Ranks have a purpose only as follows: I posted in the thread about what a troll would do here on part15 dot US and the fact that if we want to post things the enemy could do it should be in a Elite section so that ideas don’t fall into the wrong hands. But too certain folks can miss use the ranking system in bulletin board software. Its meant for again keeping certain information from the wrong hands. Say you run a Wicca site. Wicca is the belief in Magic which again I do Metaphysics. In the wrong hands learning of magic or spirit boards can hafve a bad effect. So certain boards that deal with spirit boards and their use are pass code protected and you need to talk to a higher priest in order to have access to that section. We don’t need folks using Magic to do harm to others and we don’t condone Black Magic or Satanic worship to harm others. But in the wrong hands one could read how to do magic and change outcome and use it or try to do harm with it. Again I’ve been a member of many controversial subjects but my point is that certain subjects of Part 15 should not fall into the wrong hands. But Hobby Broadcaster goes way too far. Making it so they have to approve efvery message you send before publishing defeats the need for an Elite section in the first place. You can interact in real time due to this. So its moot to join that site for interactive discussion. I’d hope if we get an elite section its not abused. I think in the long run Bill does this to cover his ass because a member of the FCC may be watching his activities and he is ultra paranoid. Look he has a lot ot lose if he has ties with the corporate Radio folks. But look so does Timinbovey. He risks ridicule for being part 15 and he is open about it. I hand it to him there although I may not agree with all of what he says he still takes the time to participate with us and not have his nose in the air. If more people could be a man about it than part 15 would not be such a bad word in the Pro broadcasting industry.
