LAUNCHcast - You F'ers!

Okay, so I've been using LAUNCHcast to listen to music on my computer, right? Now they have all these commercials, which they used to not have...with the little message that I can pay and not have any commercials...then today, it told me that I had met my limit of listening this month and I had the choice of signing up to pay, or I could keep listening for free but I wouldn't be able to skip songs, I could only listen to my personal station that was limited and that the quality of sound was of lower quality!

I feel like they are trying their hardest to make me subscribe to their LAUNCHcast Plus, but I'm not budging, no, not budging! They think they are going to break me down, but they are WRONG! Ha! I win! This would be like subscribing to cable and then on FOX, they come up with this message that says, you know, you have watched this station too much this month, and so now you have the choice of watching our station with non-cable quality video, with lines and stuff across the screen, and oh, yeah, you can only watch Seinfield reruns all day, or you can pay $5.00 more and get the usual stuff, because I think I am already paying for my yahoo stuff, since I am already paying for DSL!

If this were last weeks poll, I would vote YAHOO LAUNCHcast as the biggest douchebags!

...sorry, no more ranting, but just like Chris Tucker in Rush Hour and his "Don't mess with a black man's radio" I feel as strongly as that about music, it is such a huge part of my day!

RE: LAUNCHcast - You F'ers!

I have really liked LAUNCHcast because I can rate music and their database seems endless, which is really cool, and I appreciate that greatly, but it just bugs me that if feels like they are hounding me to subscribe to their services! When I listen, it is kind of like a telemarketer calling me every thirty minutes! LIKE, if you don't rate songs for awhile, they will stop it and ask if you are still there and stuff! Geez...I just want to listen to some good music...lol WOW, I must be getting ready to start my period, because this is SO not like me to rant like this about a nice little freebie that I have been getting!

Is Launch Cast an additional charge alone or are they trying to get you to get a premium yahoo account? Just asking because I pay about 20 bucks a year for my yahoo and wonder if I would have to pay more for that. Yes, I could research it myself but I'm lazy.

RE: LAUNCHcast - You F'ers!

I just pay for my internet through SBC (now back to AT&T - make up your mind, btw, people) DSL. I don't pay any extra for any other services. Everything was going groovy with the LAUNCHcast, but all of a sudden, they are playing a bunch of commercials and stuff, or maybe I just have been using it long enough that now they are trying to get me to upgrade, the same thing that hotmail does, they try to get you to pay extra for more storage and stuff...not doing that either! LOL
