It's not a matter of voting... it's a matter of paying for the ftp server
bandwidth. Using bittorrent you pay for the transfer by uploading a bit
yourself, not to mention that many volunteers (like me) leave their
bittorrents clients up and running long after they're done downloading
(I've already uploaded about 35 DVD's worth).
