    Never underestimate the amount of contempt a failed musician has for those of us who are still trying.
    If the party's good enough, you can actually suck to a remarkable degree.

    I don't know if the myth is busted, Spotify modified the software or it's a bug but...

    The last couple of nights I thought I'd play the Bad Livers whilst I slept to put a few more sheckles in their coffer.

    On the following mornings I'd find that the player had stopped playing mid-song.

    That could be a glitch or by design -- I'm going to have to investigate further.

    Very interesting read. It definitely seems like things can be improved in this front. I know streaming is still in its infancy, and ridden with problems, but didn't think it was that bad in terms of the system being basically so open to abuse.
    Sigh... too much work to be done still.

    If Spotify had any intention of sticking around in the long term, they might work on addressing it.
