    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
     
    Note:

Original post removed due to lack of verification of information. We cannot verify any of the accusations of the Doctors listed. This creates a legal dilemma so it has been removed and will be removed if it appears again.

Drop this talk about other members. Sorry you feel the site is going downhill. We still have guidelines. The radio show is not part of Hadit.com. It is independent and run by jbasser and Jerrel. I give them publicity here.

Everyone won't agree on many things, but the one thing we should agree on is that we are here so that no brother or sister veteran gets left behind, not on a jungle trail, not on a desert trail and not on a paper trail." Tbird

The biggest component of HadIt.com to help veterans is our very active discussion forum. Over 7500 (as of March 2011) registered users, with an average of about 200 posts per day. New Registrations average about 200 members per month.

Please note that the discussion forum is made up of veterans just like you, they come to HadIt.com and its discussion forum from all over the world. Some come to ask questions, some come to help do research for other vets, some to answer questions, others come for the sense of community that HadIt.com provides and still others come just to provide an ear and shoulder to those veterans who have become weary.

There are some folks who for whatever reason sign on to discussion forums to cause disruption. However, we still have this problem the best advice is ignore them; they want a fight, a response, don't give it to them. We have an ignore user feature, you can look up any member by name and click to ignore them.

New members posts are moderated and not visible to all members until the staff can review a few posts to make sure it is not a spammer, troll or some other divisive individual.

HadIt.com's discussion forum is "User Friendly" as long as posters do not cause division. We are not into censorship. We simply need to set forth some guidelines. These are aimed at maintaining harmony on the Web Forum.. When one person disrupts many then we feel it's time to take action.

Remember that most that come to our discussion forum have been wounded in one way or another. Be kind to each other, if angered take a day to respond. Personal attacks are not what we are about; we are about helping our brother and sister veterans.

@john999 my sincere apologies for what it looks like on this thread but you and none of ya'll except admins and mods have seen the threats sent to my hadit.com inbox by her for NO justifiable reason over an opinion I gave she didn't like yesterday. I asked her to stop there and privately repeatedly, called on the admins ot help and instead she continued and started airing it out here and on another thread. She's has messed with the wrong woman this time though because I WILL indeed handle this legally as i have every right too. I have been a member of these boards since 2015 and haven't bothered a soul. Bullying should not be tolerated and I won't personally allow it or put up with her behaviors unchecked. 

No crazy pills here in any way shape or form. This lady will soon find out I don't play silly internet games and mean EVERY word I uttered. She clearly decided to continue trash talking about me publicly and being a passive aggressive keyboard warrior bully even after I sent her a cease and desist letter outlining her harassing behaviors and cyberbullying and the next steps I would take. Now, she has indicated plans to report me to OGC for absolutely nothing. She has proof of nothing. No credible evidence exists because I haven't done anything whatsoever or that could even remotely pose a problem to my accreditation.

I was not involved with the root of this at all which is VA's suspect doctor list but she keeps making baseless ASSumptions because I expressed support for Alex for exposing the VA's wrong and unlawful internal practice here. I tried to explain to her privately that her energy is misdirected after she made her way to my inbox with threats but she became even more unhinged. If it had been the other way around, I would have likely been booted from this forum already but I'm glad an admin finally got on her about her behavior and threats.

Again, she has tried the wrong woman this time as she'll soon find out. The attempts to intimidate me are ridiculous, baseless and pretty asinine. I've actually been vetted by the VA OGC already both by my background/character/fitness and competency wise in veterans law. She can't say the same but to turn around and try to threaten my accreditation over absolutely nothing of any real substance after I even tried to help her despite her rudeness crosses every single line there is with me. Its unacceptable personally and professionally so my attorneys will my certainly handle this. She even tried to misrepresent herself as some type of attorney in my inbox trying so hard to protect Dr. Bash and his antics. I have a right to my opinion and if she can't respectfully disagree and move on then she deserves everything she has coming.

@Berta - I got emails about that link being posted so I removed for the reason  "We cannot verify the information, this information may currently be or soon to be involved in legal action."

Now you want to post it again after I specifically asked you not to post it. I asked for to not be posted because HadIt.com cannot verify the information. 

I don't know what you mean about taking my issues with you to Dr Bash. I responded to an email of his and also asked him to not post this on HadIt.com this is the same thing I asked everyone on here.

If you want to continue to post information about this put a link to your Facebook page on this thread and then post it all on Facebook.

There were "2" links, not just one.  The link to the VA website was one, the other link was to the Maryland Medical Board.  

"Its my opinion" (unsubstantiated) that the problem was not the VA website...its well known that VA raters dont like Dr. Bash..because his thorough exams result in extra benefits, and cost VA money.  

The Problem was with the "second link"..the one to the Maryland Medical Board.  When I went to the Maryland Board, I found this link (independently from the one cited in the post).  Based on the link below, and the discrepency from the posted link, "my opinion" was that the link in the post was probably "hacked" and not correct, while the one below is correct.  The Maryland Medical Board site "even says" their site is down due to a "technical problem", which is probably hackers.  Its my opinion that hadit members who posted this link probably did not know about this following link, which I made independently.  Further, its my opinion hacking had nothing to do with past or present hadit members.  But, its possible the "hacked" version was posted.

The Maryland board I search for said this:

In the original post there was one link to ask nods article. Regardless, legal action is being talked about. We do not have the resources to ferret out the actual truth of the matter. We do not need to be drug into this.

