not trying to argue pedantry, although you're entirely right in that regard. Thanks, was interesting to read.
But look at the actual sub yourself - that shit really doesn't apply to what's going on. Everyone operates under the mask of "not for human consumption" - but we have nothing but vendors, reviews, and people asking for specific drugs/information. The legality of analogues in general is somewhat skewed (although it can be specific depending on the state), so it's kind of like playing with fire. All it takes if for the FDA or DEA to take notice and then saidit goes to shit

Alright pretty sure I just went from heavily considering buying one to absolutely buying one with that. How many people could speak on an encrypted channel at once? Assuming location is generally close. I'm not talking like a massive group here, but more like a 5 person conference.
Cobra 29 LTD Classic CB Radio by Broken-needles350 in 11MRadio
Thanks for all the info, really appreciate it! I'll let you know when I get one - although it may be a while as they just cut my hours hard. No worries though; telling my boss that if I can't work full time by next week then I'm quitting and getting a job in retail. Pay is way better so might be able to expend a lil bit. Sorry - I'm one for oversharing lmao
But also, what's the difference between a 10m and 11m radio? Jw
Thx again man, I'm excited to get one of these to test em out myself xD
wait, forgive my ignorance, but are you saying channels can be encrypted? To what extent?
fuck bro you are convincing me more by the second - it just looks like a fun gadget to mess around with honestly. Quick question - what does SWR mean? He might have mentioned it in the video but I missed it.
Also, what features make the cobra 29 LTD so cheap? Is it just very basic or what? I'm just also curious about the additional features higher quality cb radios offer
Thanks for putting me onto this shit man, I honestly never thought I would be interested in cb radios - especially at 20 years old lmao

I think the problem is regarding the classification of "legitimate" dealers. Like it or not - they are still operating in a very sketchy area of the law. Scamming or not; these dealers operate under a "not for human consumption" defense.
I'm sure you're aware of some US case law (just an assumption but you seem educated enough lmao) - and that really doesn't hold up if the feds want you to go down. The admins are right - allowing this type of content to continue can inadvertently harm them in the future.

greymarket is pretty fucking close if you ask me
aka being in the "grey area of the law" and all

Most definitely it will. Longterm this is without a doubt the way to go. Saidit still has a nice path it can follow too - just keep up the good work and it will survive (maybe thrive, even?) once the dust settles
That's basically what it is. We operate under the whole "not for human consumption" idea, but anyone who looks at that sub for more than 5 minutes will recognize that's clearly not the case. Despite being analogues, the shit that goes on there is definitely illegal and prosecutable.
I honestly agree. If you want a legitimate site, you are gonna eventually have to rid yourselves of anything sketchy. Greymarket vending is about as sketchy as it gets - especially with all of the recent heat it's been receiving. Once again, best of luck.
This sucks to hear, but long-term it is most definitely the right choice. Otherwise saidit would just be a ticking time bomb
Lmao thanks bro - will check it out when I get off work. Much love xD

In a perfect world, man. It would be so nice to just get to chill on some island-nation, fucking around and just enjoying life
Not sure whatever the fuck to consider what I got put into, but our contemporary version of life sure is a lot less satisfactory than I'd like it, for sure.
Thank fucking god I wasn't born in the past though; like if we think shit's bad now I couldn't imagine then. But hey, different times, different cultures, right?
/high tangent over
You're 100% right about that. It sucks ass but it's so easy to abuse a system so large. I heard recently about a guy who got fucked for something like this. The police get a tip on this guy and asked for a warrant to search his home, and they were subsequently denied (warrant was based entirely on hearsay). They modified the search request slightly, waited a couple of days, and took it to a different judge. The request was accepted, warrant was placed, search was conducted, and the guy was busted for illegal possession of a firearm. Fucking aye, I wish our rights were more than just illusions.
Very bitter-sweet for me. I want this site to do well, but greymarket was a huge component of that (for me at least).
Seriously, best of luck. I want this place to succeed as much as you do
I understand your decision, but know this will likely lead to a major decrease in this sites activity. The mods of greymarket are actively creating an alternative as we speak - I hope you guys the best, as I am aware of the precarious predicament you are in, but realistically speaking I think this will be a major hit on your site.
I do enjoy saidit more than reddit nowadays, so it saddens me to hear this news. I sincerely hope I am wrong.
