I don't know why the link wasn't picked up by Replay either but I have
had that same experience.  

Yes it is sad to see the lengths people will go to in order to do their
nefarious deeds.  I might add that Deb and Rick Lewis do this from their
own funds and have never to date asked for any support.  It appears they
don't want or plan to, so this is all the more reason to keep the
station as free of the kind of unwanted traffic we're talking about as
we can.  

Thanks for understanding and honoring my request.  As I said before, had
I not been through this issue and had the discussion with the Lewises
myself I would have made the same request as you.  Perhaps I should have
spoken up earlier but by the time I saw the original thread I figured
someone was going to come up with the url anyway <smile>  I did feel I
needed to explain the situation to all after the fact so all would
understand and use the link judiciously.  

Take care, and let's all enjoy Rick and Deb's shows.  We were out last
night so have them to look forward to later today.  <grin>  Yes, these
are great programs and I indorse them as well!  <bigger grin>

The thought had crossed my mind that there might be the issue you wrote
about, i.e. robots and the like. Had I not run into the problem with ALL
four links using Replay of late, I would not have asked. How sad some
folks will go to such extremes to add to their music databases *sad
face*. I have made note of the 209 link but won't propagate it further.
I'm just surprised Replay didn't come up with that 209 URL.
Thank you for your concerns and spirit of fair play.
