Ever since +Gerid Adams​​ went public with the early results of his courageous investigation into RESWUE, which you can read here (https://plus.google.com/+GeridAdams/posts/bQjyakKKmwK), I've been working up the courage to share what I have learned about another vital weapon in the Guardian hunter's arsenal.

What I have discovered will shock you. I haven't posted before, out of fear of reprisal from Guardian hunters on both sides. But Gerid can't be the only whistle-blower. If others like me start to follow Gerid's courageous example and come out of the shadows, maybe we can make a real difference here. Are you listening, +John Hanke​​?

To cut to the chase... I have learned, through sources I still must protect, that there is an app used in virtually every instance of Guardian Portal takedown. You get points for it, too! Usually. This app is brazenly offered for FREE right in the Google Play Store by its makers. And nowhere in their TOS do they forbid the odious practice of Guardian hunting. Do you need a smokier gun than this?? I will post the link here, but I just rely on your better natures not to use this powerful tool to become a Guardian hunter yourselves.

deep breath, Aaron, you can do this

This app, known colloquially as The Scanner, has been used in every verified Guardian Portal takedown. By hunters on both sides. Like Gerid, I am mostly concerned about the impact of hunting in the x-faction #Ingress community, and most definitely am not motivated by frustration that the other team has a shinier toy right now. And I was definitely NOT spurred on in this by a troll source. I was handed information, and drew my own conclusion. I leave you, now, to do the same.

Good night. God bless you, and God bless the worldwide XM portal network.

#Ingress internal issues. Feel free to ignore, unless you're interested. In which case let me know so I can recruit you. We've got a new achievement for that... 
With 90 minutes having passed since the announcement of the Recruiter badge, I would like to propose a community petition to remove the badge. There are various reasons, just look at any post in the ingress community today.

Hi, gadget-savvy friends. I'm looking for a bluetooth headset for my phone that can also double as a pair of decent earphones, so I can watch Netflix or HBOGo on my commute. +Gustavo G. had a pretty good one on Saturday (what was the brand and model again, Gus?), but I'm open to suggestions. I would prefer to spend less than $50.
