(sorry if anything of this has been posted before, as stated have not yet been through th whole thread)
A long as it is *clearly stated* that someone is reporting hearsay, I would consider this a valid contribution that might (or might not) help just like any 1st person knowledge transmissioned. No guarantees for either, but input to base your decisons on, like in real life.
Dont see why this would require a ban neccesarily (I know a lot of POV contributions to be factually wrong or biased on whatever the person posting had lived through as *personal* experience that might vary quite a bit from the general corps experience).
Also, even if accurate in the time cotext, some of our veteran info might easily be outdated, a ban for this influencing "life altering" COAs should be not appropriate from my POV (e.g., a C160D cockpit is different from what a guy anwsering a general Transie question refers to, based on what he lived in the "A" model, accuracy is not guaranteed, but would you really consider a ban appropriate if author states he is refering to his time frame)? You belive 100% accuracy is possible? Just asking...
My take :
Run open visor, state your bkgnd and knowledge you post from for a certain aspect, do not pretend. State when you are quoting, by whom, his bkgnd, or when you are citing a web source makle it clear that you are doing just this. IMHO this is what is required of any decent person and more so of mil (or ex) mil personell (of whatever nation), so in doing so one cannot be way off. Requiring 100% accuracy (for morally integral persons) would kill any discussion and help.
This said, of cause mods are the gods (and I appreciate it, do not get me wrong, especially here as they do a great job obviously), and their word is law.

Just realized this only applied to the "joining the mil" section, was not clear from the thread title.
I agree, in this respect things have to be a bit more up-to-date (I unintentionally provided wrong - because outdated - info to a youngster some time ago and regret it).
My above post apllied to gnereal forum discussions.

I personally think it has nothing to do with being stricter. But more with getting or posting accurate up dated information.
But in hindsight the US Issue text books or Recruiting procedures, some do change every year, or are updated.
Therefore what was correct last year might of changed this year, I think a little tolerance should be shown in these cases.
Unless the individual is constantly Posting in that matter.
But hey this is your Show. The New Rule sounds good to me.

Just for sake of reference, From 2008-last month, I:
1) Served as a retention NCO for my Battery.
2) Worked as a Supply SGT within a BCT (Basic Training) Battery at FT Sill, OK.
Might not know everything and policies change on a regular basis. However, if anyone has any questions, I'll be happy to help out.
