Dnb Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Drum and bass (also written as "drum 'n' bass"; commonly abbreviated as "D&B", "DnB" or "D'n'B") is a genre of electronic music characterised by fast breakbeats (typically 165-185 beats per minute with heavy bass and sub-bass lines, sampled sources, and synthesizers. The music grew out of breakbeat hardcore (and its derivatives of darkcore, and hardcore jungle). The popularity of drum and bass at its commercial peak ran parallel to several other homegrown dance styles. A major influence was the original Jamaican dub and reggae sound that came into London in the 1980s. By the 1990s, this had grown into the jungle/drum and bass sound which the UK is famous for. Another feature of the style is the complex syncopation of the drum tracks' breakbeat.[Drum and bass (also written as "drum 'n' bass"; commonly abbreviated as "D&B", "DnB" or "D'n'B") is a genre of electronic music characterised by fast breakbeats (typically 165-185 beats per minute) with heavy bass and sub-bass lines, sampled sources, and synthesizers.

Next text was written blogger called Ben Broughton's sharing his statement about why Why He Hates ... Drum & Bass:
OK, this has been a long time coming. The only reason that I’ve held back from writing this Blog is that my Blog is only read by my friends and the majority of my friends fucking love Drum & Bass, so it’s bound to do down like a shit sandwich, but sadly I couldn’t hold back anymore, because the fact of the matter is Drum & Bass is fucking shit! Yeah, I said it! I know it’s easy to look at a different type of music from the outside and make harsh judgements on it, but I’m not on the outside looking in, Drum & Bass plagues my life every-fucking-day, and not just recently but this has been the case for quite a few years now. The last time I lived with someone who wasn’t constantly obsessed with Drum & Bass was when I lived at home, four years ago. So before anyone starts pointing a fucking finger in my direction and claiming; “You can’t hate something you know nothing about”, I’d like to make it clear that I know about Drum & Bass, so I’m fucking more than welcome to talk shit about it, so fuck you! Firstly Drum & Bass is not music. Music conveys emotion. Every song in any other genre of music conveys emotion, from pop to death metal. But Drum & Bass doesn’t. The only time it does is when the listener is high on pills. But face it, on pills an empty can of Coca-Cola falling down a flight of stairs, clinking on every-step sounds as if it’s music conveying emotion. It’s a sad state of affairs when a whole genre of ‘music’ can be only appreciated (I use this term loosely) when the listener is out of their normal state of mind. I know people say this about many forms of ‘music’, but in this case it’s completely true; all Drum & Bass songs sound the same. They really do. Every time I hear a Drum & Bass track, no matter which talentless artist has made it, I get a case of déjà vu! It’s freaky! And when it comes to Drum & Bass emcees, oh my days....! I thought the majority of Grime artists were terrible. The best Drum & Bass emcee makes the worst Grime emcee look like a musical mastermind. It’s just that Drum & Bass lyrics lack a fundamental essential; LYRICS. It’s just fucking muffled gibberish. I feel like I’m listening to someone taking my order at a McDonalds Drive-Thru. They could be speaking Korean for all I know. I do prefer Drum & Bass without vocals to be honest, because then at least you only have to deal with the appalling beat instead of having my ears tortured by an appalling beat and an incomprehendable drivel being spat out by some obnoxious cunt. It may be harsh to label all Drum & Bass emcees “obnoxious cunts”, so I’d like to say that I’m sure they’re not all obnoxious cunts. I’m sure the Drum & Bass emcee scene is made up of obnoxious twats, obnoxious bastards, obnoxious fucks and obnoxious [add own expletive word here] too. As I have previously mentioned plenty of my friends listen to Drum & Bass and while I have no medical credentials or no scientific proof to back up the following point, I do believe (from my own experiences) that it is still true; Drum and Bass makes people stupid. When most of my friends started listening to it I saw a rapid decline in their intelligence. They began finding it hard to concentrate on the simplest tasks, this went on to the point were some of them could no longer tie their shoes or even spell their own names. Another aspect of Drum & Bass is that it seems as if almost everyone that listens to it is a Drum & Bass DJ. I know five people that are Drum & Bass DJ’s! Five! I’d take a wild stab in the dark and estimate that a good 95% of people that listen to Drum & Bass are in fact DJs. The pendulum* has swung in favour of them, now there are more people playing Drum & Bass records than listening to them! The major increase of Drum & Bass DJs makes the global expansion of companies like McDonalds and Starbucks look pathetic. Official figures state that there are approximately 3,000 new Drum & Bass DJs everyday. If this continues it is likely that people such as myself and others that don’t like Drum & Bass will be rounded up and put into camps. Seeing as we will be the minority, we will then be allocated to a Drum & Bass DJ, chained to his (or her) decks and forced to listen to their 24 hour set, just so every Drum & Bass DJ has an audience. When that day comes I advice all those like me to chew at your own wrists until you’ve done so much damage that you eventually bleed to death. One of my biggest gripes with Drum & Bass is that people actually think I listen to it or like it. Of course it seems silly to hate something because people think you like it, shouldn’t my gripe be with this idiotic morons that believe I would like such shit? No, my gripe should be with Drum & Bass, because if it didn’t exist I wouldn’t have this problem. I’m constantly being asked if I’ve heard the new track by some D&B fuckwit! Or I’m being asked if I’m going to the next Drum & Bass night. Asking me if I like Drum & Bass is akin to asking me if I like jamming a Phillips-head screwdriver down my urethra. So, no I don’t like Drum & Bass, in fact if you’re yet to work it out from the title or from the rant above, I’ll just clarify one more time; I fucking hate Drum & Bass.

