    usually a couple hours, and sometimes minutes after I login/off I get spam add requests and messages.

    I also get the same problems loading pages as you chris.

    I wonder why I still check it...

    myspace is the embodiment of all things wrong with the normal internet.

    I often get this message:

    You cant do that, you have to be logged in, and when I try to log in, I get the same message.

    Ah yes, the old, "You have to be logged in to log in!" crap. I get that all the time, too, along with all the other regular stuff. Blech.

    It gets on my nerves that Newscorp is too damn cheap to invest in some quality freakin' coders.

    There is nothing unexpected about getting "unexpected errors" with Myspace. If it wasn't such a good networking tool for a band I'd have nothing more to do with it.

    I hate the "This service hasn't started" error I get.

    Since myspace realizes that I'm using an IP address in Japan, it gives me the Japanese version of myspace. I have no problem with that, except that I can't watch myspace videos (the fucking service "hasn't started" :mad:). I can't view certain messages I received. It's damn annoying.

    The only reason I have a myspace is for my band. If I didn't have a band, I would never use myspace.

    Why would they? The site exploded exponentially with shit code, so why change?

    :agreed: However, it *is* such a good tool for networking that you ignore/avoid it at your peril...

    I've got the "unexpected error" thing a few times. No biggie, I just refresh the page! Other than that I haven't really had any of the problems you guys have...

    Sorry about not being able to join in on your myspace bashing... :(

    Oh yeah I know. I was debating between blaming Newscorp or blaming the users for not complaining and switching entirely over to superior services like Facebook.

    Same here....never heard of many of these errors you are getting. Then again, I also use Firefox with the noScript addon too. Seems to eliminate a lot of crap.

    When we Ukrainians talk shit about myspace we say "Йобаный Майспейс"

    Translate : Fucking Myspace (translate is straight :D )
