I know this is an old thread, but can someone explain to me what this Bloggins joke is about? I feel like I'm missing out on something funny here :(.

This topic has nothing to do with "something funny"

I know this is an old thread, but can someone explain to me what this Bloggins joke is about? I feel like I'm missing out on something funny here :(.

Wow, blast from the past. Whatever happened to these numpties?
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

At least on the disciplinary side, I'd be willing to bet that there were some administrative measures here.

Sounds lame but I find myself constantly using this case as an example/teachable moment for soldiers and social media.

A big irony here was that the crap Cpl bloggins would post wasn't actually that harsh or disparaging. The comments from everyone else was the brutal stuff. Soldiers got warned if they "liked" a post they would face consequences.   CoC overstepping their boundaries  IMO.

Labour laws in Canada offer strong protection from employers who ask job seekers for personal information such as social media passwords, lawyers said. Rules in the U.S. are much more lax, they said, citing several cases in which prospective hiring managers have asked candidates to turn over their login information as part of the vetting process

Policy is more than black and white.  We need to not only understand the spirit of why a policy was written, but also how the policy affects people.

In a lovely display of irony some members of the bloggins gang seem upset that the news isn't covering the alleged threats, posting on funeral pages by someone "pretending" to be "bloggins" (which in itself is ironic), impersonating SNCOs and Officers and making fake accounts by someone they initially were making fun of.

They're upset at, get this, at being harassed  :'(  Someone suggested that the woman involved with the homophobia and individual harassment "brought it on herself". What an awesome mind set. 

I'm sure any CF member involved with this will get a 129 slap on the wrist and sent on their way without some serious career speed-wobbling  :nod:

I know both of the women involved and they are definitely crusaders, and as such do bring much legitimate criticism on themselves. That said, I know that wasn't what you or likely that person meant. There is no need to attack them or their families. Not only is it unethical, and just plain mean, the spouse who is still in is very active in policy surrounding transgendered  CAF members, Op Honour, etc. Attacking her, and her family,  will merely ensure she fights harder to institute all the changes they hate.

I really wish we could afford to get rid of these types of asshats before they do crap like this but it is rarely possible or even viewed as desirable these days. You have a knuckle dragging ******* who is reasonably good at his job? Promote him because it will take 10 years to replace him. Even if they arent good at their job it is hard to get rid of them. We used to just not offer them new terms of service but a new CANFORGEN came out saying we can't refuse further TOS based on conduct or competency. As units have a harder and harder time meeting their mandates, they will be less willing to deal harshly with people who need to be dealt with. The fact is a large percentage of soldiers, sailors and airmen are neither well trained, disciplined, well led or representative of the military ethos but they have that one crucial thing units everywhere need: the are a body. If I look around my work space, I could probably pick 40% of the people that should be replaced in a ideal situation but without those 40% we can't even maintain a duty crew with any sense of sane scheduling.

Just to be sure I'm clear are we talking about the women who were so pissed off at the Cpl Bloggins webpage that they lied and made fake Cpl Bloggins web pages (pretending to be Cpl Bloggins) and began making homophobic and anti-trans personal attacks and attacking the families of dead Canadian soldiers ALL to try and get Cpl Bloggins in crap? To frame them?  Kind of ****ed up of them if their spouse is, as you say, active in trans policy.

Were they ever punished for that?
