WRONG! it is begotten for all to report breaking the law.
No it isn't, (assuming you mean 'beholden', as 'begotten' makes no sense). The Crown Prosecution Service advises:

https://www.cps.gov.uk/reporting-crime

'If you witness a crime you have a vital role to play in bringing the criminals to justice. You may well be feeling upset and have doubts about reporting what you have seen. There is no legal obligation to contact the police'

And the police advise the same:

https://www.askthe.police.uk/content/Q514.htm

'Whilst there is no legal requirement to report a crime, there is a moral duty on everyone of us to report to the police any crime or anything we suspect may be a crime.'

No is a consensual obligation , formed by the social contract and is an extension of living in a civilised society.


And being beholden does not imply legal duty

It is our hobby our interest our desire for honesty our desire not to see others in the hobby ripped off, so if you care then you should report it, if you don't give a toss then do nothing, no obligation we all have free choice.

All I linked to was Trading Standards *asking us* to tell them about things like this, as that is their job.

Eye spy with my little eye, something beginning with F, hidden behind MartinT's speakers :)

All worship at the Archfooshop MartinT's alter of foo :pray: :dance:

The box (according to his signature) is a SPEC RSP-901EX - a sound processor.

Showing the rear of the Ushers again, now with the SPEC RSP-901EX connected with Tony's superb 6D link cables, to match the main speaker run also in 6D. I have dressed the links to allow the SPECs to rest lightly on the rear plinths, with a large sorbothane footer placed on top largely to hold it in place. You can also see the short jumpers made from next-wallet-up BD, definitely hand crafted on the thighs of virgins.

How does it hold it in place, it does nothing but sit there not sticking it to anything else, it can't stop it moving, so that is nonsense.
