anonfiles.com is closing down and this port can't work without it, so I mark it
as broken.

After trying endlessly for two years to run a file sharing site with user
anonymity we have been tired of handling the extreme volumes of people abusing
it and the headaches it has created for us.
Maybe it is hard to understand but after tens of million uploads and many
petabytes later all work of handling abuse was automated through all available
channels to be fast as possible.
We have auto banned contents of hundreds of thousands files.
Banned file names and also banned specific usage patterns connected to abusive
material to the point where we did not care if we accidental delete thousands
of false positive in this process.
Even after all this the high volume of abuse will not stop.
This is not the kind of work we imagine when acquiring it and recently our
proxy provider shut us down.

This can not continue.
