> I'm not saying this is a bad thing

Why not? It's deliberately misleading, no?

No, it’s not. The audience is meant to understand “if this isn’t specifically the thing you’re building to use, you won’t have to worry about it.”

That’s useful to me so I can just not worry about that thing.

Except that you do still have to worry, because it is metered, they're just being coy about the precise figures, and they're really just outright lying to you by using the word 'unmetered'.

Am I missing something? I'm not seeing another side to this. Secret fair-use rules are exactly as dishonest as when the telcos lie about 'unlimited' data plans, no?
