Wondering if the use of military related quotes is tolerated on this board by people such as myself?

I used General Bradley because he is one of the generals I respect the most

To anyone who may be new here, please note when NousDefionsDoc posts, it is very well worth paying attention to. Same goes for any other Quiet Professional on this site.

Folks you had better adhere to NDD. No one wants to piss off a medic, never know when you will suddenly have a consult for a finger wave.

Not sure if we weren't supposed to post in this topic anymore, but I was just wondering if you QP's feel my, "I'm a quiet wannabe" is mocking your "title" as a QP? Never intended it that way, I thought of it more as clever then disrespectful, but if the vast majority feel it is I will change it....

Clever is not a synonym for professional.

And this is not a democracy, therefore it does not require a "vast majority".

Having browsed some of the other sites that allow unrestricted "labelling", I've definitely come to appreciate the more conservative attitude here. It also seems to help people with limited SA keep their foot out of their mouth. Peregrino

Well, DICKWEED, your comment about not intending it to be "Mocking" and then adding the "DISRESPECTFUL" part of your explanation, has your happy ass on a short final to an immediate departure !!! Unless you meant to say THAN rather than THEN !?!?! If so, obviously your command of the English Language is remedial and lacking !!!

If you have never been watched and tracked before, THEN you are in for a very new experience sport !!

I will be watching !!

Have a very SF Day !!!

It would appear that Brother Ambush Master is not very fond of clever.

Clever Rob, you are lucky, that was a warning shot - most of his warning shots are to the temple.

I'll keep that in mind.

And yes, I intended to say "than". Simple typo and noted.

No special status needed, but I'd like my regimental badge, the one I use elsewhere to be used.

The QP's here work hard to keep this a professional, serious no BS site. Trust me ...I was spanked once (and deserved it). It is evident, as soon as you go into SOCNET or Aiborneranger etc., the level, types, topics of dicussion and conversations here are far an above anything I have seen. It is nice to be able to read someones argument or point of view without the F bomb or similar words being used three times a sentence. "A serious site for serious people." For what its worth...thanks.
