Admin support for this effort checking in.

Profile, please. I have the God gun for this bulletin board.

So far, your first impression has been weak here.

Fill out your profile, and don't BS us.

So far my impression of the EBB has not been favorable, to say the least, and it would appear that some very paranoid individuals with delusions of grandeur run the show.

The reason I checked this scene out in the first place was because I saw a copy of some posts by a SEAL Poser by the name of Allen Holt of Portland, Maine who posts here as an Army Ranger.

Now what would be his nickname here? But does it really matter? Because most of the folks who post on this EBB are very likely the same type of frauds and wanna-bes.

Anyhow, do me the favor of pulling my plug, you rude, obnoxious piece of filth! And please continue to swim in the memories of things passed that never happened.

People who come here claiming a background in SOF get checked and asked for proof of their claims. We don't tolerate posers at all. You were actually treated rather well, mainly because of your age and the fact that you are possibly a veteran of RVN. You were asked nicely several times to fill out your profile, which we require of everyone here, not just hyper-sensitive crabby old air force staff sergeants. As for your friend Allen Holt, I doubt he posts here as a Ranger. If he wants to be a poser, that would definitely not be the unit of choice on this board as there are many of us and we mostly know each other.

That would usually be me. As for doing you that favor, I most certainly will. Buckle up buttercup. Enjoy the ride out, and fuck you very much.

Looms but the Horror of the shade
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul.

Thin skinned, with an agenda, and no one really got on his case. Pretty strange behavior, especially for a Vietnam vet.

Nothing like the shitstorm I stepped into when I signed on.

Good work guys!

I heard the rotors from miles away on that one. Now the "snatch" they pulled last night was spectacular. :D

Thanks Cass, DH, Terry, et al.

I missed Hal's response on the other thread. Glad I did too. I hate being called "Sir"

Terry, PM inbound shortly.
