1. My "Top Artists" list shows artists that I've only listened to in private sessions. Trust me, I'm sure about this. Nobody needs to know I listen to Britney Spears from time to time.
2. I've unchecked the "Top Artists" checkbox in the "Profile" section in "Preferences", yet the "Top Artists" are still showing in my profile.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Yes, a friend confirmed to me that he could see all my guilty pleasures on my profile, meaning that he not only could see my top artists even though they're turned off, but also artists that I have only listened to in private sessions.
It's not the end of the world, but if I use a software in a private mode, I expect it to be private and the data not ever be used in any form of public data visualization.
Also, in earlier versions of the Mac desktop client, I could see my preferences reflected on my profile. If I had the top artists unchecked I myself could not see them on my profile. I believe (and hope) this is still the case, or otherwise I don't understand why I can't see the top tracks as well. I can only see my top artists, but not the top tracks, and both are turned off in my preferences.
Version 0.8.2.572.geb65f9ac, by the way.

I am having the same problem. It appears that Spotify actually has no solution for this. What is the point of having preferences, if they are meaningless?

Yeah, these guys aren't the only one having this problem. My top artists at the top of my profile are all wrong, as is my top tracks playlist at the top of my profile. Can we get both to connect to Last.fm in the near future perhaps?

I have this same issue. A few of the "Top Artitsts" have songs I listened to for a few seconds. Most of them are artists I have never even heard of before.
