I don't think it's in the spirit of Sonsivri open sharing to post links to file hosts that require payment beyond a certain file size.  Speed is one issue, complete blocking out is another, especially for Sonsivri members. 

I am speaking specifically about uploadbaz, which has a 200MB limit, yet a lot of huge files are being, and have been posted there recently.  If people want to link there, fine, but a mirror to a non-pay (file sizewise) should also be required as a Sonsivri site policy if a site has a hard stop on file size. 

Otherwise, we see a bad precedent where Sonsivri becomes an ad service for people making money on setting up filehosts, setting a limit, then posting every files larger than the limit.

I agree with this concept of providing mirrors to free hosts that do not have such restrictions.
However, I am not as familiar as most here with what are the good hosts for this?
I would also consider what I would call file "longevity" places like hotfile seem to kill links pretty fast. Yet, I have noticed other places seem to keep stuff around forever.. we need to take advantage of those.

Are there some suggested hosts?

Thanks

Yea totally agree on that. Should always upload to websites like megaupload.com or any other free file host.

Not here to make any profit of work of others.
