I actually finally started downloading a few songs to sample. When I listened to them, 75% of the time, at some point in the song, it breaks to an annoying screeching sound for a random number of seconds and the song resumes. It essentially ruins the purpose of the song. What I'd like to know is if there are companies and individuals out there who are sending these messed up songs out into the P2P world, why are those who download them keep them in their shared folder unless it is out of laziness to filter out the crap they get?
There just isn't that many people/companies doing this on purpose that it should affect us. It may be an annoying tactic to deter us, but that's all it is...annoying.
