· What does the multiplier in 'site nuke' do?

Multiplier is a penalty measure. If it is 0, the user doesn't lose any
credits for the stuff being nuked. If it is 1, user only loses the
amount of credits he gained by uploading the files (which is calculated
by multiplying total size of file by his/her ratio). If multiplier is more
than 1, the user loses the credits he/she gained by uploading, PLUS some
extra credits. The formula is this: size * ratio + size * (multiplier - 1).
This way, multiplier of 2 causes user to lose size * ratio + size * 1,
so the additional penalty in this case is the size of nuked files. If the
multiplier is 3, user loses size * ratio + size * 2, etc.
