Networking & Commerce

I received an email today from this organization that I don't deserve or appreciate. It was from USFRA but the signature was as follows:

USFRA Administration
Master Sgt. Doug Richter
Tyndall Air Force Base, FL

Now, I don't know what prompted this, nor do I care. If there's a problem with certain members then address it with those members. Don't berate those of us who have done nothing but contribute to the site in a professional manner with emails about service violations which we haven't done.

In my 32 years of Emergency Service, including Military (6 tours Persian gulf), I have never stood for, and will certainly not put up with now, a baseless accusation from anyone.

Lets show some class and put the accusations where they belong.

Bob, I'm very sorry you took offense at his message as it did not pertain to you. The people who the message DID pertain to have since removed themselves from the site. Again my apologies, however the offenders were too numerous to contact on a one on one bases as was done previously.

This is the thing, there were members who joined this site just to advertise their other sites, not to contribute to this one. For example, in the "about me" section of their profile, there were web addresses to other sites ... in the box meant for slideshow widgets or anything of the sort there were messages like "if you want to contact me join me here" or there were those bold enough to even leave comments on new members pages to join them at another site. It just had gotten so out of hand it was very hard to keep up with. Our next option was to close of the entire site and make it private, which defeats the goal we're trying to accomplish. We also don't want the rest of our members to be solicited or put upon by those who do not wish to be a contributor to this site, but rather a leech!

We are happy to say that those who were the offenders have removed themselves from the site and those who were unaware of our new policy have corrected their errors and I'm happy to say are still with us. In no way shape or form was that message singleling you out, I received the same message as did everyone else on this site.

Agreed that Master Sgt Richter may have been a little strong in his demeanor and for that I'm so very sorry.

Being a Crusty Old Jake I tend to react to a perceived slight with a strong reaction, as you saw. No need to be sorry Fyre, we've known each other too long for that... My intention was to make it known that all of us here deserve to be treated with respect and not as junior enlisted personnel. Cops, Jakes and Sidewalk Surgeons don't react well when they're accused of something that they haven't done, or aren't responsible for. It's the nature of the beast.

Crossed wires can have unintended results. I was reasonably polite in my response, unlike if the email had come from a local politico, or some other similar mutt. MSGT Richter is not on my bad side, and I hold no grudges. A bit of thought as to the clientèle here, before drafting a message can lead to a much better response. That's my only point in my response.

So let's put the matter behind us and continue in the manner that the site was intended... Kinship, Comraderie and mutual support.
Understood and agreed!
