This is just childish. I mean, seriously, I had to set up an account to get on SPOTIFY. Am I supposed to cry like a baby because they asked for my contact info so I could use their (free) service? Wah! It's a conspiracy perpetrated by The Man to keep Homie down.

Reason: toning it down a little

Millers has the right to set their prices and business structure any way they choose - and you have the right not to do business with them if you choose.
did i ever say they didn't have a right to do whatever they want?

As in the case of Miller's pricing policies, everyone here will make their own decision.

I like millers. They are a good company and easy to deal with. When I told them i shot film they sent me a ton of mailers and a stack of pre filled developing/processing forms with my info and id number/barcode already on them. They have excellent prices, I think one of their selling points is that they haven't changed film processing prices in years (decade+) or so. I only wish they did slide films as they only offer c41 processing. They don't do black and white anymore but that's not a big deal if you do your own. Shipping to them is prepaid and you only pay for return shipping. Its a fast turn around and you can opt for rush too. All my color neg films go to them and I've always had good results.
I, too, find it weird that they don't post their prices, but I understand if they had "wholesale" prices for businesses with tax IDs, etc and different prices for the public.
When I signed up, they approved me without a url to my website, or any proof. I just have to send them some photos and I'm in the club.
Hey, I don't care to run through these hoops if I get a good product at a good price, it was just a little different than what is required now a days.

They sure got a lot of free publicity.
Yeah, I'm interested in trying them out.

The point lost in all of this, of course, is that there is still a terrific lab offering C-41 processing with overnight shipping. It's a great deal, and a great service for film shooters. Getting an account isn't complicated at all.
