    Maybe the intention is to interact with other people about the topic. Have you considered that?

    So have you ever served in the military before Jim?

    ...See what I did there?

    During one of the DX contests this year I worked two stations at the same time. I heard Japan and Brazil pretty much on top of each other (I don't think they heard each other). I replied once, they both gave me their signal reports, I gave my signal report back once to both of them and that was it.

    Next time I'll strive for 3. Are there any awards for me?

    just a couple of quick questions -

    Are we to believe you asked why people were "treating him like he has former military service" for the sole purpose of social interaction?

    And since when did posting on an Internet forum rise to the level of social interaction?

    Yes, isn't online internet forums intended for the purpose of social interaction with others?

    Since the phrase "social media" describes it as such.

    Nah, its mostly for one-way personal ranting.

    I think some might more accurately characterize that as anti-social.

    Theories of interpersonal socialization of radio amateurs on internet forums are fronted here.
