World of Warcraft - the lost crusade

After spending several hours downloading World of Warcraft, installing it, upgrading it and looking for a trial key, I gave up on it once I hit the sign up form. I was a little annoyed that I had to give up my personal and credit card info just to sign up for a trial, but I got over it. When I was required to choose a payment option, even though I was reassured I would not get charged, I decided to stop there. It was one o'clock in the morning and I couldn't accept having to jump through so many hoops in order to try out World of Warcraft. And, if something really is free, then I should not be forced to choose a payment plan. That last part just made me feel I was being forced into a corner where I would end up having to pay, a tactic I associate with more notorious businesses.
