So, how does Distrokid factor in to this? After reading, I had the impression that anybody with $20 could upload their music via Distrokid... is the idea that the annual fee is supposed to be a filter to prevent shitty music? Pirated music is one thing, but 'shitty music' seems a bit tougher to police.

pud said in an earlier post that there's a propietary spam filtering system in there that he's understandably reluctant to share details on.

A spam filter is different than an "amateur" or "unprofessional" filter though. I don't see how it could protect against that.
