Did I hear correctly that only 1% of people here support?

    If so, and if server costs are high, what can we do about this for people that can't won't support? From a technical standpoint is it possible to distribute traffic to this site among multiple machines? I know the images have been offloaded but what about other areas? If torrents can be distributed on a P2P basis with no central server why can't a bulletin board? Say someone has a DDNS address and wanted to share some storage/bandwidth. Can this be done?

    Already done that dude. We have servers worldwide serving images, we have a database server and a file server. there is no way we can downgrade with the size of our database.

    Right, but you're paying for those servers. If I can share my storage/bandwidth to distribute a linux distro why can't I do the same for this place? You "borrow" a little of a lot of connections.

    I see, we have bandwidth coming out the ass bro no worries on that. It's just the hardware and sheer amount of work the staff provides that I am complaining about. also you have to admit that 1% is shameful.
