Just got this message from an angry group moderator at Last.fm, and my answer below…

Since Last.fm was bought by CBS i’m going to cancel my last.fm subscription and will leave this site. I can understand that they sold the site for 280 million bucks, but i don’t want a huge company to make the decisions here, because things here have been bad sometimes without a major in the back.
So if anyone is interested in taking over the group just send me a pm and you can have it. If there should be more than one person i’m going to start a vot on this.
i understand your spontaneous reaction, who does not get angry when a major takes over such a nice thing as Last.fm… I am angry as well, i just hate it. CBS might definitely fuck it up totally. But you should maybe just wait for a couple of weeks/months and see what happens… We never know… Would be sad if you leave all the others in the group. Maybe we have a chace to get the freedom we need and maybe we can negociate this. If not, then we all fuck off and go somewhere else.
