Those two things aren't related.

believe me, that exact scenario comes up a lot and figures into our decisions to pull stuff... we don't just yank... there is usually a lengthy discussion and some sort of consensus before any action is taken. We try pretty hard to be light handed and I can tell you from being part of it, that leniency is more common than hard-ass moderation. In many cases, this is started by users reporting issues with the torrents rather than us looking for the problems. I can tell you that ALL reports are thoughly checked out. I'd say action is taken on about 50% of them.. in others cases we find a reason to allow the torrent to stay. That's right - we look for reasons to LEAVE the torrent in every case...

but, lossy is lossy, has no defense and there's no place for it here.
