Bitcoin was released with a 32MiB blocksize limit

Cool! Do you realize this is exactly the number I mentioned in an earlier post in this thread?
Can you give a link that shows this 32MiB limit?

Requiring that all nodes must be able to handle a certain size of block is a production quita, isn't it? Even unlimited sinze blocks is simple an unlimited quota: you have to be able to handle an unlimited size, it is an insanely high quota, a quota that no one might actually be able to meet it, as it could even turn out tht the massive multintional effort to produce the largest block that the fastest fibre backbone can transmit within 10 minutes ends up choking a few such blocks later and ends up finding it cannot even itself handle blocks that large in the long run.

So there is always a quota, it is a technical quota, all we are talking about is keeping the quota from growing too insanely high to be practical for mass decentralisation world-wide, including in places where there is such a thing as too big to hide.
