Well of course we are in the same kind of situation.
I am using a laptop to connect to 8 machines, none of which run a OS server, on a home network (with no TV outgoing/incomming network connections), running BOINC for absolutely no gain.
And yet now we are seeing the dreaded 'commerical usage' notice.
I guess what is really sad is that many people including ourselves value this great product, and indeed would probably pay a small amount to use it - even though we are using it for personal stuff - however as of yet TV just instead ignore this key market and instead just offer subscriptions catering to business who of course can pay these upgrade amounts.
Even other **Third Party Product** providers are now realising this gap in the market, and when you leave/uninstall the personal version, they offer you a middle tier (non-public) product so you can continue, personally, but in a way that they gain money (normallly around $100/yr).
Hopefully TV will take a look at this situation, and instead of continuing with this existing path which is of course generating negative PR, instead offer a solution for those who are using TV personally, but for whatever reason is being flagged as commerical - as a solution from both sides. both ourselves, and of course TV.
Its obviously better to earn something from an existing user, than nothing from one who just left (and is highly frustrated and sharing their negative experience of TV across social media and other platforms).
