    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 need a bracket to support an antenna mast. I realized that stuff isn't too readily available off the shelf like it once was, so I went online. I tried Radioshack, HomeDepot and Lowes. Lowes had it listed as available only online (not in store), so I ordered it and picked the "in store pickup" option, since there is no shipping charge.

What amazed me (so far) is the claim that if you order something "online" before 3pm, you can pick the item up at the store the same day, two hours later. So that means to me the item is probably really in the store somewhere, just not out taking up shelf space.

The "so far" means I haven't actually tried to claim the item up, but if its really waiting, I'll be impressed.
