• 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:

Who's dumb idea was it to need a facebook account to leave comments on feeds?
I won't allow my identity to be stolen on that site...

And you use your callsign for your username here. I haven't tried leaving a comment, but if you don't want to use Facebook I guess you don't get to leave a comment.

Personally I was hoping "anonymous" would have shut down the fakebook site....

:roll:

The only way people get their identity stolen on Facebook is by falling for some scam where an "old friend" contacts them and says they have $100,000,000,000,000,000 in a bank account that belonged to a Nigerien oil minister and are willing to transfer it to you if you give them all your personal information.:wink:

KB3JQQ: You are no more likely to have an identity theft issue on FB, than you are anywhere else. You are responsible for guarding your personal information.

That being said, onto my main comment:
What I do on RR is public, and what I do on FB is non-public. (It is only available to my friends, and the admins.) RR will not be linked to my "real" life.

I do not have my identity liked to anything publicly available on RR for many reasons. To the best of my knowledge, only one (non-admin) user has my information.

If my FB account needs to be linked, so I can make comments, then I guess my comments will be to the feed suppliers, as a PM. I do not cross-link accounts. (Much like how I can no longer sign in to YouTube, as they insist on linking your account to some other site.)

They don't get linked. Comments on feed pages are done with Facebook accounts only. RadioReference accounts have nothing to do with it. The people who comment aren't necessarily (and most of them probably aren't) RR users at all.

The comments would be done with FB, which has nothing to do with RR. Therefore I shouldn't have to expose my FB info, to make comments on RR pages.

Lindsay has decided he wants things to run differently, which is his right, but it will limit comments by RR members.
