What thenewgreen said. I am fine with the discussion of illegal activity. Many critical topics require it. But we aren't looking to facilitate it. Hubski isn't well designed for that, anyway.

I'm sure you guys are taking this into account, but...

So, just to clarify, discussing experiences would be fine, but not sources, production methods, that sort of stuff?

I really don't know. I'm not a lawyer, so I'd have to inquire. I'd appreciate if we didn't have to go to the mat fighting to protect your identity from the FBI though. :) at least let us be able to afford some lawyers first. :)

So about six or seven years ago, I was part of a website very similar to Hubski, except it was much trollier. To make a long story short, one member posted some very, very stupid stuff and the guy that ran and owned the website had a very uncomfortable encounter with the Secret Service. He couldn't go into great details about what was said, but needless to say he was displeased.

As crazy as it sounds, these things happen, probably more often than we think. Just something to think about.

Yikes. Luckily I haven't had the pleasure yet.

As I said, Hubski is not a very good platform for that kind of activity. I don't want to give anyone the impression that it is, or that it is a goal that we have.

Ha! Yes. Please.
