Grow up.Ok so let me get this correct. A high schooler with no experience in the "real world" working environment joined this group because he believes you guys are some what to be looked up to and will have knowledge/answers that could be passed off. Again let me repeat High school. So if there is such high standards on who is admitted to this forum why is he on here or continued to be allowed? I quote "On this forum we PREFER for our members to utilize proper grammar when POSSIBLE". Let's say because he is in High School and speaking from personal experience, his school has failed him/ lack of personal education like the average teen/intellectual level is not super high/grammar language skills aren't on a high and he can't use it when "POSSIBLE". Maybe English isn't his first language, though it is important to master the language to even apply for these kind of positions, he is showing interest in working for and serving the US government. You are all agreeing that responding to his inquiry it is best to say things such as, and I quote "So you went from being an unintelligible high schooler to an unintelligible college pre freshman" another quote "Go apply yourself in college and live your life a little without being anymore stupid than you already seem". Proper grammar does foster a professional feel, I agree 100%. But those comments above foster professionalism to you?
"Snarky" post because I called out people, that for no other reason than just to be cruel made those comments.
I've been trained on situational awareness plenty of times and I know how to interact and communicate with many people of different backgrounds. Just how I know and have been trained not to get into an ego trip with your kind, because according to you all everybody is a dumbass. I also know how to speak to a young man trying to do something professional with his life, asking men that he obviously looks up to (because why else would a high school kid be on this) for some info, and the result is he gets shitted on.
Sorry if my white horse showed a bit to much compassion for the young man and my instinct was to defend the kid. But I see stroking each other on behaving like assholes is the way to go.
I love the guys who trained me, the ones I work with and also the ones I have personal relationships , but trust me I think I could possibly get over being rejected from this site.
Theres ways of being direct even if it will hurt someone's feelings without being intentionally mean. If that's to human for you all because being a brute is more respectful, kick me off on this then.
Would you walk into a team room, and start bitching the team guys out for the way they treat some cherry? We have set standards here. We have rules and norms, you might have taken a second to read around and absorb some of the environment before writing some passive aggressive bullshit.
We don't treat high schoolers like they are just kids here. Many of the "kids" want to join elite units. Mentorship begins with attention to detail, even in the smallest of things. We have had many site members who did follow our advice, and are either in various phases of training, or have made it and are actively serving in SOF.
You might have realized all this had you taken a step back and analyzed your environment.
