    I see. I actually did get a similar message. My bad thinking that the sample was rejected because the title changed. It was a weird coincidence, though, how they happened around the same time. The moderator did add this comment:
    "Apologies for the earlier approval, this was a moderator's mistake. While there's an interesting similarity here, it's not a distinctive enough reference - the similarity is as close as it is, for example, to the synths in Ray Parker Jr's 'Ghostbusters' or Funkadelic's 'Knee Deep'. We therefore have to remove this from the database."

    @Theexperimentalist I was the uploader of that sample. This is what WhoSampled sent me when they took down my sample:
    "This submission does not meet the required standard for a replayed sample (interpolation). An interpolation must be a long, distinctive and clearly identifiable reference to the original rather than an incidental similarity. The reference must be obvious and the intention to reference the earlier recording beyond doubt. Although previously approved by one of our moderators, a recent enquiry has caused us to review this entry. Whilst there is certainly a strong similarity here, we are looking at a sequence of just two notes that in the Deadmau5 track form part of a much longer phrase and, despite the fact that they are played using a very similar sounding synth, there is nothing here that we can see to suggest that this is an intentional reference to the earlier track and for that reason, we are now removing this entry."

    Nevermind. It was rejected again.

    They used the wrong remixer's name from the sample and deleted it. (It turns out that Jacques Lu Cont went by many names, including Thin White Duke.) It's fixed now:
