• 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 guess i can kind of see how someone could come to those conclusions of this site by visiting only once and only reading a few of the not so great posts. But on a whole what is said is pretty off base.

Too funny! Actually john q's points A,B,C and D could be considered a fairly accurate observation.

However I think Ron Purdue's comments regarding communist is excessive and uncalled for, maybe even approaches deformation of character. Any forum has the right to moderate the content. Every forum has it's share of assholes, as demonstrated on RadioBanter!

ROFL. I thought the same thing. But, of course I posted pictures of my pisspoor-excuse-for-a-shack just like everyone else, and there have been a few times I've chimed in with an answer, believing that I knew what I was talking about, only to be skooled by somebody who actually does know what they are talking about. Whackers exist in any radio forum... that's not exclusive content to RR heh. And well, of course I agree that there are a lot of cops-are-always-right people. That's why you and I are here. Gotta have some balance. I think RR has more balance than Fox News, so we're not doing too bad.

I know where he gets it from. I've noted some power tripping on a few occasions. Again, that'll happen on any forum that has readership. Nothing exclusive to RR or any other board. I don't know about deformation of character. There is such thing as freedom of speech. That comment reminds me of that show on TV with all the people trying to lose weight - one of them is Screech from Saved by the Bell, and the bald "drill seargent" calls him a Nazi and Screech goes crying for his lawyer. People just need to toughen up... ya know, get a thicker skin.

I'm not sure that site is going to become a hit. But if it does it'll be good for some comic relief.

ROFL! Very true! I especially got a laugh out of "A". He does have a point! :lol:

I gotta disagree with "B" though. There is actually a pretty even balance of pro and anti-cop attitudes here.

You guys know he's right about the install forum, unless someone had a picture of a flaming baboon eating a pro-38 no one would say it was a bad install :lol:
