I'ts size is the problem. Many sites have limited bandwidth and diskspace and therefore choose groups and expirations accordingly. They leave out binary groups because of the bandwidth and diskspace required. > If I don't post a long post, how do I share a picture? Is there another > way? Yes. Post them to alt.binaries.pictures.misc and point a reference here saying I just posted X pictures of cool saabs to abpm with the title "Cool Saabs". > Do you not want to see pictures of interesting SAABs? Love to.. but not here. > Did anyone download it and find it interesting? Nope.. because it was here. It may have been autocanceled before I ever saw it.
