Any way to forbid scrobbling to Last.fm from specific playlist?

I have a special playlist for miscellaneous songs, voice recording, test files, conversions, tags experiments, files I need for my work, etc. It's a mess, often with wrong tags and weird names. It’s like my workbench in Foobar2000 and its content is continuously changing. So I need none of these files to be scrobbled to Last.fm when i play them. Is there any way to permanently block scrobbling from this exact playlist? I'am using standard Last.fm scrobbler 2.1.37.

lastfm scrobble  isn't a foobar component thus it seems strange to ask if foobar can exclude files/playlists for scrobbling. If this can be done via lastfm scrobbler (doubtful) then this isn't really a foobar related question. Foobar's own scrobbler, foo_scrobble, has a skip format field so perhaps it's possible to tag all those files with value and then refer to that value as the skip format. I'm not sure how to use skip format as I've never used that option before so you'll have to do some testing.
Here's the foo_scrobble thread: https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=114979.0

I did a small test myself by excluding an artist.

Code: [Select]
$if($strstr(%artist%,Subtle),1,)

This excluded artist named Subtle from being scrobbled. You can apply the same principle by tagging the files you want excluded with whatever value and then refer to that value in the skip format field in the component settings.
