I already HAVE the information I originally wanted, I’m simply irked that
SOMEONE at Allmusic is monkeying around with DATA or access to data
and I cannot think up any reason why my results are not an effect of
someone demonstrating calculated intent.
I want to know what results you get on Allmusic
COMPARE those results with what you find on Wikipedia, Discogs, etc…
What I want to know is why Allmusic returns NO results on that artist
aside from songwriting credits (that link to nowhere) and Karaoke records.
I am offended beyond words that ANYONE would monkey around with information
What I expect to get is proof that someone at Allmusic hates Bryan Adams
(for whatever petty reason they have) I do not expect to get proof that I
am wrong about this.
Though I’d love proof that there is not malicious intent here AND though
I would actually welcome any such proof, I think the likelihood
that anyone can provide it is right up there with the likelihood that
all the models from the most recent sports illustrated swimsuit edition
will be lining up at my front door to be impregnated… right after the
Victoria’s secret models have left after being similarly serviced.
I personally could care less about Brian Adams, I have never owned any of the man’s recordings, though I I consider his music to be in the class of “ignorable Pop music”.
I found this “problem” entirely by accident and because I’m methodical
and determined I have spent several hours in each of several sessions
on that site trying to get past whatever block on accessing the data.
How about this, for your amusement do a google search on “Hate Bryan Adams”.
(Just between you and me the people who complain about his voice have obviously never heard Rod Stewart:)
individuals have a right to hate any music they want to hate, though why they would bother when IGNORING is so much easier, but a database administrator or the management of a website dedicated to music look-up does NOT have any such “right” and if they indulge themselves they should (in my CAREFULLY CONSIDERED OPINION) be burned at the stake… do not suffer under even the slightest illusion that I do not mean this literally or that I would not provide the Kindling, Kerosene & Matches.
