    "You've told me how, without SoundCloud, there would be a giant gaping void in today's world of music." Really? I don't think so. Who here has a Pro Account?

    I have a pro account.

    On a separate note, there's a lot of good music on SoundCloud that is not available anywhere else.

    But it's ok: some idiot has given them more money :D

    I started paying for my soundclick about a year ago . I've never tried to make money off of music, so it's just
    a little bit nicer-looking way to present it, and I get more stats info (that I haven't checked on in months).
    Never made a significant jump to soundcloud ; just as well, now ...

    I do indeed also number among the idiots giving SC money, but my contribution is quite small compared to the $170m they have just received.

    Let's see how quickly they can burn through this lot.

    So they need to 'monetize' ( I assume that in English that means charge for) their services. So, who pays then, those that make the music or those that listen? Now, in the olden days ...

    Good old Auntie Beebs' Have Your Say has 11 whole comments, being such an important issue. What colour Lewis Hamilton's underpants were at Silverstone saw over 400 in 5 hours. :whistling:

    I am following this thread in hopes of more "Grumpy Thrumpy."

    Both the grumping and the name calling. It's exhilarating.

    You missed the "d" in Curmudgeon. I will never look at you in the same way again.

    It's the way the Yorkshire warves spelle it on the album because the " " is missing from the Junior Printing Outfit"

    Love Thrumpy

    I've been in too many dungeons lately. I shall let the error stand as testament to this day.

    Technically I missed the "d" in curmudgeonly, not curmudgeon. I am a generous spirit however, so I won't hold it against you for more than 500 years.

    Doesn't matter. You have lost all moral authority.

    I didn't realise I had any to begin with, so really I feel like I've come out of this ordeal a winner :)
