It Made Me Feel Too Self-Conscious About My Musical Tastes

For whoever was interested, I was keeping track of the songs I played on iTunes. Not anymore. The plugin kept asking me for a password I had already repeatedly supplied, and there was no real value in people knowing what music I'm into. It made me feel too self-conscious about my musical tastes ("quick", I would think, "press the 'next' button before people think I like that song" or "I'd rather people didn't know that song was on repeat for 3 hours").