This account was originally shared with my husband who is/was a 100% PT disabled USMC veteran, silly. The profile now says nothing about me being a veteran but that I'm an accredited claims agent, obviously. Now you are truly reaching. You continue to defame me, beyond the inbox now, despite having been served with a cease and desist letter on tonight, March 6, 2022 that I can verify that you have received and read.

You will pay.

Lastly, I  don't need ANY teaching from you. I'm very, very good at what I do and I'm actually accredited. You can't say the same.

@Tbird you continue to allow this. I've addressed this privately and here she is at it again publicly. This is precisely why this forum is dying a slow death. Sad.

Vetquest- a little bird told me he is doing a radio show Thursday night.

So he is banned from part of hadit- not banned from the Radio show-

well it was a large bird----ha ha   

Camella -cease and desist letters are prepared by lawyers and they  usually are sent by priority mail or hand delivered by  someone , a courior, working for the firm. I know that because I worked for lawyers for 7 years. 

You are right, this site is going down hill-we lost some good people when Alex pulled some crap here the first time he got banned.

But this is a litigation issue and I have nothing more to say about that- not here, that is.😃

Anyone can send a cease and desist letter Mrs. self proclaimed "Pro-Se Attorney". You of all folks should know that. You will most defintely be receiving the cease and deist letter in the mail too and hearing from my attorney on these matters soon enough. You WILL pay. I play no games. I highly suggest you cease your cyberbullying me though like the coming legal action is a joke. How petty and nasty of a person you have shown you are when you dont get your way, eh? Your true colors are on display.

This simply boils down to the FACT that you are no better than anyone else on this forum just because you spend your life here , have posted for years and have the elder title but aren't accredited by the VA and don't actually handle claims. You have certainly lost ALL my respect. I'm just glad I have never associated myself with you. You're rude and a bully.

It is my opinion that Dr. Craig Bash is outright shady, lazy and unethical. I can both personally and professionally attest to this and have a mountain of evidence which backs up my statements. You would rather try and attack Alex and I though than see the truth. You would think that it would click that theres a reason he made the VA's blacklist. Whether they should have that list or not is a different story for a different day but he is by no means an angel. $10K or even $5K for ANY veterans nexus letter(s) is downright outrageous and predatory. You are no defender of veterans if you continue to defend these sleezy, shady antics. Real bad judgement call on your part. 

Point. Blank. Period.

bwhahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, I highly encourage you to report me to OGC or the Secretary or whoever else at the VA or in the entire damn world you want to. I've been nice and tried to be diplomatic but no more. Go ahead, Do it now. Don't wait. Copy me on it if you're so bold. My email address is carmella.george@va.gov. Copy all these conversations. silly. Tell the entire story. You have no real basis or no credible reports to OGC or anyone else dumbass. You're making baseless ASSumptions which I tried to help you and explain privately to no avail. There's absolutely nothing for OGC or anyone else to find on me and no reason for them to believe you or even protect you. You're a damn joke. Your harassment of me continues, pure and simple and you will pay for it in the long run.

I have been offline for COVID, not sick, just that lockdowns do not work well for someone with depressive disorder on top of medical conditions.  I logged on last night when I got an email from Hadit.  I have been looking at this forum and it looks like everyone needs to take a step back.  I do not believe someone posting a link would open Hadit to legal action, of course, it would not be the first time I was wrong.  That said I think some of these posts are very counterproductive.  As for SemperFiGeek, you did not earn the handle so let it go.

IF ANYONE HAS A COMPLAINT  THEN FILE ONE AGAINST WHO EVER YOU WANT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT,    THEN DO IT RIGHT AND NOT PUT THIS OUT ON HADIT THIS IS NOT WHAT HADIT IS ALL ABOUT

FILE YOUR COMPLAINT ON YOUR OWN FREE WILL BUT YOU DO NOT DO THAT HERE ON HADIT.

 If your complaint is about someone assisting with VA pension benefits, you should file your complaint through the Federal Trade Commission's complaint assistant link on the OGC accreditation and discipline webpage at http://www.va.gov/ogc/accreditation.asp.

 VA OGC will be immediately notified of every complaint filed through this link.  However, in addition to possible action by VA, by submitting your complaint through the Federal Trade Commission, it will also be accessible to other Federal and State law enforcement authorities for their possible investigation and prosecution.   ➢ If your complaint involves representation or claims assistance provided on a VA compensation claim (or another non-pension benefit) and you believe that other State and Federal laws and regulations apart from those involving VA accreditation may have been violated, you may also submit your complaint through the Federal Trade Commission's complaint assistant link on the OGC accreditation and discipline webpage at http://www.va.gov/ogc/accreditation.asp. ➢ If your complaint is against a VA-accredited attorney, claims agent, or VSO representative (please confirm VA-accreditation status on the accreditation search page at https://www.va.gov/ogc/apps/accreditation/index.asp) and you believe that your complaint only involves a violation of the standards of conduct for VA-accredited individuals or if you do not wish for other law enforcement entities to immediately be notified of your complaint, then you may file your complaint directly with the VA accreditation and discipline program by submitting your written complaint, and a completed VA Form 3288 (this form will allow us to disclose your name and the information contained in the complaint to the VA-accredited practitioner) to:

Source : Accreditation & Disclpline Program  office of Generl Counsel.
