Why do some items go to the lounge and others do not?

Why do some threads get sent to the lounge and others do not? Totally a personal call by the "moderators?"

When they stray off subject or were posted in the wrong place to begin with. The McRaven thread expanded way beyond NSW, so I moved it. This thread has nothing to do with NSW, So I'm going to move it as well.

How did it have nothing to do with NSW? The McRaven thread was all about NSW, it included other SOF, but so what? I think you just didn't like what you were seeing and by doing that you're essentially trying to frame the narrative. It's unfortunate to see since this was supposed to be a place SOF guys could talk openly about issues, instead with actions like this it undermines the credibility of impartial moderators.

I'd thought to comment in it myself early on in it's genesis, yet due to where it was. . .
The conversation delved into training and issues caused by the same GOs that we started to talk about, not sure how it's not related to NSW. Especially since SOCOM runs NSW. Gonna have to agree to disagree, I think it was taken off because a lot of former and current Os don't like being called out.

Medic5392 thank you for your service.
I am not a BTDT so my recommendation means little to nothing. But for what it’s worth.

I would take your concerns to Admin Frog via PM’s. No need to start all of this in the lounge......

Hope you have a great New Year and stay safe.

The dual between officers and enlisted is as old as the wheel and fire. I can personally vouch for the fact that officers are not given any quarter anywhere on SOCNET, be it the NSW forum or any other.
