I was just on there for the first time and the community is really toxic. I couldnt agree more. I would never use that site.

When someone with great or valuable knowledge and experience can only display it with arrogance. That person cannot be trusted when things get thick. They will abandon you and sacrifice you for their own survival. They are smarter and more valuable than anyone else (in their own mind).
I know a few locally that I have marked "shoot on site" if we ever end up in a apocalypse or civil war situation. They view everyone else as "means of resources".
Take care of Soldiers, Show em how its done and do it with em, Run to the Fight & and hold your ground! I die my men go home! If you're a NCO and this ain't you. GET OUT! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

First, you use your first post to warn others to stay away from another site, in the post title no less. We have "no dog in the fight" here, and totally lack any context of the discussion(s) you reference. 

Second, you seem to already be on the defensive before ever engaging anyone here in any discussion by stating that you're just "waiting to be slammed, smacked, belittled" here as well. Could your problem on SH be that you've got a chip on your shoulder and are unable to accept constructive criticism without getting defensive? I don't know and I'm not saying that's the case as it relates to whatever occurred on SH. Again, we totally lack any context and are being asked to take sides without having any facts with which to form opinions, but the fact you introduced yourself with a pessimistic outlook right out of the gate here, before having a single interaction with anyone, doesn't help your case any.

Third, you used your first post to openly slam Frank and opened the door for others to potentially follow suit. Again, we "have no dog in this fight" and have no way of knowing if your criticism of him is valid or not. For argument's sake, even if your criticism is valid, I'm not a fan of calling someone out like that in a setting where the party being called out is unable to defend himself. I think that's a Bush League move personally. In the grand scheme of things, nothing said on any internet forum, using anonymous user names is really all that important or life-altering. It's just the internet, and this is just entertainment, a way to pass the time in lieu of going to see a movie. Lighten up.

Just wanted to say; I don't know how I stumbled onto this thread. This particular response and many of the ones after convinced me to join your forum. Y'all sound like a good crowd to hang out with, even for a lurker. Very well put.
