Because I don't want to limit the audience to the 1% or so who use bit
torrent (according to some stats I just looked up). Also because I
occasionally add files to the archive, and hosting it on a web server
(plus updating the copy at archive.org) assures that everybody who
downloads it gets the latest version.
Mind you, distributing the collection as a torrent makes sense - if
enough people "adopt" the thing to keep it seeded, that provides a
distributed archival copy, hard to scrub out of the networks.
Speaking of torrents, here's a bit of fun: Punishment Park (Peter
Watkins, 1971), a pseudo-documentary where a British film crew follows a
U.S. political tribunal. The by-definition guilty suspects can choose
their sentence: A long prison term, or a three day hike in Punishment
Park. Watkins cast real radicals and real pigs in as many roles as
possible, and it shows: A couple of them do "lose their shit" on
camera. In a 'meta' sense the film really does present as a
documentary. Five stars, etc.
