No, what I'm going to do is simply refuse to add this until the error gets noticed and/or fixed. As I indicated in the Magic RPM thread, I simply HATE. Shit. Like. This. You are supposed to be a reputable website run by professionals. What the actual FUCK.

Apologies for the rant, but this IRKS me. I realize the world is facing a myriad of problems right now, and a missing entry on a year-end music list means less than less than less than nothing in the grand scheme of things. But in this day and age it should actually be easier NOT to make a mistake like this than to make one.

No worries, I get it. I'd be tempted to write a note at the bottom of column stating something like: 'We moved entries up to correct their error. If you feel the need to be pedantic and complain about it then get lost - we don't care.'

Someone in the comments asked about the missing #24, and the editor provided this astounding reply (translated by Google):

"Let's see, the 24th is a gap that we have left so that you can metais [sic] your favorite album that does not appear on the list. So you have a list with which you can empathize. Mine in that position is the King's Mouth of Flaming Lips."

In other words, we fucked up but because we're a bunch of assholes who don't take anything seriously we refuse to just admit it.

I will enter the list, obviously, but I will leave the numbers as is and there just won't be a #24.

Really? I wouldn't begrudge any decision to leave Hipersonica off the list next year, if they decide to pull this again.

"We hold our readers in such contempt that we expect them to fall for this bullshit we just pulled out our collective arse".

It's a shame as the list itself shows more imagination and openness to non-Anglophone music than most.
Every time I thought I'd got it made, it seemed the taste was not so sweet

Maybe, they misranked the 24th position. Why not renamed its list "Los 50 mejores discos internacionales de 2019"?
