the thing i find most annoying about spotify is it always seems to be the songs that i actually want to listen to that have been made unavailable "this week".
not had any issues with the app though.

actually, tell a lie. it's the way spotify doesn't cater for different versions of the same song. so there will be an album on there, but the song sounds literally nothing like it does on the physical album, because it's a different version ripped from somewhere else. :roll:

Or if you download a compilation and suddenly the version is different, happens a lot with 80s stuff

spotify- still.

that company is a joke, they tell me to dm about the fault, I do, they make it worse then ignore my dm telling them they have made it worse. so far I have had my password changed without warning, had to log into their test account and now they ignore if I ask what to do next

Finishing a job just as my shift ends and going to bed as we set sail for home. Getting up to be told we've been turned around and there''s more work to do.

People not contacting you back, so far an M3 forum has read me as spam and the contact section gets nothing and a query on fixing some leather damage goes unanswered and to top it off work is slowly turning into the seventh level of hell.

Yeah, I was just thinking that, Sscott. Seems that a certain iklarbendret is responsible for it. Apparently, according to his profile, he's a mechanical engineer from the USA. Go figure. I just want him to go back to the whatever mental institution he came from.

PSJ has wandered off for a bit, I'm offshore with very limited net access and Marko works odd hours.

I only saw the one post in the time I was on, binned it and reported to Marko for a ban. Tis done now.

Is it not possible to put in some code which blocks any topic with Russian text so as to completely remove this communist tw*t?

Countries can be banned based on I.p addresses.

I think languages can be banned but not sure
