• 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:

RFE for Online Shopping FAQ

Many of the members of this site rely on online purchases primarily. I have just come to find out the hard way that different *major* shopping websites have different policies from each other.

For example I went to a major website and unknowingly purchased an item from a reseller who had no return policy -- even though the major website did.

So I'd like to ask for a FAQ underneath "Equipment on eBay" on the main site in where one can find payment, return and shipping policies of the four or five major online sites.

This would be caveated as not a horror story thread (like mine) but a "what you need to know before" resource. This could even be a Wiki.

I can't moderate but I could (and we all could) contribute.
