Stay Away from Services with No Business Model

I won't be using your service if you have no business model. I'm glad the product is free but I have no way of gauging your end game so I'm simply not interested no matter how cool it is.

Freedcamp inspired this post today. The service looks decent but I have no idea what their product is or how they can justify maintaining it. I'm sure that the devs needed a project management system and didn't want to pay for other options, but how do they plan on keeping up with support as the service gains popularity?

I wonder if they are trying to get noticed by someone larger and then get acquired? Are the users the product? Will they start injecting ads? Who knows so it's not safe to use the service.

There are much longer talks around this and Instagram from the B&B Podcast. I echo all of their issues with no business model, which is why I'm not going to even start to use your free service with no business model.
