Poll #1657242 MySpace, um, I dunno...

MySpace, um, I dunno...

Tell them about the buggy ads. They might fix them!

Don't bother telling them... if they don't know it's happening already, they're hopeless.

Besides, even if they did fix the ads, it would still be geared for teenyboppers, which you never were.

Quit whining. It's almost 2011 and musicians need to be everywhere on the web.

I like pie.

I'm both a hopeless idealist and a hopeless cynic. I'd like to think that if enough people tell them what's going on, they'd wake up and fix the problem. But I know that most dying websites like that would shitcan your letter. It's only been happening for years now.

I wonder what it's like to work there.

I had the same debate about DeviantArt when I had one last ad-related worm scare: Should I tell them about it or not? In the end I decided it was good to simplify my life, so I basically fired them without telling them why. I suspect DA should be more responsive because they're smaller, but I'd seen some questionable interacction (or rumors, maybe?) that led me to think feedback would be no help.

With MySpace, it's a little more involved, because I do believe that an indie musician should be in as many spaces as possible on the web, especially if they're free. They might not all yield a ton of results, but if I got a couple of fans on MySpace who aren't on ReverbNation or Bandcamp, then that's a plus. Not that I think a lot of MySpace users are looking for middle-aged folkie-types, but there might be a couple.

I bet morale is a bit of an issue there, to be honest. They've fallen quite a ways.
