I am reading your posts carefully... but they are perhaps somewhat ambiguous. Would you care to share your cryptic meanings that I am missing?

... You cannot upload a DJ mix of OTHER PEOPLE'S MUSIC onto Soundcloud because of issues with the mechanical rights collections agencies that you mentioned... is this what you are trying to say??

I don't really understand what this sentence means.

AGAIN (for the THIRD time)... I accept that there is a [email protected] of HYPER-$HIT music on Soundcloud. I GET THAT!!!
What I'm saying is, it's EASY to avoid that, and there is ALSO music from virtually ALL of the artists that I like on there too....
COMPARATIVELY TO...
Bandcamp, which also has a vast majority of chaff... but only has a TINY MINORITY of the artists I like on there.

Agreed... it's great IMO.



You didn't answer why you said it's impossible to post a link for a downloadin the description/comments of your own track (?)
