• 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:

Way to welcome the new poster. Because this isn't a radio forum or anything. :roll:

Maybe s/he found this forum on Google. I would have just posted the link without the Google thing.

NEVER post a request for information on a forum without doing a most basic of search... Bad etiquette.

Had he said "I've been searching everywhere, and just can't find the info" then that's another story. But most newbies are simply "Hey, help me, I don't know what to do." Which is fine, but to get upset because I suggested he hit Google for searches in the future -- not sure I understand.
