Is it abuse to create and destroy Linodes on the fly?

I like to set up game servers when I play with friends, but they don't need to be online when we aren't playing. I set up a script to automatically set it up for our game session, and once we are done, it deletes the Linode automatically.

This at most (not often) happens once a day, but is this something that I could get in trouble for? I have other Linodes running 24/7, so it's not just the only thing I'm doing.

You can certainly do that! You can add or remove a Linode whenever you'd like, and there's no minimum time you have to keep a Linode.
