I posted that same URL above and have been referring to that same paragraph in all of my replies as well. I read it a bit differently than you do. Is there anybody with any corroborating evidence of having been turned down for MSD lifetime because the other boxes on the account were also MSD lifetime (even if they've dialed in within 180 days)? The reason I ask is that I've never used the code you mention on any of my boxes and yet I continue to receive MSD pricing on lifetime subscriptions. From my experience, the code that you assert is required, does not actually seem to be required. And, with respect to your explanation, even if all of your boxes were purchased with the code and all of them qualify, that does not prove that the code is required for qualifying. At best it indicates that the code is compatible with them qualifying, but the actual sufficiency requirement may be unrelated. I believe, from reading those terms, and from my own experience, that having a lifetime subscription (on an active box) would be sufficient and the last line of the terms governs their qualification - mentioning that the only condition is that they must have dialed in within 180 days and mentioning no condition based on how you obtained the lifetime subscription.
