Has anyone tried Taxi.com ?

Not me. I've known a few folks who were members for a year and one guy who was a member for a couple years. None of them had anything bad to say but neither of them seemed to get much out of it aside from the little pay-for critiques they sell you.


Here are their forums, you might get a feel from them for how lively things are... http://forums.taxi.com/general-hangout-f11.html?sid=a15b53a63d66dc3c7114979c5dd36000


Here's a search limited to Harmony-Central on the Taxi keyword: http://www.google.com/search?q=taxi+site%3Aharmony-central.com&hl=en&biw=1280&bih=655&num=10&lr=&ft=i&cr=&safe=images&tbs=



Something that folks seem to like about Taxi is that I guess they're pretty up front. They tell you how much it's going to cost. They don't apparently promise what they're unlikely to deliver, etc.



Now one thing I saw discussed in the Taxi forum linked above -- that had nothing do to with Taxi -- was pay-to-be-considered scams -- where the supposed end-customer (a festival, a songwriting contest, a TV show or video game company looking for music) shares a profit in the 'submission fees' paid up by the marks -- uh, I mean, musicians -- who pony up anywhere from 10 or 15 to 25, 50, or more for the 'privilege' of being considered to play at some festival, or submit for some show -- or other such scams.


I'd noticed a profusion of such offers at ReverbNation where I have some stuff posted -- but I had no idea that the profits were shared between ReverbNation and the evil SOB's offering the 'opportunity.'


I've been meaning to get my stuff off ReverbNation (I do kind of like their player plugin, though) and I think this might just be the tearing point. That kind of sleazy victimization of musicians is utterly beneath contempt.
