LibGen's Bloat Problem


Edit: I feel compelled to make a small clarification; I'm not arguing for purging all files greater than X MiB (even though I still think LibGen has a non-negligible amount of junk and duplicate content but neither are easy to remove without significant manpower and LibGen lacks mechanisms to crowdsource the work). Instead, I'm advocating a leaner and more "practical" version of LibGen that is easier to self-host and distribute. An extreme example of such is libgen-text, LibGen in a text only form.
