remember all night parties with 10 different styles... with people n'shit... that was fun... facebook events suck. No calendar, no easy finding of previously attended raves, no direct linkage of dj/artist profiles to events. Facebook could really learn something from [ rave.ca ]
I'm feeling forward every thurs right now..

agreed,

someone should write a [ rave.ca ] mobile app with just the calender and maybe a few other extras...
I'm feeling surly right now..

Agree. Promoters and people should use [ rave.ca ] more. Updating the event calendar is a must
I'm feeling trance in my pants! right now..

Yes!

The FB event listing is garbage -- and now they even 'suggest' events, so you get fuckin' spam in there too, along w/ the 20 invites a day xD

I still check the [ rave.ca ] calendar, but fewer ppl post events there now ... too bad, 'cause it's so much easier to find events you'd be interested in, and can check on specific days that you're free to go out on, instead of only being aware of what ppl invite you to.

On the other hand, I did hear rumors that part of why ppl rather not post events here is that the cops are well aware of this site, and use it as a reference ... but hey, it's not like FB s all that private anyway ...

I'm pretty sure the cops have full access to Facebook. I'll tell you a story someday about the cops that makes no sense except if they had access to private Facebook profiles somehow.

Police need an order of the court to investigate/spy on website or people. For this they need solid proof. Ask your local police station, they'll tell you. In Canada you can legally post events like raves in public media.

I think those rumors are just paranoia

What they are allowed to do and what they DO do, are two different things ;)

Also, just checking the calendar, which is public, might not be something they need a court order for, 'specially if they bust/check out a party where they don't need to site their proof or whatever ... know what I mean? But you may be right, which would be a good thing ;)

On the other hand, those rules are being changed by Harper, like our version of the Patriot Act, so I dunno what the future holds for 'net privacy o_O ... and companies already have their dirty little fingers in all our communications ... .. .

I hope that it is. I sure hope they can't just browse Facebook like they were you or something. But I have this puzzling story...

A friend of mine, let's call him Christian, was recently arrested by the police on the charge of simle possession (a few speeds) after they asked him if they could search him all of a sudden and he said yes. They were just at the corner from his workplace, and when he went out for his break, they adressed him by his name and immediately asked if they could search him. His answer should obviously have been ''no'', but he told me the intervention was so surprising, sudden and unexpected that he answered ''yes''.

Anyway, the puzzling part is this: after they found drugs on him, they put him in the back of the car and started asking questions about drug dealers, pointing out that they knew he was a DJ and that he saw ''a lot of stuff''. They even mentioned that they knew that he played the Circus recently and that they were looking at drug dealing in the techno scene nowadays. Christian is not sure who mentioned the Circus first, but he's pretty sure it's them.

They offered to give him an informant number so he could turn dealers in anonymously against money and also to forget the simple possession charge if he cooperated. He chose not to. Good or bad decision, I don't know. But they left him a phone number as well as what I assume to be their badge numbers in case he wanted to contact them to become an informant.

My question is: how did they know where to wait for him (workplace) and his full name if they couldn't somehow have full access to Facebook?

I'm wondering if they didn't start some operation to arrest drug dealers and decided to intercept people close to the scene with criminal cases. Christian has a criminal case.

If they had linked his name with his DJ name beforehand and started an operation to get info on drug dealing in the scene, that would explain why they targeted him precisely.

But how could they know where he works if they didn't have access to his complete profile?

I'm pretty sure they don't have enough resources to devote to following every raver with a criminal case around until they find out about their habits. It's not Omerta. So I'm left wondering how did they wrap it all together in order to make such an intervention if they can't watch Facebook.

If they can, it's easy because his name, workplace and DJ name are on his profile. But his profile is as hidden as it can be.

So....

Any of you can think of another explanation for this?

Well, after-hours are another story. These places are probably under surveillance because with their ties with organized crime and the selling of drugs inside, this is no secret.

[ rave.ca ] is a website about raves discussion and events but in no way is linked directly to organized crime. Variant here. Usually when the police come in raves is because they had complaints about noise from the neighbors. Sometime they check if everything is safe inside and leave. Its not like they show up at EVERY events that is posted here.

Never say "yes" for a search except if they have warrant with your name on it. If they try to force/convince you (for whatever), ask for their badge numbers and say you'll fill a complaint here: [ www.deontologie-policiere.gouv.qc.ca ]

This usually calm them down.

Story of mine, A guy that I know was cut with 70 000$ of drugs in his car but the charges were drop because the police didn't follow the proper procedures. Ha!
