2gb of free space + having to spam friends or due to lame tasks to get bonus free space is retarded.
Dropbox needs to get with the times.
I personally have not gamed the dropbox system to get more free space, but I know people go on Fiverr to have it done or linux users who are tech savvy put a distro on a flash drive and make fake email accounts and dropbox accounts to get free space. I'm sure most of the free accounts have done this since there are tutorials online on how to do it and they only need 10gb-20gb of space for their stuff.
Since dropbox claims they lose money when we give them money for low tier accounts under $9.99/month they might as well just give us more free space since they are unwilling to be REASONABLE with their customer base and refuse to offer the kind of accounts most of us want.

At least give us 15gb free to compare with Google Drive, One Drive, and Copy.com. Even better do better than them and give us 25gb or 50gb free to compare with Mega.co.nz.
We shouldn't have to spam our friends/colleagues to sign up with your service so we get free space (or, use a linux distro on a flash drive to create fake accounts at different created email address so we can get 16gb of more space free, or hire someone on Fiverr for $5 to boost our accounts up to 22gb of space by doing the same procedure). How about just giving us a decent amount of free space!!!!
