I didn’t follow your NON-EXISTENT RULES.
Took screen shots, sorry they are PNG images, since well, if I copied the text you might think I changed it.
