How Not To Help Competing Bands Who-Are-Not-Good-As-You-Are Sell More

Techdirt reports that bands, that are not that great, are selling more in iTunes when other bands, considered great, pulled out from iTunes because they, band and record companies, wants to: a) sell more albums; and b) discourage sales of singles from said albums by increasing single prices.

This appears to point to: a) consumers flicking the finger to bands, considered great, that ignore consumer wishes; and b) consumers prefer convenience, much prefer convenience.

Which leads us to : a) proliferation of mediocrity because consumer prefer convenience over quality; and b) producers of quality goods often have no concept of the internet.

In conclusion: a) what is with the lists???; and b) I feel silly than suicidal today.
