Impossible to delete certain recommendations

The reinstated ability to delete artist recommendations was long awaited, and one of the best updates in a long time - but it is not working flawlessly. At least for me, some artists are impossible to delete - they pop right back up upon reloading the recommendations page. To make sure this isn't because of some adblock-related issue, I created a fresh Firefox profile without any addons whatsoever - and I'm also not running any host-level or webproxy adblocking. But the problem persists, so I'm guessing the fault lies with last.fm.

Here are two examples of artists that I cannot delete; they just keep coming back in my recommendations. I've probably tried 50 times at this point:

https://www.last.fm/music/Braintear+Spookie

Any ideas?

Hey, we're aware of this bug but haven't tracked down the cause yet (I have it with Wednesday Campanella).  I'll flag these new examples with the development team to investigate.  If this affects you, can you also please also let us know your last.fm username, as well as the artist(s) you can't dismiss.  Thanks!
