It works fine.
See EG's post.
Good example of "low-load. more if you NEED it" applied as the site provides for.
"Furthermore". we have PM-PM plus "regular" emails backing up public "PM" postings.
MANY instances where one or a few folks out of who-knows? Tens of thousands? Have actual NEED of higher-resolution YET.
Annnd ...helpful members provide those larger files by person-to-person email.
Print data from a catalog or service or parts manual very often needs FAR higher resolution. But only a few who have physical possession of the specific rare/old machine it applies to actually need that level of detail at all, and not often.
LOTS of us have had help of that source from John Oder, but "not-only". There are several among the "usual suspects" who happen to have a document or several - even a "library" of no-longer-common, or were NEVER "common", source material who have shared it that way.
OR . two members sorting out a potential sale or trade that needs finer details or a foto from a different angle of a sub-feature, etc..
If it ain't broken?
What is there to fix?
