And yes we are trying to make money - FOR THE ARTISTS of course we are going to stop people putting up whole full length tracks when we are going to be selling them
We have made the choice to make this thread public to try to ensure as little amounts of channels are affected so if we were trying to eliminate the competition as you claimed why would we tell everyone to remove specific tracks and artists
Every track that is being removed will still be available as clips not full tracks on our channel any ways
Firstly, if you "suspected" this would happen...why did you do it ?
WHY are you tryin to make money for the artists? Surely they could do all this without your help,I know i've seen enough people on here get some artists to release a ltd repress of certain tunes etc...i'm afraid you are tryin to corner the market,despite your denials .
To me it seems like you've gatecrashed a community and said ok my house is bigger and better than yours so come to my party ...I think you greatly under estimated the strength of the community on here and thought that people would just roll over and be hanging on your every word .
You went public and told everyone in order to save youreslves getting a bad rep(earlier than you have) and the hassle of taking down peoples' clips.and pi$$ing them off.
Reverse psychology in my book...
As someone else pointed out the whole thing smacks of Thatcherism....taking from the smaller sitess/channels....stop them from trading. & denying people access ..and then scooping it all up and placing it in one big exclusive corporate site ....I'm afaid you are the Gordon Gecko of Old Skool...and the antithesis of what most people stand for in this and other similar online communities
