yes i'm going to complain about something i downloaded for free. just because i didn't pay to download it doesn't mean you get a pass for your stupid fucking decisions >:(
@maffsie This is likely something directly ripped from newsgroups with a per-post size limit, and meant to maintain compatibility if you only have a partial download from there. Newsgroups first, torrent second.
@kithop i see; i've never used a newsgroup service so to me it just seemed like the uploader was a major asshole, i guess that makes sense then
@maffsie Yeah, used to be (and still kind of is) a huge deal: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usenet_newsgroup#Binary
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