CH says"Don't use this data service! It is a waste of money and time!
I own a small business and decided to invest in D&B/Hoovers to help us find key people, companies and contact information. The information is old, out of date and you can find better data on LinkedIn and Google without the investment.
I knew it was especially bad when I looked up my own company. While they showed the company, it only showed two people and I wasn't one of them. Granted, we are a small business but I signed up for a D-U-N-S number almost 9 years ago (essentially registering with D&B directly) where I gave them all of our information. They don't even have the data I gave them directly. I am very easy to find in cyberspace and have 30K connections on LinkedIn. My information is all over our website as the CEO and they don't even show me in their database.
Additionally, many examples abound where our data team found the CEO, or C-Suite person, they have listed hasn't been at that company for more than 5 years. When we found that same person on LinkedIn with a simple search. We could easily get better data for free.
When I brought this up to our contact person at D&B he did try to get us some help. The tech person we visited with just ran us through the basic training we had before and there was never any answers for why their data is so old and out of date. Worse, when I asked to just end the 1 year agreement citing that it was not at all what they said it was, they refused. I even offered to let them keep the money I had already paid them which was for half of they year. They still refused. I tried everything I could to see if they would work with me to come to a reasonable solution. They essentially told me they weren't interested.
Don't sign their agreement! Don't pay for their worthless old data! There are much better options."
Gavin Murphy says"During this time of Covid 2020, the HMRC extended filing deadlines by 3 months and the D&B rating system was not ajdusted to take this change into account thus plunging our and probably thousands of company rating to a non-creditworthy status.
BB says"Accuracy and CS issues. Look around, see more."
Rose Sorenson says"I HATE that i have to use them register in the government's sam.gov system. Their website is confusing and glitchy. Their customer service is sub par. And worst of all, they constantly harass me trying to upsell me on services."
Stephanie Jean says"Horrible, I phoned to get a duns and the girl I spoke with was incredibly uneducated. She took my business name and asked a couple questions, and said if I was approved after they did their verification check that they would be in contact. 6 weeks later, no contact! I even specifically asked her what kind of documentation or info I could offer to help the process along, and she told me it was a secret how they verified businesses so there was nothing I could provide. This girl was very wrongly trained, as after waiting 6 weeks and not hearing back, I looked more into the application process, and you can apply online and submit 2 verification business documents, and online it is very specific what you need. I find it incredibly strange this girl I spoke to was so cryptic about the verification process, and in return, I wasted 6 weeks waiting for a duns that would never come due to the incompetent training with their business."
Erin Dolan says"Our credit signal automatically renewed without any advanced notice and was taken out of our checking account. When my CFO called to cancel our renewal they stated it was complete, but were very rude. One week later after not recieving a refund in our business checking account I called credit signal customer service. I spoke with two customer service representatives and they were extremely rude. When I asked for verification of the conversation, the representative stated- you will get an email. I then told her, "Ashley", how we did not receive a confirmation email last time and we did not receive a credit. She sighed and said fine here is your confirmation number. I will never do business with this company again."
KJ says"So disappointed in this company, but more specifically Ben Bradley, the "Customer Success Manager". We were having a very civil conversation about cancelling our subscription but he wasn’t hearing me out so I very politely asked him to speak with Nate Calvert or another supervisor two different times and he blatantly ignored me... as in, he paused and didn't respond to my question and started talking about something different, disregarding my question completely. Then when I asked a third time I said “I’ve asked twice now to speak with Nate or another supervisor, can I please speak to him now?” and he said, “I’m not going to transfer you to him”. I said, why? And he said “He’s not next to me. He’s going to say the same thing, he told me to offer you 25%”. I said “that’s okay, I’d still like to talk to him if you could please transfer me to him” and he said “I’m not going to do that. I’ll copy you on an email and you two can connect at a later date” and I said “no, I would like to talk to him now” and while I was saying that he HUNG UP ON ME. I’ve never felt so disrespected by a vendor before. I was so upset. I cannot believe he is still with the company after disrespecting a client so much. Do not treat someone like that who you want business from. SO upsetting."
Chris Onslow says"Dealt with a salesman who was ok to start with but when I followed up he contacted me and acted in a very brusk manner so decided to place our business with another provider."
Hrishi says"I deal with lot of companies for regulatory compliance purpose. If you check the D&B database they have duplicate DUNS number for many companies. They don't mention address properly, even after companies provide then correct address. If someone contact D&B for for updating address they will ask to buy their rating package which cost more than thousand dollars. It is really surprising why federal agencies have tie up with D&B! The company who cannot maintain its database properly how they can rate or evaluate other companies business. Really worst global company on whom federal agencies are relying."
