OCB has been attacked by a Facebook troll because we have posted to show our respects to Australian servicemen that have fallen overseas.

Here is the post, we believe was inspired by our memorial post regarding the loss of our 40th serviceman in Afghanistan, CPL Cameron Stewart Baird.

Is this really appropriate? I had a quick look at your site...full of gamer shite. I think fantasy gaming and real deaths in combat don't mix, he wasn't a member of your online gaming Battalion was he? (I doubt it) he was a member of a real one! and actually died in combat and won't be 'respawned'.

That's right, it is full of gamer shite, because it's a gaming community Einstein.

Let me also state this for the record that our gaming community contains a healthy number of current and former ADF members, some of whom have operational service in the MEAO and Timor Leste. These members are OR's, SNCO and Officers. Some of our members have recently lost close friends overseas, and we do have members who are in REAL Battalions, Squadrons and Regiments, various corps and two branches of the ADF (Army and RAAF), so to the Facebook troll we say this...

Before firing your comments off, stop and have a think about WHO you might be paying out on, because now, to us at least, you look like a bloody goose. I'd recommend you stay off our site if it doesn't suit you.

If you do or have served Mr Troll, pull ya head in and engage brain before engaging fingers on keyboard.

i posted that pic on my facebook site also, people like that are below my contempt. The closest they come to death is roast chicken.
forum flamers for no good reason because they are bored and have no respect for any thing, they can get mucked as far as im concerned.

Gotta love armchair hero's, oxygen thieves and organ donors. Reminds me of some one eyed schmuck throwing food at us when I got home from deployment. Some people just need to be "retrained".
