• 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:

Just out of curiosity, was your posting "off topic?" I too had a post deleted from that thread earlier this afternoon, and mine was off topic. Even apologized for it being so. Guess the powers that be really want to keep that thread on track, and to their credit, they are doing a good job of doing so.

Yes, due to the multiple requests by us and yet still members are posting OT we're deleting them with no warning or comment. There have been too many and we understand people have varying capacities for patience so we aren't going to fault them by issuing infractions.

So if you post gets deleted please just leave it at that and move forward. We're sorry but threads that get as huge as these "discussion" threads get become essentially useless to read from the beginning or tough to locate useful information.

Hey, I understand how it is. I am a moderator on a forum.. and member of many. I know how whiny, petty, and insane people are on the internet... haha

I appreciate the work you guys do. I hope starting this thread shows that I wasn't at all upset, mad, or put off by it.. I just didn't know why.

Keep up the good work!!
