A hypothesis! Or a educated guess. Still no testing of this hypothesis has been presented has it? I haven't seen any pics or sample files to prove your hypothesis. So again there's no argument to something that has no backing except a person saying it.

A trained mathematician... oh... I apologize then. If you're a trained mathematician you must be more intelligent than I. And that makes any argument I make pointless. I bow before your greatness.

If I have time I'll construct some test files and show some pics of the differences. But really it would be better if someone else does so since any thing I submit is subject to accusations of being altered.

Not as serious as you think. I meant it as if I went to extreme levels.

/me points to the 250MB line.

Filesize of 250MB is not really within the regular releasing sizes by my peers is it?

Yes and I gave my reasoning. But for some reason you guys seem to be acting as if I'm hurting all the viewers of my files. You have used the term "we" many times to say as if everyone is looking for smaller files and I'm ignoring them. So far I've only seen two people back this claim up.

No but I do approach stubborn people who can't get the idea that they don't represent everyone in this way.

Yes that post was more aimed toward Farix.
