Well the thing with this particular set is that NJVC got really picky and stingy about its distribution because of asshats selling it for profit on places like eBay. I don’t blame him a bit, but that’s why it’s only on the places it’s at.
And I completely agree, but as far as Mega goes, it’s a single point of failure or “control”. Especially given Mega’s past. Just a thought. You can’t protect against asshats by hindering the community that wants to enjoy it. Asshats will always exist, even beyond your knowledge. The Lego MF 75192 set had a custom stand built on rebrickable.com recently. People ended up listing up eBay even tho it’s completely free. I’ve never understood the choice of removing your media just because you don’t like people doing bad things with it. You screw over the people you meant to help making you just as bad as the people selling the media.
Just my thoughts, I still support a choice not to share by the content creator. I upload things to UseNet as my own archival process to protect myself. 6+ years of “free” “unlimited” unbiased cloud storage. Lol. These days usenet retention doesn’t shrink, everyday is another day of retention added. Gone are the days of retention wars.
No one is being “screwed over.” NJVC doesn’t owe us anything. We should all be grateful for the work he put into this and be grateful there’s a way for us to get them for FREE.
