Terminating an instance instead of deleting it. A pure terminology issue that a lot of newcomers have issues with.

+ instances not really being deleted when 'terminated', so there's unnecessary clutter on your dashboard.

They also still count against your usage limit, so workflow gets interrupted and you have to wait till they are actually deleted, but you can't really be sure when that happens.

So have a coffee, check back, nope not gone. Get another one, nope not gone.
