    We actually started off with a trial tier, it wasn't a full free to use tier, but it initially lasted a week. Unfortunately we saw a tremendous amount of abuse and the only way to provide that is to lock down the droplets so much that it actually harms the overall user experience.

    Reluctantly we had to remove that feature as a result.
