No problem, @4nn1l2. Today, I uploaded c:File:Peerj-12593.pdf from https://peerj.com/articles/12593.pdf.

@4nn1l2 reported the following error while trying this out:

There was a problem during the HTTP request: 432

It looks like PeerJ respond to HTTP requests without certain headers with the custom HTTP status “432” – someone on StackOverflow had the same issue. I think we’ll have to revert this; if anybody has contacts at PeerJ, feel free to tell them to fix their server, I’m pretty sure we won’t introduce custom code just for them on our end.

That's disappointing. I tried to email their support address, but the email bounced (apparently it's a Google Group that doesn't accept emails). I suppose this will have to be reverted.
