Default Please turn your Mic OFF

This is a note to feed owners who have a microphone in or connected to your computer.

Please make sure your computer microphone is OFF or MUTED and set your Mic volume all the way down.

If you have an external Mic, disconnect it when not in use.

We are seeing (hearing) a number of feeds with open Mic's.

In these cases, feed listeners are hearing all house hold sounds and conversations.

Remember, if you leave your Mic on, everything you say is heard by others and may be used against you in the court of public opinion.

You also embarrass yourself and all those in the house.

So, please turn your Mic OFF

None of my computers have Microphones attached so I can't see this being a problem on my feed. LOL

We did have another local guy doing a feed and I had to tell him to shut his mic off a few times. He doesn't do feeds any longer.

Another thing audio feed providers need to do after setting up their feed......LISTEN TO IT ! Many feeds are over driven with audio or have nasty hum it's sad.

Log in and listen to your feed just like a end user would. If it sounds bad, please address it.
