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?

We don't really have a bandwidth problem at this point. I don't know the original reason for the ban, but it was probably to stop people from posting illegal stuff and linking it here, and also to encourage uploading here instead of going through add-ridden sites with upload delays and intentional throttling, etc.

Using our bandwidth to spread good audio software that people want is not a loss.
