      We have been cautioning folks on using Feedburner for a while now.
      Google has done nothing with the platform, and it is our #1 ongoing
      support issue with folks that made the misatake of using it. Here are
      two articles on the subject..


      On a second note: Why would anyone risk putting their media on
      Soundcloud when Soundcloud can do whatever they want with the media.
      They may not drop ads on the content today but as companies mature they
      need to make money.. We have seen this repeated many times use at your
      own risk..
