Because they are selfish and want shit for free. You are using it EXACTLY how it is intended.

No, I think they just want people to be able to use their old games they no longer have any use for. It's not an unreasonable expectation. I would happily deauthorize games from my account permanently or enter in some sort of weird locking share mechanism to do it because there are many I don't enjoy or didn't play much that I think others would get some use out of.

You want stuff for free too apparently:

5. You can manipulate the system - family share can be not in the same house, you just have to log into each other's machine, authorize machine, then log out. works nicely to do this.
6. It is nice, cause those I share with and vice versa - I try not to double up purchases.

Or maybe you're divoced and your child(ren) are two hours away. Or maybe Johnny is spending the summer at G'ma's house.
