The problem with flagging accounts that use the same VPS service is multi-fold:
1. The firm can use this as justification for banning any trader that they do not like, without taking on too much negative PR, by claiming 3rd-party involvement.
2. Without these measures, traders could use 3rd-party services to trade for them via VPS and make the claim that they are trading for themselves.
3. Traders that are blacklisted or from blocked countries could pay people to open accounts for them and trade via VPS.
4. Legitimate traders that understand the value of (or have a need for) trading via VPS (or cloud-based trade copier?) are at risk of getting flagged without doing anything wrong.
It seems that TFF has shown on multiple occasions what their priorities truly are, and they seem to be standing firm on that. Traders should be warned and tread cautiously.
