That's a dick response.
You have become noticeably more confrontational since your recent "I haven't enlisted yet"'post.
More cavalier, certainly. Nobody likes getting dogpiled on, especially for just trying to get information to make a deeply personal and life-changing decision. Ditto for being derided for hitting a snag in my enlistment that was both out of my control and in no way any of your business. Getting shit from what amounts, basically, to some guy on the internet for not hitting his timeline for my life is pretty low on my list. So if I'm gonna get grief any way I cut it, I may as well speak my mind. That said, apologies to @Freefalling if that came off more brusque than direct.
You feel the members here have nothing to offer you anymore and so you have decided to go out with a bang.
I'm not sure what the members had to offer me to begin with. That wasn't why I joined. There's no member here who can wave a magic wand and get me into an ODA or shave 3 minutes off my 5-mile. I joined to get a sense of and interact with the guys I was thinking of applying to work with.
Just to be crystal clear - I sincerely don't mean to be argumentative or disrespectful to you, but you have no right whatsoever to give me grief over something you have no information on, and if a ban on an internet forum is the penalty for standing up for myself, so be it. I welcome constructive criticism, but sometimes it just crosses a line that detracts from the atmosphere of discussion and personal development that I assume most people are are here for.
Anyway, sorry to go off-topic.
