WinMx World News / Re: Music Streaming Service Introduces Explicit Lyric Filtering
« Last post by Pri on April 25, 2018, 01:36:56 pm »
Gotta protect the children. As they say.

Basically anytime anyone wants to censor anything it's cause of the children. My kids know some bad words, but they also know that they're bad and not to utter them. Parenting appears to be a lost art with everyone wanting the services and governments to raise their kids for them instead.

Honestly drives me crazy. Our freedom of expression is being eroded every year that passes by.

Currently more than a third of the Top 50 songs in Spotify's UK chart contain explicit lyrics.


if 'bad' language is that common why are we (as humans) censoring it at all?

WinMx World News / Music Streaming Service Introduces Explicit Lyric Filtering

New money, new rules  :whistle:

Spotify, the UK's biggest music streaming service, has started testing a way of filtering out songs which have explicit lyrics.
Since 2011, streaming music providers have been expected to display the word "explicit" next to tracks that record companies believe are unsuitable for children.
Currently more than a third of the Top 50 songs in Spotify's UK chart contain explicit lyrics.

Others have complained that the setting. which is only available to Premium users, does not have a Pin code and can be changed by anyone with access to the device.

When a business reaches a certain size it becomes a target for law suits and this is likely to become a trend at Spotify in terms of creating a more financially sound and corporate style entity, expect the big "enhanced membership " drive soon.

This was interesting ..

Google has confirmed spammers can not only send out spoofed emails that appear to have been sent by Gmail users, but said messages also appear in those users' sent mail folders.

Punters have been noticing and reporting the problem for a few days on Google's Gmail help forum. In each case, users said that messages they never wrote were showing up in their folders.


This looks scary at first sight but thankfully whilst it's annoying it should not affect anyone, this makes a welcome change.

WinMX Connection Issues / Re: Help - I Cant Connect

Don't tick use SOCKS5 proxy unless you're actually using a SOCKS5 proxy. If you don't know what it means then you're not using one as you would know if you were etc

Once you make that change it should connect fine :)

I'm having trouble connecting.  I just downloaded winmx 3.54.  I use DSL.  For outgoing TCP connections, I checked "use SOCKS5 proxy."  For incoming connections, I checked "Unable to accept incoming TCP connections."  For In/Out UDP packets, I checked "Unable to send or receive UDP datagrams on any port."  I'm using Windows10 on a laptop.
