Pause doesn't really pause

When listening to a broadcast, the pause button doesn't actually pause the stream, it seems to simply mute audio. Transfers continues, and most annoyingly, every track counts as a play and is scrobbled to Last.FM even though you didn't listen to them at all.

    Hi Ricardo,

    unfortunately that's how Grooveshark broadcasts work, even on the side version you can't really pause.

    I understand that. The thing is that there is no way to stop streaming without switching to the full view right now, and the pause behaviour is unexpected. The button doesn't even change to the play shape while paused, despite muting the audio.

    Maybe the pause button should leave the broadcast, and re-join when unpaused? Or have a "leave broadcast" button added to the mini view?

    I'd prefer if the broadcast really stop on Grooveshark, beacuse if we leave the page the user loose all the broadcast information in main window.

    Maybe I'll fire grooveshark a report with a behaviour proposal.

    Dude, It's a broadcast, you can't click on pause when you're listening radio.

    Jesus. If you are going to be an asshole on the web, at least be right. It's an online broadcast, makes perfect sense to be pausable.

    And that is not even the issue; it currently has a "pause" button that acts as a mute button.
