For several years, Discogs has helped me to sell a lot of records in excess from my collection.
Through all this time I have also made a considerable effort in order to help building a correct and professional database.
Those times are over now, due to Discogs' new, ridiculous, dispotic policy that forces sellers to accept only Paypal – an ill-advised decision that surely will turn against this website in the long term.
As a first consequence – only a couple of days after I resumed selling after a long hiatus and while I was building a list of 1000+ LPs to gradually put up for sale here – I will not sell anything on this website any longer, as I am not willing to accept Paypal as a payment even under torture, for a multitude of reasons (it'd be too long to list them all).
As a second consequence, as this website is not allowing me to sell my records anymore, I don't see any reason to continue to be involved in the database as I've been for many years. In other words, I have already reduced my database activity down to the bare minimum, i.e. I will only take care of my own, professionally entered contributions and possibly a few more selected records I love to have in my collection, taking care of any possible vandalism or preference edit, always in full compliance with guidelines and Staff decisions.
Reluctantly, but only to keep my collection updated, I will continue to add new releases but only if I am going to keep them. Unlike in the past, instead, I will not add any possible new release I'm only going to sell or trade.
It's been fun while it lasted, now it's time to move on.
