To whom it may concern

Though I know I'm guilty of many a profanity and the occasional row I must admit I think BOOTWU makes good points here.

To be honest I don't usually check which forum it is when I comment, but agree that some 'house rules' should be stuck to, hopefully not by enforcement but as a matter of courtesy and mutual consent. It generally seems to work on ARRSE.

So long as there's a forum where we can have a good row and swear like fuck now and then I'll certainly try to keep it clean.

Fair enough, have to agree with you there, though my mental pic of BOOTWU is now of a pipe smoking, flat cap wearing, Rover owner with a bin liner over his head and an orange up his arse, you cant argue with the rules he’s pointed out. But can I say that the self-depreciating humour of some, the whit of others and the absurd of many has given me plenty to laugh about over what has been a crap 12 months, and I hope this self-flagellation doesnt change things too much.

You twat.

Serious Head on.

At the risk of sounding like a grown-up grandfather (sometimes age and/or the OH, obliges even me to act like one) am I alone in concluding that several of the recent posts in the supposedly more serious forums verge towards, if not beyond, the repugnant and are thus stifling discussion?

Besides the inevitable/allowable thread drift there seems to be an eagerness of late to descend into irrelevant, expletive-ridden, chat-line-jousting by some of those who really ought to know better.

No, I don’t want to be a (noted-more-by-their-absence-than-appearance) Moderator, (I thang yew furry mush for the offer if there ever was one ) but whatever you think of me/this post I am only motivated in wanting whatevers best for RR and for all of those who use it.

Sooo - Before giving my little bleat a good ignoring-to please at least hoist in this contribution of 30 months ago from one of Rum Ration’s finest posters – That khaki-wearing cadet-commissioned Cellarman who sometimes even wears his own serious head:



No smilees today but, as those of us of the Trade used to say:

“Deep down you know it makes sense.”


Bob


PS Bob's other Quote of the Day:

"Self-restraint is very similar to self-abuse; but, like all D-I-Y, it's a tad more difficult for some folk."

I agree with you Bob. I can't admit that i'm whiter than white when it comes to abuse on other threads, but i do try to keep the abuse to Lil's.

Oh and calling me one of RR's finest posters. I'm not sure if that's a compliment or not. Either way if ever we meet, i'll bum you.

I have been visiting this site for five years now and cannot remember it being much different to what it is today.Yes,there were a few more posters at times in the past but the standard of debate on the serious threads was no better for it and we are enjoying the same old shit on Lils as today as then.On reflection the behaviour of some of the contributors back in the day left plenty to be desired and I recall weary Mods having to apply the ultimate sanction of banning individuals for persistant abuse of the rules or labelling them Oxygen Thief.These then are the halcyon days that some wish to return to.
As others have pointed out the forum is only as good as the folk that patronise it whatever rules are in place.

Well, I have a little 'pop up' thingy (stop sniggering at the back!) that say who is on line - I have to say that I don't recognise 95% of the call signs. So why don't you tossers contribute by, well, contributing? Don't just sit there reading - join in! You might like it as Jimmy Savil said to the CENSORED

I pretty much agree with most of what fishhead posted.

It's like that fucking cunt thingy is back and the Rat is crying and screaming like a rejected poof, "I'm not a bad man, honest".

Bob has a point, CA's on RR is shite and some helmets need to take a marching pause before posting in it.

What the rat is actually saying is shouldn't you be preparing to be a fuckin johnny foreigner, and I'm surveying the wall prior to rebuild.
And not a bad man...if only you knew.

Look lads wits new job since leaving the Andrew.
School inspector.
He's dropped by, concurred with Bob the head master that we are a way ward lot,
Handed out stars to the favorite few, and pointed out the failures of the naughty.
and told us it wasn't like that when he was at this school.

Rum Ration has so many striking similarities to Royal Naval Detention Quarters, the most outstanding at present being that its full of Innocent Fuckers.

A clarification as to whether Newbies is a seriouse thread or not would be enlightening.
Oh what fun we ALL had in there.

Rummers could be their seadad/D.O. so they'd have to speak to him before joining. Might have a negative impact on site members though.

So whats all the fuss about?? Some people crayoning in CA etc ... yeah I've probably been guilty of that in the past but that begs the question if some of the post(s) in question should be in CA at all and should perhaps have been consigned to The Barge or DL's in the first place. As for some of the Newbies ... makes me cringe thinking that some of them could be actually charged with the defense of the realm in later life ... there is no hope! We're doomed I tell you!

But back on thread ... Rorkes Drift ...........

Like I told the skipper, you can fuck off with that idea, it sounds like something a fuckin sludger would say.
I was going to say "think" then I realised how silly that would be.

You're right Rummers, I wasn't thinking straight. You looking after newbies would be like JS looking after kids, they'd be corrupted beyond redemption.

I like to think more on the lines of "prepared" for life.
Trouble is I keep getting it in the neck from the pink and fluffies.

If it wasn't for the likes of you, me, Sumo, BR, Sharkey et al, the pink and fluffies would'nt have any reason to fire their bus up. Even the daily Wail would cease circulation.

Thank you Wrecks that means something to me.
Just what I haven't yet worked out.

There are two or three on here who mainly only totter fwd out ouf the gloom when Finks waves his bonnet on a stick, the posts usualy amount to little more than name calling and expletive riddled rants with little constructive comment (IMO), I've read a couple of comments to day that amount to little more than personal abuse and to me are worse than the "banter" that is currently being frowned on.

Talking of Jimmy Savile, I bought one of his shell suits. Its fuckin crap, the top is adult size, but you have to squeeze into kids bottoms.
