So i was trying to get a discussion on a real issue in MusicBrainz when it was closed down. I won’t discuss the details as it seems that is not allowed but I do understand the difference between disagreeing and ignoring and the key data integrity issue I was trying to explain has been continually ignored throughout the thread and remain ignored. I believe in discussion and I always happily admit my mistakes when I get things wrong but in this case my concerns have just been ignored. If you are right and I am wrong you should be able to explain it but you have not.
In the last post to prevent me answering the administrator also decides to bring up some complaint about me regarding Cover Art - I totally do not understand what he is talking about. This comes just days after the ‘community leader’ Freso also decides it okay to attack me. I remember in the past other people have been banned for essentially being a bit annoying.
Throughout the years of involvement with MusicBrainz I have always found it very difficult to challenge any of the accepted norms of MusicBrainz. Many of these decisions were made by just a few people but the mythical ‘community’ is always used to back up previous decisions. In Development meetings, In MusicBrainz summits and other discussions the plan always seems to be if we don’t get agreement almost immediately then we have to stop talking about it, some things are immediately taken of the agenda if a key developer doesnt like it.
MusicBrainz maybe an open database but often I find the people involved are very closed to any new ideas, this is very disappointing.
