Mediafire links not allowed, any good reason for this?

I tried to post a link to something I uploaded on Mediafire.com and got an error/message that it's not allowed.

It's one of the best free upload sites, IMO. Wouldn't it make sense to offload some bandwidth from HA to other sites?

I see. The problem is that the HA space is rather limited. Both for the single file (8MB) and overall space (50MB). Even just lifting the 8MB limit would help, I've hit that limit more than once (without breaking the rules).

But my vote is also for lifting the Mediafire ban, since I don't think people posting illegal content is a serious problem here. Even if someone posted such a link (until it was removed), HA shouldn't be held legally responsible. Besides, there are many other file upload sites and also ways to circumvent/hide the main link, so this whole thing seems unnecessary on a website like this.
