What is 30% of nothing? They are willing to put up your app absolutely freely, if you like, so long as you don't charge for it. That's pretty generous. What they actually owe anyone in terms of what they allow is precisely jack diddly squat. It's their basketball hoop, their garage, and their basketball. Don't like the rules? Go to the next door neighbor's garage and play with him. 

Shouldn't have any control at all over what people put on their servers? Really?? You need to think again. This is not Communist China, nor the Soviet Union. (At least not yet.) If they decide not to post your app because they don't like the color of your hair, why isn't it their right to do so? IT'S THEIR SERVERS!
