I've never deposited on the site or played in any real money games, they could easily allow me to delete my account or switch the affiliate I am signed up to without costing them anything.
They use rakeback to help recruit people to their site. You already know about their site so they have no incentive to offer you rakeback. Giving you rakeback definitely does cost them money, where do you think you'd get the money from?
Basically you feel sorry for yourself and think you're entitled to this money. You are not entitled to it, it's their choice to offer you the rakeback or not and they've decided not to. You have the choice to not play but if you play you agree to their terms which include not doing any of the things you are talking about doing. You agreed to the terms not to do any of this. It's up to you whether you want to do it, but just know it's illegal, you're breaking the rules. You can try to kid yourself all you want, but you are stealing, plain and simple. If this is ok with you, go ahead, you probably won't even get caught, but to lie to yourself about being entitled to something you clearly aren't and stealing to rectify the situation is what it is. If you're going to lie to full tilt and break the agreement, at least don't lie to yourself.
