I leave the blogsphere for a couple months and the whole place goes nuts. I have spent the last few weeks trying to dig up all my old links that I'd lost only to find that there is another (the same one?) so called deleter out there again and he/they are virtually destroying some of the best blogs out here.
It begs many questions. Why someone would waste time reporting and getting albums that sold about 5 copies in the last twenty years deleted? Don't they realise that they are all but eliminating any chance these albums have got? Are they just trying to ruin people's harmless enjoyment, of which there are so few left in this fucked up world?
I have said this before, and I have to say it again--you cannot stop this, and we will find other methods of sharing. You can't stop people buying used stuff, and you can't stop the liraries from loaning out the stuff. Give it up and get a life. Go fight against something you can actually win, or even better, something productive (God forbid!!). You are fighting something similar to a war on drugs here.
I just got an anonymus (of course) comment that said "We're stopping you from stealing from us......" and to that I say, why not let the artists decide for themselves if they want you to be their gatekeeper. Who made you king of the blogs? Myself and many others have gotten plenty of praise from artists who were just glad to be remembered (and also a few who asked their stuff to be removed--which all bloggers I know comply with A.S.A.P.). I don't recall any "we" becoming the appointed mayor(s) of blogtown.
I will be back in a couple days with some stuff, and it will probably only last a few hours so you'll have to grab it quick. Or possibly I will upload it twice and save one link for the good folks I know well to trust with them. We'll see how it goes. You know, if some people could just use the time they waste on petty nonsense for good, this world could be a better place.
