This is one item most people tend to miss using free/open services... the T&Cs are extremely one-sided. When you pay for your ISP/mail server, doesn't matter how much, you get a contractual obligation and all sorts of legal avenues and customer protection laws come to play.

Free/open services only really have bad PR as leverage against them... which doesn't help the lone individual who's had his account unilaterally closed without recourse.
