Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    I've added a few more ant-spam features to the ARRSEpedia which should protect us against bots, etc.

    These will
    • Block the use of certain div tags that they use to hide their links
    • Block certain user agents
    • Added a vast array of sites/words which are forbidden from URLs
    • Added simple captcha protection for creating users and certain types of edits (URLs) - please note that sysops miss out on this!

    I'll need feedback on how this is working so will be grateful on any thoughts please.
     
  2. BC, being a technophobe I don't understand a word - but your Uncle Stalky still thinks that you are a Great Man.

    I gloat! Hear me!
     
  3. I thought you were trying to get rid of the Americans again.
     
  4. we'll get rid of the american type spams later.

    All for anything that gives us a break from the last spamming cnut. He was persistent!

    ps many thanks to everyone who DIDN'T blackball my sysopsness.
