Seeing as people registering multiple accounts has been a problem here on Codeforces, I am wondering — what's preventing people from registering a second Topcoder account to qualify for "Have never competed in Rated Algorithm Contests" and win a free T-Shirt? AFAIK regular SRMs don't have any prizes, so this easy to abuse disparity seems surprising.

When I register to SRM I read that round is unrated, but it was rated.
