Hi Ben,
 
We're still not seeing you guys perform well on Soulseek. Can you
please investigate the problem and ACTUALLY solve it (going on for
months now)? In my most recent search I selected Beyonce Beautiful Liar
and was able to download almost everything. We need to cut through the
BS and solve this issue. With our new agreement approaching we should
expect to see the efficacy easily above the 95% mark. It's very
unfortunate when I have to tell SBME each week that you can't hit the
mark. Please make this a priority. If you can't provide a good
solution we will either have to request serious credits or pull this
network from your services. As it stands right now it's a waste of our
resources at this level of protection.
 
FYI: Some of your competing vendors are offering higher efficacy levels
than what we are seeing here.
 
Thanks,
Dong

attached mail follows:


That Beyonce track is not setup properly. You have Shakira in the track
keywords. So unless they put Shakira in the search string, we won't hit.
The track keywords should be just "Liar Beautiful" instead of "Shakira
Liar Beautiful" (order of track keywords don't matter).

 

Below is our Soulseek tests from the last 2 weeks. The network has been
hitting well. So I'll need a couple more tracks where he thinks we're
not hitting...because internally we are.

 

We'll also run another batch of Sony tests on Soulseek tomorrow.

Hi Ben,

 

We're still not seeing you guys perform well on Soulseek. Can you
please investigate the problem and ACTUALLY solve it (going on for
months now)? In my most recent search I selected Beyonce Beautiful Liar
and was able to download almost everything. We need to cut through the
BS and solve this issue. With our new agreement approaching we should
expect to see the efficacy easily above the 95% mark. It's very
unfortunate when I have to tell SBME each week that you can't hit the
mark. Please make this a priority. If you can't provide a good
solution we will either have to request serious credits or pull this
network from your services. As it stands right now it's a waste of our
resources at this level of protection.

 

FYI: Some of your competing vendors are offering higher efficacy levels
than what we are seeing here.

 

Thanks,

Dong
