I've run a volunteer/free hosting service since 1997 or so - it never

when you ask them to pony up a little monthly support its like you
killed their puppy. I just term people who are more of a hassle then
they are worth.
I'm not complaining, but I would point out that if these free brokers
are the public face of IPv6 for many hobbyists (and much of the various
software run on/over the internet is written by volunteers, and/or given
away for free), we aren't going to get there. The big deafening silence
from SIXXS is really unfortunate in that it does actively affect my
opinion of IPv6, my willingness to spend time implementing it, pestering
my upstream about it, or having my business give a damn about it. Yes I
know they're volunteers, but how much does that matter?
This same silence you mention is also my personal experience.
I work on a open source firewall project in my spare time and found the
issue annoying, as such I've decided to forgot Sixxs (dynamic) tunnel
support and recommend the free Hurricane Electric tunnelbroker instead.
I can spend my time better in getting OpenVPN working with IPv6 then
waiting to accumulate kredits(tm).
