• 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:

While the files remained scrambled, it's fairly trivial to look into and extract the contents of the files - albeit in encrypted form. We are sure that there are some enterprising individuals already hard at work examining the files with a hex editor. After all, the Black Hat and Defcon computer security conventions are just around the corner.
You think? :)
