Every time you drag an image or file to the editor it will be uploaded. After that you could cancel the post, but keep the links to the attachment.
Some users on my forum came with the idea to host illegal files without me knowing cause I can’t check all the files on Amazon S3.
I think this is a realistic possibility. The fact that by default you can’t upload very large files won’t stop you if you e.g. want to share eBooks.
- if you’re using Amazon S3, you could prevent hotlinking I think
- have a Sidekiq task check for orphans and remove them, say, every day or week.
