I think it is generally proved for many years than a publicly readable ftp incoming dir is an invitation for abuse from teenage warez hoons etc.

for personal files it is easy to make a gmail account and then upload to a pages.google.com webpage or similar if there is something to share. more permanent contributed datasets and code can be put in the SVN addons repo if needed.

another thing to investigate is how to link to images from another site. with the GDF wiki if you put a *.jpg url in the page you would see an image, with the new OSGeo wiki you just the the URL link to the image.
