xxNew releases are now shorter, is streaming overriding artistic creativity?

Popular music is shrinking. From 2013 to 2018, the average song on the Billboard Hot 100 fell from 3 minutes and 50 seconds to about 3 minutes and 30 seconds. Six percent of hit songs were 2 minutes 30 seconds or shorter in 2018, up from just 1% five years before.

Stands to reason if artists are being paid per stream, long gone are the 10 or 15 minute tracks.

xxForums email restored, hopefully for now

I had to reset something with SELinux that was preventing the forums from invoking the sendmail process, which randomly popped up on a software upgrade. I officially hate SELinux even more than when I had to set up the exemptions just to get the forum script working in the first place.

If this happens again, I am outright disabling SELinux. Piece of crap.
