I love how they categorize paying $100 per year as, "freeloading". They just see Basecamp as just small enough to bully, yet big enough to juice for lots of money. 30% is crazy too. Especially when you consider how small of a cut most payment processers.
Basecamp is a 57 employees company that makes probably north of $10 millions a year. For them $100/year is the non edible shell part of one peanut. Even if you count 1 account for each employee. That's a rounding error on a rounding error. So, yes totally freeloading.
