The reference was to those looking for a "free" ISP, "There ain't no such
thing as a free lunch."

It was first popularized in an old Heinlein book, but had been around before
that. At one time, the local branch of the Libertarian Party adopted it as a
political slogan. [I note two of the four-letter-words that are running for
Pres. are frantically competing to demonstrate that each offers the most
free lunches.]
