    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.

Don't sniff your carry-on

DENVER -- An Air Tran flight en route to San Francisco from Atlanta was diverted to Denver International Airport late Friday after a crew member noticed a passenger sniffing something in a bag, an airport official said.

A hazardous materials team from the Denver Fire Department responded after the plane landed safely shortly after 11 p.m. and found no hazardous material onboard, said airport spokesman Steve Snyder.

"They (the flight crew) didn't know what it was, so they wanted to be safe," Snyder said. He said officials believed the man ws "getting high" by smelling something in his bag.

A page to Air Tran spokeswoman Judy Graham-Wilson was not immediately returned.

According to CNN, the man was escorted from the plane in handcuffs.
