    I've seen some like those before. I generally close the ticket/delete the e-mails.

    Along with those many times I have seen younger people without a creditcard or paypal account asking for the same thing. It can be frustrating at times but being professional now could help as sometimes they will spread the word about you to others later on.

    I got this one yesterday. I wish they would find a free host instead of bothering people who are trying to run a legit business.

    I'm sure there are a few hosts here that cost $1/month i don't think they will lose too much helping a poor guy have a little space free.

    Probably not Only people I will give free space to would be local churches or non profit groups, not someone emailing me for space.

    Agreed. I currently host a small NPO for free that wouldn't otherwise have the extra expenses to spend on web hosting.
