I have recently been informed of your site to find something rather disturbing. It seems your user "MaestroRage" has been feeding you lies. The music he has submitted over the past three years has been nothing but stolen melodies and direct MP3 uploads of my music. It is appalling to know that such a person would take credit for the hard work I and others have put into music. While I'm not sure if all of his songs have been stolen I am sure of the ones he has taken from me. I am also aware that "MaestroRage" was awarded with the title "Musician of the Year" by the Moderators of this site. To think that such a person was rewarded a trophy for his dishonest deeds and STILL nobody caught on is even more appalling.
The ignorance this site has taken to such problems should not be ignored any longer. If the user "MaestroRage" is not taken care of I will be obligated to take legal action against him and or this site.
I'm not sure what to say, this is coming as quite a surprise, to be honest. I would have expected this from zellers and DJ Immune - they weren't really "model" figures to the audio forum community. But accusing MaestroRage?
I think we need to see what Maestro has to say on this, i'm sure there's a perfectly good explanation.
