I'm keen to do that, PM me!


It's just painful, there is no need for it, no one wants to read or skip the same post three or four times, just to get to the new bit of the conversation. If you are responding to someone a few posts back, grab the pertinent bit of the post and address that point, but don't just use the quote button to reply. For starters, it will just get deleted. Secondly, you won't annoy the admins, who do the deleting.

Brotherhood never was like it;
Friendship is not the word;
But deep in that body of marching men
The soul of a nation stirred.

AusMilitary.com is Australia's leading military discussion forum. Originally formed back in 2004 as AusSpecialForces.com as a forum for, by, and about the Australian Special Forces, the forum has since widened it's scope to include all members and branches of the ADF as well as our honoured guests and allies from overseas. Despite some sections being open to the public, the forum still enjoys the membership and advice of respected members of the Special Forces and Special Operations Forces both local and international, as well as those from elite specialities in the conventional forces. From recruit training right up to SF selection tips - if it's frank and honest advice you're after, you'll find it here.
