That's true, but the goal has nothing to do with the security issue.  
My point was not that you should have to get multiple accounts, but  
that the fact that you can get a free account means that completely  
blocking access from another grid doesn't actually provide any real  
security from that grid's users.

That's not what people's expectations are, though.
