Yes, let's be clear, it's not a 30 day trial.  It's a 30 day delay.  Our entire ruleset is free and open to use, just 30 days behind.  Subscription gives you access to the rules the day they are released.  Subscribers also get the 15 minute delay lifted.

We have the 15 minute delay in place, as there are some people who like to download the entire ruleset every 5 seconds.
