The previous discussion of the license and associated terms, after the 
license was unilaterally revised, made it clear that hosting was a 
service to authors made available on a take-it-or-leave-it basis with no 
discussion wanted or considered. I remember the message as "If you do 
not accept the new license, remove existing uploads and do not upload in 
the future."
