>Imho, the point is that just because social networks do it doesn't mean that Ancestry should.
You don't get it at all, do you? Ancestry already has that capability of "adding" a/v files although in a tortured manner. What we are asking is the ability to add a/v files in the same manner that this other site has. It would make adding a/v files MUCH easier. There is NO harm, or "fear" on your part, that doing so will automatically turn Ancestry into that other site.
