I got the feeling that there were some "issues" there that I didn't
want to get into. Maybe some anti-Red Hat feelings.

I'd have to lecture myself, if so. They have every right to block
anyone they want to. While their attitude was really irritating, they
have a right to that, too.
I have an equal right to tell everyone not to use their service and I'm
actually pretty sure that they would agree with that.
Not that I didn't start and discard several indignant responses to the
their email, of course. :-)
It's actually nice to finally be able to say "Don't use it!" as I vowed
I'd do if the issue ever came up.
