Stations that loop endlessly through a message will escape the deletion process because there is always audio present, and that is the criterion for deleting an entry. Even when a station gets deleted, I've noticed that someone may soon add it back and in no time it becomes a dead station again. Another valid gripe is that a surprising number of stations are listed multiple times. It does seem a waste of bandwidth, but it is probably cheaper to tolerate it than have someone trawl through the listing looking for duplicates. Part of the blame for adding a station multiple times lies with the way station information is listed: it's left to the person listing it to provide as many or as few details as he wishes. For example, suppose I add (fictitious example) JAZZ station KLM3 Nepal 87.41 FM but list its details as <strong>Kazza FM news</strong> then I think that I'll be its only YOURMUZE listener; anyone else searching for it will not find it on YOURMUZE so will likely add it themselves, hence risk duplicating it (if they obtain the stream from a different URL).
I reckon we need a monitored thread: DELETE THIS STATION.
<em><strong>Despite this shortcoming, I'm sure you'll agree that YOURMUZE remains a fabulous net resource.</strong></em>
