I really appreciate someone discovering the web archive from 2002! However, I disagree with your reading of the conditions under which you obtained the Member account. On the FAQ page you can see the Terms of Service as #11:
http://web.archive.org/web/200212160...l#TermsSummary
You end up with this full TOS:

So I agree that you saw the "lifetime" Member offer in 2002. But that account type won't be available later this year, and Fastmail has chosen to terminate your account.
