    You're so smart...with such wit. If you'd been my mentor, I'm sure I would have adapted immediately.

    The only point that I can see the complainers have is that they don't like moderation period, any is too much. Well, we saw how that worked out, didn't we?
    Can't pass? Really? I have 5 excellents, a satisfactory and 4 goods that beg to differ. My waist has never measured above 32" yet even I know that is a bullshit measure of fitness.

    Perhaps some of us just like to bitch?

    Then I press on.
    Great advice, I'll have to remember to do that myself.

    "This thread did not keep with the concept or background and has been closed."

    The quote from Mod about the AF News and Current Events thread. Other than the final post in the thread, every single post was about AF News and Current Events, with links to the site. It was more on topic and relevant to the Air Force than any thread we have. Just an observation.

    You are welcome to discuss AF new and current events.

    One long thread about a myriad of topics is pretty much one thread replacing the point of the Air Force Forum.

    You can keep forcing people to walk between the lines, but the organic nature of this community will result in (mixed metaphor aside) water finding its level, irrespective of artificial constrictions. I don't know why you guys keep trying to force things. It's not really working, from what I can tell and just annoys loyal posters. But, as has been shown, you can take your ball and go home, and there's nothing we can do about it.
