DJ Ses should have been permabanned years ago. We brought it up many times. Nothing was ever done about it.
We finally got fed up with it, so we banded together and decided to explain our case publicly. You guys still didn't ban him. We were told not to worry about song scores and chart standings, because the music itself is what's important.

I was later told by a mod that you didn't "like our attitude", hence no action was taken. Dude, we would've never had an attitude in the first place if this obvious injustice had been stopped.
