The Discogs community is filled with every sort of person you can imagine. Although there are guidelines for expected behavior, we all behave like a herd of cats, commenting both appropriately and inappropriately. All done in the name of protecting the integrity of the database.

One of the more active members of this community has accused me of vandalism after an edit and published their opinion on T.O.P.

I apply a very literal interpretation of the principle "as on release" when I create submissions. I have encountered several users that find my judgement inappropriate.

Enough said. I have other hobbies. I'll be moving on; slowly.

In the meantime, I will principally use Discogs to document my collection of music. When I find that I have in my hand an artifact (vinyl or cd) that does not clearly conform with a known release submitted to Discogs, including appropriate artwork, I will make my own submission. On occasion I will add digital scans of the release artwork from my physical copy to a submission I find inadequate in this regard.

I then leave the submission to all the trolls in the Discogs community, their claim to responsibility for assessing if my submission brings value to the marketplace.

If you send a message to me, I will respond. But, it may take a few days.

I do vote on my own submissions and releases that I have in my collection.

An outstanding collection of ambient music. I found this compilation in the public library in Stockholm. Intrigued by the architecture shown on the cover, I checked it out and took it home to listen. So soothing . . .
