Excellent motto. When will you be donating to PokeCommunity, something you consume? I might match the donation.

    Tragedy of the commons dear
    if saws gets to use that logic then everyone gets to use that logic, and if everyone used that logic spotify would go out of business
    it's a good service that's well worth paying for tbh.

    If the ads don't disrupt the music I don't see the issue.

    That’s a pretty nice perk, all things considered. I actually wonder how Starbucks scored that.

    My lord, that was a struggle and a half scrolling down to get to here, crumbs.

    Anyway, I mean, "you should pay for what you consume" yet Spotify offer a free service so..............????? Or perhaps I'm missing the point here

    Jeff Bezos could probably own more than a single country, he could probably own a whole archipelago of island nations.

      I thought that these sites get revenue from ad clicks, or is it from the loading of ads as well?

      the whole pay for what you consume, does that mean people who can't afford food or medicine should just die?

      Generally speaking. What I said shouldn't be universally applied... there are obviously many counterexamples. For example, if your country has programs for food stamps, healthcare, etc, then you are obviously entitled to the benefits by being a citizen. I believe that individuals have a moral obligation to help out others (within reason of course).

      What I meant was that I disagree with using ad blockers when listening to Spotify because that is how Spotify receives revenue. Or pirating music/movies/games/etc. I'm not judging anyone that does those things or anything. I dont care. And what I said should certainly not extend to me wanting people to die.

      I see, I find the adblocker I use only works sometimes anyway, I keep forgetting to try a new one out.

      But in all seriousness, ads are kinda used for their advertising and all. I mean, there are methods to do it, but even then I don't think Saws would use Spotify enough or be enough of advertising hassle to put them out of business.

      I wonder when youtube will stop trying to kill itself and telling peeps to stay back as it continues to just be blegh. (I mean, it does have entertaining value, but a lot of issues do arise)

      I wonder if anyone else here has tried youtube or made a channel, besides Herolink?
