Reading the last few posts in this thread, I wondered what the big fuss was about. It was extremely obvious to me that the reason some of the non-US legal equipment was advertised was because people from other countries read this site. It may be a huge discovery to some that the internet is global, but why should their narrow view limit not only the technical discussions, but also the means that this site uses to support itself.
There is a big difference between providing information and advocating illegal activity. This is especially true when what is illegal in one corner of the world is perfectly legal in another. Yes, I am from the US. No, I don’t advocate operating what in the US would be a pirate station.
Must we have disclaimers on every piece of information provided here and elsewhere on the net? I’m sure the lawyers and the thought police would love such a policy, but I sure wouldn’t. Information is neither good or bad. It is how we make use of that information. It is up to the individual to determine what is legal in their particular country. There is ample information posted here to make it clear what is legal in the US. If someone is too stupid or too lazy to comply, then the responsibility is theirs, not this web site’s.
