It's a little blurry and hard to read... Do you think you could copy what they said into text on the thread?

That appears to be a different message than what the scammers form that thread were doing, but it's a scam nonetheless.

Burn it fire.

Generally any site that sends people (or bots) out to spam other sites with "You should come here!" is a scam... legit sites do not need to make use of such shady tactics as spamming random people with messages all over the internet.

Here I though my work was finally getting the recognition it deserves but now I feel raped.

I've gotten this message before loads of times, but never here on Newgrounds. It was usually in a "1 second after you upload" comment on Soundcloud, but yeah, it's a scam. Anytime someone uses the phrase "Why don't you upload your stuff here at -insert random url here-", it's most likely a scam.

Sometimes it's sent by people who are trying to start up a site to make money. Sometimes they're "legit" as in you can post and can make ad royalty money and stuff, but the licensing is usually pretty iffy considering the owners have to make money somehow.

After ctrl+ing to make that readable, I'd say it's an add bot, and this site's sorta shit.

It's not a scam but it's probably a waste of time.

As soon as you get the idea that it's a scam, it's probably best not to take the risk. Just upload to trusted digital distributors such as bandcamp. Besides, it's not like those sites (that basically no one has heard of) they advertise will help you to earn a fanbase anyways.

Let's just combine this thread with the larger Shady Proposition thread.
