Brain-dead California tech companies thinking that their role is to take a stand for social justice. Google, Faceboook, Github, Reddit, Pandora, and I'm sure the list goes on.

The worst is that you just know they get a sense of smug self satisfaction when they make the decision to use their product as a means to endorse an unrelated political ideology.

They aren't endorsing it though. They're actively punishing and shunning people who disagree. They are abusive. They only get away with it because people who hate globalization and political correctness also hate whiners who whine about abuse and use it the accusation as a weak way to control. So they won't use it themselves.

Spell check may be a god of some kind. It wants to turn globalization into cannibalization

Wasn't there some coffee shop, starcucks or something, that encouraged its servers to discuss race relations with all the customers?

I have a hacked apk to listen ad free, have unlimited skips, and download any song that plays, for free. Only reason I use the service.

Why can't they just give us ice-cream? I expect my blacksmith to keep my horse shod, my farmer to supply me with turnips, and my haberdasher to haberdash me. Do your job, and don't talk to me about religion or politics.

Just canceled. That's too bad, because I liked the service!

Really? Because of a post on a web site, you cancelled something you like. Stupidity or bullshit or both?

I don't want to support a company that indirectly advocates for the killing of cops. As a man, I'm not going to change my values based on what some stranger thinks manliness looks like. To me it looks like standing up for what you believe in, even if that slightly inconveniences you.

How about just don't use pandora at all? SpotifyTM is leagues better, anyway. Personally, I've always been a little bit suspicious of pandora.

Spotify isn't much better. Front page splattered with google music all day.

I've been using Spotify for years, and have never noticed anything like a "front page". Spotify isn't a website. Type in the music you want to hear, click, and listen! Why would you even pay attention to this front page? Do you work for pandora?

Spotify has many features that help you discover new music. And they actually work. Pandora would always try to pull you closer to the mainstream, no matter where you'd try to wander. Spotify makes weekly playlists for you that brings to surface the deep cuts you could only find by listening to entire discographies.

Pandora: "Hey, this song has a guitar in it, so I have just the thing for you up next. Have you ever heard 'Scar Tissue' by the Red Hot Chili Peppers? According to our formula, you definitely will like this song. As a matter of fact, we're just gonna overhaul all of your playlists with Red Hot Chili Peppers, cuz you definitely need to listen to them more cuz you definitely like them. You thumbs-upped a song with a guitar in it, so we are absolutely certain this is the case. No amount of thumbs-down will ever change this."

Spotify: "Ok, so, I see you've been listening to some 90's rock, most of it from some pretty obscure bands. Here's a 30 song playlist of other similar bands you may not know, as well as some hidden gems and rare tracks from the musicians you like to listen to. Especially check out this one - it's an interlude track from a side project of one of your favorite bands. While you investigate, I'll work on building another one of these lists for next week."

Pandora is shit anyway without being political. I don't know why anyone would actually pay for it.

I made the switch to an external drive loaded with music when they raised their Pandora One price. No internet connection needed; no subscription needed.

I stand for equity!
