@stanthescanman01 your post above leaves more questions than information. I do not know what disappeared or what makes you think RR lost the complaint or it disappeared, who is no longer able to post, or how you know the feed was previously reported. Nor do you mention the feed. Really no way to help you without the whole story. As for Facebook, as @N5XPM said, that is a Facebook issue not a Radio Reference concern.

RR support has the information who it is. RR has no control over facebook correct but if you are a police officer would you want your plans posted with everything you are saying minute by minute when your trying to catch armed criminals. thats why departments go with encryption.

Feeding TACs is a gross violation of policy here. As for FB; the poster should be reported to the group admin (assuming this is a group posts) and should be kicked off the group. I'm a member of 4 scanner groups. Only a few of us have real scanners; the rest listen to the feed. Those of us with scanners do not post anything on TACs or we're extremely vague. It angers some when we say we can't be specific but we stick by it for officer safety. Still, VBPD seems intent on the big "E" after converting to TDMA.

Hey Stan Welcome to RR. As a newbie with only two post you are being moderated carefully so... they hear you. You're free to talk about encryption but not free to talk about encryption and screaming on RR. Just the way it is... despite what your feelings are about it or how you feel it influences anything.

So you have made an observation regarding streaming here on RR that concerns you, probably the best thing to do when that happens is keep it off the open forum and contact the powers to be directly. The CEO and owner of the Forum keeps a very close eye on everything and is very reactive to perceived violations or issues.

The last thing you want to do is talk about it on the open forum. Being discreet and helpful will always be appreciated... Bob.

Take this to heart, public complaints get you spanked.
