Yup, that's exactly what they do. That's why it takes so long to post there.
Could you imagine doing that as a job? What a headache you'd have afte 30

Haha, they don't take anything larger than 20 MB. I'm not sure if
staff would actually listen to an entire 20 minute song, but I think they do
it with 5 minute songs.

I'm almost certainly going to move most of my mp3's to a different site. The
whole copyright/legal thing was bad enough, but at least arguable on their
side in most cases. Now they're taking more than a month to review and post
songs of artists who don't pay $20 a month. I'm not sure if this is going to
be much better of a business model for them if all the non-paying artists
remove their pages and stop providing ad space. (One of the things that they
offer paying artists is to have your page free of advertisements.)
