One person has been using different identities in order to promote his website. IMO: The business idea itself is a stinker, but the main problem is how this person is promoting his site. My advice is: Stay away from freemymusic.com.

I haven´t deleted his many accounts just yet. I am waiting to see how schizo the poor guy really is. If we are lucky he will keep on posting.

..And it is not that hard to find out who he is and where he lives. In fact, it is really easy. We still need some pictures of the guy while he is taking out his garbage. Any volunteers?


I locked those two threads.
If this is to be discussed further, we can do that here in this thread.

The 4 IDs of the freemymusic.com honcho are:

jaques - jonah_wht@yahoo.com
gordon - saint_peter1@hotmail.com
jambo - drk_abraham@yahoo.com
charles - john23wilson@yahoo.com

...so far.. Laughing

poor guy. given that people whinge about myspace, "simply" because of who owns it, i have to pity the guy for even beginning to think this would work.

$2 to enter your song in a competition is ridiculous, especially when you can enter your songs into competitions on hundreds of sites (including myspace) for free.

thanks for keeping the link up. As they say, there's no such thing as bad publicity. LOL.
