jQuery bug report form encourages use of non-free tools on remote servers

Description

jQuery is a free tool, and that's an important part of its success. But jsFiddle is decidedly non-free, and this form that I'm on appears to be encouraging its use.

I'm sure everyone involved in this project would prefer to avoid reliance on non-free tools, so why not start a project to build a free version of jsFiddle? That would certainly be a useful thing to do, and would probably take relatively little effort.

Thanks for your contribution!

I recommend filing this ticket with your new "Free jsFiddle" project, on its bug tracker. This tracker is for bugs in the jQuery source code.

It's certainly free as in no cost. If you have a dispute with their terms, ask jsFiddle to change and perhaps they might. We're glad to be able to use them.

Sounds good, although it's not part of the charter for our project. If you're volunteering or know someone who can do the work, we'll gladly provide feedback though. jsFiddle isn't perfect, but it's there.

What about jsbin (source)? What specifically are you looking for?
