Don't waste my time making me repeat what has been said a million times before.
700MB is a very large file - given the amount of posts we receive here that are people actually wanting to download illegal files, it's rare to actually have someone post that is being legitimate (hence the referral to the search feature incase they were). I didn't (and don't) perceive your solution to be the one they wanted, which is why I didn't supply that answer. On the more technical side, DCC is not the greatest protocol to be dealing with files of that size.
Because the person was not very clear with their problem (and only specified a file size) they could always reply and say "I'm not getting anything illegal, my <someone> is sending me a large file
" and then they could be helped further. As I see it, they have the option to use the search feature which has the ability to provide 90% of answers anyway, and IF
they are illegal file trading, they know the dangers and what this forum's stance of it is, so they don't reply with "So yeah, I'm trying to get mp3s, does that make a difference?"
It has nothing to do with being on the 'soap box', and I don't quite know who you're referring to when you say 'our' time. If you don't like the forum rules or how this forum works, you are under no obligation to stay.
