Yesterday I uploaded on my dark ambient page on soundcloud the preview of the to tracks that'll be released this month. In a matter of seconds, one like, no listen. A bot? probably yes. doesn't matter, this always happen. But, for the first time ever, the two tracks got reposted multiple times by three different bots, all of them with the same profile picture: "Buy real soundcloud followers! Check us out!". The thing is, I never paid for any kind of service from anyone, and I'll never will. I have a strong stance that you get your followers, plays, likes and reposts in a organic, legitimate way. I'm worried now, because I may lose some of my legit followers because of this. From what I know, dark ambient listeners and producers are very, very sensible to those kind of things. I'm even thinking on recording a message to them and tell them I've got nothing to do with Bot A, Bot B and Bot C, and hope that my reputation isn't scratched for life. The question is: will reporting them to soundcloud help in any way? This seem much like of what happen to those hacker/cracker groups: you arrest one group, two more appear. When is this going to end? Soundcloud is a very good platform for amateur (like me) and semi-pro producers to publish their tracks and all, but it's getting ruined by bots. Legit work from PEOPLE being thrown in the trash by ROBOTS. /rant.
