The MP3s are pretty nice if you're online in a location that's not your normal computer. Also, if you'd like to hear the general quality of a recording, it's much more convenient to get a 5 meg MP3 instead of a 42 meg FLAC/SHN. Also good if you've never heard of the artist before and you want to get a quick taste of what they're about. And it's not as though they throw out the lossless version. Nothing bad is happening.

But why people would only collect the MP3s from there, I cannot say.
