Sorry if this has come up before, but as an infrequent and "free" member of spotify, not really had time to read all the blogs and info. But was wondering, if there is a time limit on monthly free use and it isn't used, why can't it be carried over to the next month and so on. Surely, Mr Spotify, if the system hasn't been used, then it will cost the company nothing. Advertisers cover the costs of "free" users, but if we can't use it, then the advertising is wasted!! If I have 30 friends at my house for any kind of occassion, spotify is an excellent medium and I am advertising it by using it,but very embarrassing when it shuts down! Just wondering, any thoughts?!
