Default Increasing range of attachment extensions allowed

Hail, oh mighty gerbils to whom I am but another chewable plaything of inadequate quality.

Would there be any chance of allowing .cpp as an attachment type?

We're guessing that is a C++ file extension.

You could zip/gzip/bzip2 it and upload it, or just use a .txt extension.

This kind of request would actually go to the trolls, and as far as they are concerned, if it ain't Forth, it ain't worth bothering with.

How about .7z archives? I'm quite sure the trolls would approve, as it is (currently) a bit obscure, maybe even eccentric. BTW, did they ever get (or disclose) their names?

No names yet.

The trolls are very much against oddball archiving software even though their eccentric behavior would suggest otherwise.

There are free zip/gzip/bzip2 programs for all platforms.

Think of the target audience and not what is easiest for you.
