Choosing a moniker which is similar in either sound or spelling as a moderator or administrator is strictly forbidden.

Regarding actions of moderators and administrators:

The forum is no place to air out your opinion or be judgmental of our staff and its capabilities.

All BKF users agree not to abuse or mistreat moderators or administrators. It is against BKF rules to post any information regarding bans or any other action taken by a member of the moderating or administrative team. If you wish to discuss bans or warnings please do so via PM. To place a complaint against a moderator, send a PM to a super moderator. All Moderators are equal, any decision made by a moderator must be adhered to. If a moderator tells you something you do not like, do not go to another moderator looking for a different answer. If you are caught doing this you will be banned. The moderators work as a team and respect the decisions made by their peers and will help enforce them unless an administrator tells them differently.
If you have an issue with how the forum is run, then notify one of our administrator and we will look into the situation. We have in the past and still do appreciate any input that you offer this forum. But critical input and/or judgmental postings towards the staff will result in you getting banned.


Should you find a thread offensive or out of line, then notify a Mod in a PM so they can evaluate the situation and do the action deemed necessary.

  • There is Hope (for jobs)

    I am now officially a US Gov employee. Last year I hedged my bets and decided that this was the best way to go insofar as stability. My job is not glamerous but I don't give a damn. At my age, I need as close to stable as I can get. Any hint of consolidations, or layoffs and I'm useless....stressed...miserable.

    I spent countless hours/days filling out applications for both private sector as well as gov. jobs. It was a very long & disheartening process. It consumed me. But I finally lucked out.

    So just keep trying. That's all I can say because that is what I did....kept pressing on. I was either well qualified or over qualified for most of the jobs I applied to and often did not even receive an interview (which pixxed me off big-time!). Never having experienced a market like this, I was at the lowest of my mental professional lows.

    It is true that for gov. jobs it helps to be a veteran, or a spouse of a vet, or a vet with a disability rating BUT civilians do get in too. If you have the qualifications & experience they are looking for, it's totally possible.

    Just keep trying.

        Grats on the job. Yes you now have stability. A government job is all that 'Bammy has been able to produce, but he's doing a bank up job of it. Two other jobs with stability are, bk lawyers, and morticians. 'hub

            Well that is what is the most important fact of all. You have to be behind getting a job, it is something you really need to want because your own pressure in finding a new job is essential for getting one and for showing others that you are the perfect candidate for their company.

            I think not enough people have the drive and the courage to stand up for themselves to show that they are the best and the only opportunity to hire!

              It seems everyone wants to blame the government because there are no jobs. I have been laid off 4 times in my life and there may be another one coming (hopefully not).

              I can guarantee one thing if I get laid off. I WILL find a job and it won't be because of anything a politician or anyone else does or doesn't do.

              People need to take responsibility for themselves and stop blaming the government for everything!!!!
