    Myspace deletes Random love songs 3x!


    by Jane is K.O.

    … i used this profile image when setting up a myspace profile for RANDOM LOVE SONGS for the third and probably last time on June 5.
    The account had been deleted twice before on May 28 and June 3, 2006 without proper reasons given. After the first deletion i received a single autogenerated email of myspace telling me:

    MySpace has deleted your profile because we received a credible complaint of your violation of the MySpace Terms of Services.

    Interesting!

    I went ahead and mailed to what they call customer support to finding out about the “credible complaint” in detail. That produced the most absurd email conversations with their replybot. It seems, there’s no humans working in the “callcenter” ,-).
    It also seems, that – with a community size now bigger than Germany (80 mio./myspace 104++ mio.) – Murdochspace urgently needs an exterior democratic control to stop the bastards from unhindered money making for the next US-Republican election campaign while ignoring basic forms of politeness and customer needs. That’s just phantasizing.

    I gave up on the issue now, furthermore uninterested.
    Myspace consumes way too much time i’d like to rather spend with real humans enjoying the fantastic summer together.

    What did i forget? :: The third (last) attempt for a profile was deleted again sometime before June 14, without later notification, of course.
    Whatever.

    If you comment on this, keep in mind, that of course i have covered advertisements using CSS on the profiles!
    And of course i used my own musicplayer (both i still do on all other kliklak artists’ pages). But that’s not to be debated.
    Are you walking around outside oblidged to watching all advertisement posters, just because of your nation’s “terms of service”???
    What’s important here, is the issue of establishing democratic control mechanisms in privately controlled webcommunities. There must be common standards of respective dealing with customer needs.

    Tooooot!
