I'm sorry but that's just absolutely ridiculous. Honestly I thought we were were past this type of paranoia.
Hey just repeating what I was told. Don't know if that's still the caseI'm sorry but that's just absolutely ridiculous. Honestly I thought we were were past this type of paranoia.
Doing this doesn't hurt LEOs or Google search results, it hurts RDF members.
LEOs searching Google will have no problem finding this thread because THE TITLE OF IT INCLUDES "WAZE"... Waze is mentioned here and in every other thread about Waze using the proper name - Google isn't able to search individual posts here, however our members using our search function are, so I say again that the only people you are hurting is other RDF members.
If you don't want LEOs to find content that is posted on RDF then don't post it in a public area.

I was simply addressing the content of what you wrote, not you specifically.Hey just repeating what I was told. Don't know if that's still the case
I experienced the same confusion.I was on the forums for maybe a good couple weeks before I caught on that references to Daze actually meant Waze. I thought it was a V1 specific app that someone made. lol
Clarified by a person in authority? You guys never made a separate thread about it and asked.I might be partially to blame for the appearance of "VVaze" on RDF as I started to use it almost all the time in the last couple of months an I've seen a few others using it as well. Visually I thought it was better than "Daze, dayse, etc." Also, I spend a lot of time in JBV1 areas where this is possibly more desirable.
I also was under the impression that some people here believed this to be a benefit. To be honest, I don't always know what is searchable without an account.
In recent months we've had a new user show up like a bull in a china closet telling us all how stupid it was to call it daze because he still knew what it meant and at that point, it wasn't clarified by anyone of authority.
To me it's kind of been a gray area. So, @xydrine you are saying that we should stop this entirely?
I probably don’t have access or don’t know how to determine how high in the Forum Bots and Search Engines can search/see.
Why hide a perfectly legal discussion about the features of a free and ubiquitous app? Pointless, IMHO.I’ve been contacted and asked to not use the word Waze because google. It’s an unnecessary and counterproductive complication.
Lol so who is it that thinks they dictate the rules of this forum as opposed to our own staff?I’ve been contacted and asked to not use the word Waze because google. It’s an unnecessary and counterproductive complication.

In case it’s not clear, I’m agreeing with you. It’s my position that the use of code words or other silly obfuscations is an unnecessary complication.As far as an unnecessary complication goes that's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard, and I've heard a lot of ridiculous things...
How do you downgrade? I went to the latest version and I cannot stand the auto zoom function.
With previous versions, I kept the field of view fixed at about a four mile radius so that I had wide-area situational awareness. With the latest version, the damn auto zoom zooms the view in so close, giving you such a short view of the road ahead, that you don't learn about something until you're nearly on top of it.
When you're on an interstate, it does no good to find out about a traffic jam after you've gone past the last exit that could provide a detour around it.
This one change to auto zoom has taken Waze from what used to be a pretty serious and useful aid to navigation down to that of some kind of toy.
See my large post above about this very thing.I rationalized it as:
Waze is popular. If average people start googling "Waze" we may get more publicity about other topics the forum discusses besides Waze.
