I agree with Stefan! Genuine outlets is what interests me and I  
usually skip over everything that seems as if the original creators  
have been trying to adapt to someone else's request. I justify this  
my behavior by using the time I free up to listen more to something  
that I find genuine. I think this attitude is quite common.... or at  
least should be!  ;-))
