I think it is a very nice gesture to offer anything up as a giveaway. I have absolutely no problem giving them free advertisement. I hope to hear from them on the 2nd! I also hope the rest of the haters out there don't sign up... makes my odds get better. It absolutely blows me away that people are complaining about a company for giving things away for free. Keep it up and there won't be any more giveaways on THF.
You should give some serious thought to thanking your lucky stars your from Texas.
