Dear Bands on MySpace,
Recently, I added a semi-popular band as a friend. I did this for two reasons. The first is I really like the band. The second is so I could drop a banner for the site I write reviews for. Everyone’s a winner. They get more friends (thus looking more popular) and my reviews (hopefully) get more hits.
I did not, however, add this particular band so every fucking bar and local band would innudate me with friend requests.
Now I understand what you are trying to do. You are trying to get your band’s name out there. And I can dig it. I also understand, on some level, it works because of the friend whores on MySpace.
But, for the love of God, please just stop. I don’t want to be your friend. I don’t listen to your music. If I want to discover new music, I will discover it myself, thank you.
Having something shoved in your face is not a “discovery”.
So, in short, stop fucking spamming me.
Stewie Redrum, esq.
Oh, and yes, I do use myspace to actually network. But feel free to make fun of me!
