50k/Sec limit on the anonymous "ftp" account temporarily removed.

I will be monitoring the bandwidth usage of a couple of days to see if this is acceptable.
I've been thinking of this for quite some time as I have 10Gigabit and it feels like the 50k/Sec limit is a way to punish anonymous users for not contributing to EAB.

Well, we technically have nothing to do with EAB anymore so why should I care really =)

Also, I constantly have 5-20 anonymous users online, hacking away at 50k/Sec. If I could make them finish their downloads faster, perhaps the number of them go down.

If this becomes permanent, I will most likely remove the 50 post limit on the EAB forum for creating an upload account, but we'll see. I don't want to have to monitor uploads for someone using us a pirate site or something. We've been lucky to avoid that so far since any upload accounts are connected to your EAB forum account.

I'll keep you all updated.
