I agree that begging shouldn't be bannable.  You can express your "vote" against begging by simply not giving anything.

To the beggar: I was the same, I wanted a way of testing bitcoin before committing.  I did so using the appropriate method though: the bitcoin testnet.

You can run the bitcoin client in testnet mode and I believe the testnet bitcoin faucet still has coins.  They aren't worth anything, and they can instantly vanish if some test happens to require it; but you'll get the idea of how it all works.

Then you take the next step... transfer a few dollars to Mt.Gox (or some other exchange) and buy some.  If you are sitting in front of a computer then you can surely afford a few dollars?
