Charging your A/C

I was reading the stickie and it made me wonder.

One can go to Wal-Mart, buy a kit containing [censored] and use it to [censored] their car A/C system. There are tutorials in Youtube and elsewhere on the net on this subject and none of them is penalized and sued by EPA.
Yet, the only place that does not allow discussing it calls itself DoItYourself forum ...
Is this forum under influence of greedy pros who do not want folks to work on their A/C systems? Is it really better to leave these people without guidance (well, they can obtain this knowledge elsewhere, but that's not the point)?

This really isn't the place for a rant but I'm leaving it here.

The sticky at the top of this forum does not pertain to automotive A/C systems. If you want help with an automotive system..... post your thread in the correct auto forum.

DIY is a privately owned and run website that is open to the general public. The administrators have every right to make requests. The EPA has mandated that only a properly licensed and trained technician work with most refrigerants. Since we don't know who is licensed..... a blanket policy was instituted and we as the moderators were informed to not discuss charging methods (excluding automotive) in the open forums.
