Stop posting sources!!!
« on: October 30, 2004, 03:44:00 PM »
SWIX is no moderator or anything, but SWIX keeps seeing references to an online auction site.

Surely this is not a good idea. The authorities or the site itself may try to ban the sale of items that could bee used for illegal purposes.

Now someone will say 'What, so they ban the sale of tools cause someone can burgle a house with them???' but SWIX still thinks the sale of some lab equipment could be the subject of future efforts to control the sale of certain items.

So maybe say 'look at online auctions' without specifying the name of the company. It may just give LE policy pushers ammo.  >:(

This thread may sound paranoid and stupid, but better safe than sorry if you ask me. SWIX likes online auctions and doesn't ever want this resource jumped on by Big Brother!!!

it has been jumped on long ago by the LE, there is not much they can do to stop it but the respective online auction places (regardless of which one) may give buyer/seller info to LE.

But yes i agree, sources are banned for a reason.
