Replying to a comment by rr-:
I think that such platforms are quite hostile to the kind of content we publish. The files get deleted, accounts banned etc. whereas torrents offer the benefit of a peer-to-peer file sharing. So, even if the files will be removed due to for example a takedown request, there will be other people willing to step in and share them with you. It's less than ideal, but it is what it is.
