They are a product of the system. Thus tend to take it personally.The problem I see is that a lot of these people missed the mark entirely about what's being said and what is being asked of RMC. They are taking something personally, when it's definitely directed at the systemic.
One would think…MGen Bernard did something foolish without realizing the follow on effects; but honestly, the greater problem is that enough RMC Grads, serving or otherwise, are getting their hackles up over the suggestion that RMC might need some tweaking. I dunno about these folks, but I would think improving the standing and calibre of people coming out of my Alma Mater would be something g to welcome, not get pissy about on LinkedIn for the whole world to see....
However if Lt or Capt Bloggins posts it, it’s doesn’t have a lot of weight. Someone who is a MG probably should understand that their words/text are going to carry more weight, and being a GO/FO they are expected to understand that, and anticipate what their comments might do.
Frankly the CAF would be better suited to ensuring it’s officer corps doesn’t have a Linked In profile - and definitely not GOFO’s as they should not be be out fishing in the job market or trolling networks.
