Just signed in to the Embarcadero Developer Network and got this:

I think it's BS, but what craziness is forcing companies like Embarcadero to hold developers to these very high standards?
Also, what is "Embarcadero Software"? Does that mean I can't put a benign videogame on a website that may have a runtime that might be downloaded by a Iranian who love scrabble. Or does "Embarcadero Software" refer to anything I develop using Delphi.
