A co-worker gave it to me, must be about 5 years ago, and it was not new then (he'd recently broken up, and taken the graphics card he'd bought for his partners computer with him, didn't have a use for it, so it wasn't new then). I figure it has probably run its course.
I checked last night -- Free to play (even on existing accounts) can’t use mailboxes, and I’m pretty sure that means they also can’t take part in trades. Which means no giving them gold, which means them not buying anything that costs more than a few copper. Sigh.
