The official Sebastian Junger community
<b>Forums, provided by the hard work of someone and dedicated to a specific cause are normally moderated - and have a 'report' button for posters to report abuse by trolls, should the moderator not catch them...(and for people like me, a spell checker is really, but really, helpful ;o)</b>
We know what trolls are: disrupters who have no honest intent of discussion - but only to unload their vitriol and smears.
Forums are not free-for-alls. Case in point, the troll (Eric) who, from the safety of his keyboard, spews his warped vision of WAR and warriors...while enjoying the freedoms so bitterly won by those he, in his unwarranted view of his intelligence, rails against. (His diabtribe is out of place here and especially unwelcome on this weekend. )
If allowed, such trolls will take over this forum and that would be a great injustice to our troops and to Sebastian and Tim, who have sacrificed and braved much to bring this story to us back home.
If these pontificating trolls want to spew their ignorance, let them start their own forum. They have that freedom, thanks to our troops of yesterday, today and ever on, as long as there is evil in the world.
(Or better yet, let them do what Sebastian and Tim - and our troops did - and then write from experience, rather then off the top of his head. the difference between theory and reality is a wide, deep chasm.)
There's no place here for the John Kerry soldier haters. NEVER AGAIN,
