Ill keep it as short and brief as possible:
When AL and LPP came out on the scene almost a year ago it caused a lot of problems in these forums for Roy.
Legal action was threatened and and as a result Roy banned an entire click of people from here because of their involvement/ sales pms or general support of LPP and strongly cautioned the rest of us not to publicly or privately discuss where people could obtain these jammers, or to sell these jammers on the forums.
We were told that allegedly the jammers(LPP and AL) violated patent laws and werent approved for sale in the USA.
We were also told that any members who sold them on the forums would be immediately and permanently banned and I know of some that were and remained banned to this day.
Also any members who discussed and informed people where they could obtain these jammers from were told if caught they would be banned.(im not sure if any actually were though)
Recently Roy Removed The LI conference. ( I wasnt happy about it).
He also made it clear that discussion about the jammers could occur but sales were prohibited.
Just like he did with LPP he cautioned members about discussion of where to obtain the jammers and threatened to ban members who violated this rule.
His last post on the matter I recall was
Now in the last little while I have noticed that the LI team is allowed to operate with relative impunity to the forum rules as they are laid out.Originally Posted by radarroy
By allowed I dont mean officially I mean that posts violating this rule go unmoderated. Members who sell LI's Are not banned, and members who publicly and privately tell people where to get them are not cautioned let alone banned.
I noticed that the LI UK rep has joined up and the only contributions i have seen him make to the forum in my opinion, would constitute only as being spam. He posts info to his online LI sales site and talks about his ordering and payment policies here. He also went so far as to put a direct link to his online store in his forum signature here. (hes removed it after I mentioned that I thought it may be against the forum rules to do so)
My question isnt so much of a question as it is an observation. And that is that there appears to be a double standard here on the forum which I found was a bit curious.
We have seen members banned from these forums for less than what LI is getting away with on the forums here and I am curious as to why this is allowed?
Now After this morning I do have a personal beef with Ivan after being insulted by him but I do not have anything against him selling his jammers out of the forums here. So let me state that clearly.
As he requested I should start a new thread and we can discuss the issues at hand here.
So am I missing something here or is there some kind of double standard with LI on the forums in comparison to other jammers like LPP and if so why?
Or are we now able to discuss LPP and AL as freely as we do LI and not worry about getting banned?
Im just a bit confused.
Whats the official RD.net position on this?
