Comment It's not global censorship (Score 1, Interesting) 337

It's corporate censorship. Google can opt out of doing business in France. Or China. Or the U.S. Or it can comply. It will comply.

This is why we can't let corporations run the world. They're in it for money, not principle or human rights or whatever. They don't have ideals... they are like sociopaths that are in it for themselves. That's not to say that they're not useful, but they shouldn't be in charge of politics.

Hate to say it, but this problem isn't going to go away. The internet will have to become regulated, with various strictures applied according under a multitude of jurisdictions. It will be messy.

Comment 57, and still an eclectic listener (Score 1) 361

Always listened to a broad range of music. Not a fan of atonal jazz/classical, rap, hip-hop, or trance. Pretty much open to anything outside of that.

My modus operandi on Spotify is to type in some word I see when stopped in traffic and peruse the results. The only problem I encounter is that there is much, much more mediocrity out there (in all musical styles) than there is truly innovative stuff. So I have to sift through a lot of sand to find the gems.
