• 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:

With close to 6,000 feeds it would be impossible for a handful of volunteer admins to monitor every feed for TOS compliance. Some feed providers think they can get approved for a feed then later stream whatever they want.

In my opinion I believe that each member here has a responsibility to keep the hobby honest and maintain our integrity by monitoring their local feeds for any discrepancies or TOS violations. I have observed quite a few both locally and nationwide by just watching the alerts and reading the forums.

TOS violations can be reported at this link: https://broadcastify.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
