I fucked up, and I’m making some changes. Fair winds.

you can buy weapons online you just have to call them something else

Hi all, so some of you may have seen this (now removed by OP) today, and I’d like to address some things.

First and foremost, I’m stepping down as a Moderator of this subreddit, /r/USMC, and /r/MilitaryFAQ.

I stand by my actions in the above linked post, but admit that I have a bit of a scorched earth mentality when it comes to political discussion here. I tend to overmoderate because those conversations go so sideways so fast, and I read the rule regarding politics in a more severe manner than some of the other Mods may. In this particular context, and in the name of full disclosure, I’d like to point out that I removed comments regarding Donald Trump, Barack Obama, and ones that were just downright confusing. Also in this context, as my stickied comment states, I got tired of picking my way through the post and just scrolled up and locked the whole thing, and this happened right about when I got to the back and forth regarding John McCain. I should have also removed the post, but again I tend not to do that. I like the “heads on stakes” look of moderated posts, and I think they serve a purpose for anyone who may use the search function or lurk here trying to sort out what is and isnt acceptable.

When I talk to officers about Command Climate and Esprit de Corps, I often mention that when one of us becomes a point of friction by name we have failed. The bureaucracy can be a challenge, the methodology can be evolving too slowly, the tactics can be poorly matched to the situation and mission, and that’s all ok. But when I or the boss are an obstacle, real or perceived, we’ve lost the Marines. So that’s why I’m stepping back here. I like this place too much to see it be about me, and today it became about me.

Before I go, I’d like to thank the users who have put up with me, and the other Mods who have become my friends, this is a great little community. I’m looking forward to using the report button again and spending more time with my family. Feel free to reach out if there’s ever anything I can do.
