But it is possible to freeload on... publicly served data? You're not making any sense.

I request, they serve. I can do whatever I want with their data on my machine. There's not even a contract here.

"Unspoken understanding" in the context of a multi-million dollar faceless corporation. That actually made me chuckle. They're the first ones to break the unspoken understanding of paying proper taxes for example and I'm supposed to let them infest my machine with bullshit? GTFO.

Go and make me sign a contract or don't serve your shit freely. Easy.

I have no idea WTF you are talking about. A closed TCP port emits an RST. It even says so in the very link you posted:

"Receipt of a SYN message on a port where there is no process listening for connections."

Next time you try to be a smart-ass, get your facts straight. Idiot.

If you don't have time to do it right, where are you going to find the time to do it over?
