That’s a very broad brush from a fairly limited number of data points. I can confirm there are many LCols and above that will not hesitate to use the disciplinary and administrative systems.Our current crop of Colonels and Lieutenant-Colonels, and their supporting CWOs, have been infected by the same / raised in the same culture of zero accountability, being too afraid and too incomptent in HR to use the remedial measures system. It was a Maj (now currently serving LCol) and an MWO that were too spineless to support me in putting a WO on remedial measures when I was a Pl Comd, then when they were finally on board it was a LCol and RSM who lacked any spine and decided to just post the problem, that caused me to pursue my CPA as a mechanism to release. Had nothing to do with GOFOs.
Get rid of all the GOFOs all you want, I don't think much changes.
It is either you experienced a weak CoC or the reasons your wanted to pursue administrative actions were simply not justified in the end (while it is possible, two levels questioning proposed administrative measures is perhaps a sign that what you were proposing was not appropriate). Every story has a couple of versions. We only get to know yours.
