destroy droplet when no money left

I think there should me an option to automatically destroy droplets when you don't have any money left. This should prevent you for debts.

    Providing that as an option could potentially be interesting, but I think many of our users would be very upset with that as a default behavior. We realize that sometimes people might be a bit late with their payments, and destroying an active droplet could mean taking down someone's business. That's not something we want to do lightly. In the mean time, you might be interested in the ability to set up billing alerts to notify you if you pass a certain billing threshold.

    Andrew, I didn't mean it as a function by default. Just as an extra option which could be enabled when a customer would like such a function. I'm sure there are more people who would like such a function.

    Or the option that you can set an date for destruction of a droplet.
