• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I thought I saw a thread on this previously but was unable to locate it in a search.

The following comment was posted on the feed- which we all know is virtually live...

"yea its not live, its achived recordings that are a week old... i have a scanner and i heard this stuff LIVE a week ago"

Without engaging this individual in a pointless conversation- is there a way to remove the post?

No, there is not. It's very frustrating, I have a comment with foul language on my feed that I can't delete. I have no problem with the Facebook plugin, but feed owners absolutely need a way to moderate the comment streams on their own feeds. Too many fools out there who don't think before posting.

Wow... havent known there isnt a way to remove comments. If I get a negative comment on my feed, I will just shut the feed down and delete it I guess - sad it has to be that way.

If you have a Facebook account, you can at least remove the comment from immediate view by making enough posts to bump the comment to a second page. (I know some people really hate the idea of going anywhere near the site, but realize that if feed providers are ever given moderation ability, that will probably require a Facebook account too. I doubt Facebook is going to allow changes to be made to its data on the basis of having logged into this site.)

You might also try marking it as spam, and also reporting abuse to facebook.

Sometimes, they will act on a post that is injurious.

Or you could post a comment saying the feed is live and for that user to clear his cache. He was likely using the web based player and the audio was looping to old audio.
