So why doesn't "Delete posts by IP" automatically delete everything out of media management?
I think the de-duplicator itself is an unnecessary component. Even on sites without one, the file size never gets extremely intensive.

Currently all the de-duplicator accomplishes is the following:
1) Produce odd filenames instead of standard UNIX timestamp filenames, like 8ch
2) Increase burden and complexity of moderation by adding another layer of shit you have to do just to get files to go away
3) Introduces possibility for administrator to "forget" about illegal content -- Content they deleted or deleted by IP would be retained in media management (and still entirely accessible on server to anyone with the URL, making it possible for a less-than-knowledgeable administrator to become an unknowing CP upload site.)

Should the file de-duplicator be removed entirely? I'd like to get your opinion.
Removing it would simplify moderation and make filenames more recognizable and standard.
You think there are no benefits because you are not looking at the statistics of a site of your own that sees relevant traffic. In my opinion, there is room for improvement when it comes to making moderation more intuitive in relation to file deduplication. But I really don't think it should be removed due to the bandwidth efficiency it brings. kohlchan upload bandwidth usage has been noticeably reduced. And the more popular a site is, the more relevant the download bandwidth efficiency can be observed. About the old filenames, That's just legacy and nostalgia. The effects it has on user experience are negligible in this equation.
