You think RR's bad, try Arrse.

RR gets a fair amount of slagging but what's going on over on ARSSE?

More outings on the outrage bus than than the national express could ever hope to cope with.

Your bessie mates oppos long lost oppos cat dies and it gets a RIP thread.

You spend more time playing "spot the squaddie" than "spot the walt" when you visit there.

Judging from recent posts, 95% of members are either, civil service or coppers.

Slagging someone down seems more important than contributing to a debate.

Mention anything, however obscure, that criticises the Government and you get the internet "corrective thinking" brigade descend upon you for a re- education session,

The internet "corrective thinking" dept aka ashie and co always take decent threads off on a tangent to deviate criticism.

It's becoming a parody of it's self,

ARRSE is a great site, what's going on?

It is getting a little too big I think. Wayt back (watch that lamp!) it had good, stimulating, topics of general or mil themes. Now it is a shouty playground with those who can swear the most seeming to think they have won. And god is there some real armchair Admiral/General/RAF Sgts on there who seem to know so much that I am surprised they haven't been sought out by MoD to solve all the problems.

Still some funny threads make it through tho.

Like many good things Arrse is going through a spell where it is being overwhelmed by its own success. Because it was so good, it has attracted so much dross that it is struggling to get decent threads going.

This is not helped by some of the original members doing nothing but moan about the old times instead of producing good stuff themselves.

On balance, the good still outweighs the bad, but it is in danger of going under.

RR had a phase where good posters were driven away by poor or overhanded moderation. Thankfully that seems to have lightened up a bit now. Arrse has the same happening now but it is the poor poster that is causing the issues. That is a more difficult thing to change.

Just an influx of mongs; they'll get bored with it before the regulars and bugger off shortly. Unfortunately it's now full of pensioners who've just figured out how to use the computer and believe that arrse is an outlet for their national service stories, American pissy hissy fit throwing homos and chavs out for a wind-up.

Pity this place doesn't have a higher through-put of posts as it has some belting dits (for a group of hot-bedding woofters anyway :D )

Look on the bright side, it could be worse; it could be full of Pongos :bball:

'Kinnel JJ........ never thought of that. Perce arriving in 'Lils mob-handed is an evil thought. I'd better hide my wallet somewhere that they'd never think of looking.

I know I'll hide it under the soap.......safe as houses.

I have noticed that the site has become a bit camp. All since a pair of foxhole sharing baboon arrsed, pirate wannabes have been curious how the other side lives.

You,re quite right old fruit, there are even some Newspaper snobs on my home site who deem it rather non "U" to read the "Wail "or the "Telling-Graph" plus one or two more of the national dailies. I,ve seen some APPALING comments from these fellows that have left me feeling quite faint to the extent that I,ve had to imbibe several G&Ts to steady myself before ploughing on. Still, it really is the best site by far and I think many of you chappies from the Maritime world should drop in more often, you never know it may add some class to an otherwise unworldy slobbering match. Chin Chin!!.
 
It's a cyclical thing. Good becomes famous becomes infamous becomes inundated becomes diluted becomes stagnant becomes revitalised becomes good...

ARRSE is now in the diluted phase, so there is hope...

...hence why you drifted across here?! :wink:

And welcome, by the way. :thumbleft:

Yes, I thought there might be a few grown-ups and less outrage and Walt-hunting (which has become rather tiresome) over here.

And thank you kind Sir, for your welcome!

Grown ups!!! How very dare you :twisted: And welcome to the site but watch for SPB, he's plod but don't tell anyone :wink:
 
Welcome aboard Legs. Quite a few ARRSERs seem to be migrating here although several of us RR natives also frequent 'the other place', especially when there's a decent thread running.
