The use of loopholes is discouraged, as is the use of the software beyond trial.
The trial helps you to find out which value this software has to you.
Whether you are trying out sublime-text or making full use of it is up to you to decide, but in all honesty if you are using ST as your daily text editor for this long or even for commercial purpose as a trial you are lying to yourself!
To me it looks like Sublime HQ is confident enough about their product that they don't need to put much effort in convincing you which value it has. Just use it and their price tag becomes insignificant, eventually.
The license must be payed for continued use of Sublime Text, regardless of trial, loopholes, ethic concerns or self-denying. If you cannot accept that don't use the software.
This question appears so many times in this forum because Sublime HQ makes it too easy for us to secretly use their software. It doesn't feel like deceiving them, and in fact we aren't. I have never seen even close so much concerns about it with software that took nearly as much effort to crack as it took to develop it.
