Me thinks (O2 thief tag and all) that in the last few months Arrse has been infiltrated by certain bots whose only aim is to plant 'ideas' and notions on the site and otherwise stifle freethink and free conversation. Most of these names bear the familiar phraseology of some of the utterly mindlessly numb things you would read in the comment section of the Washington Post or the Politico.com site. This is most prevalent in the Multinational Forum. I know I will be accused of being one thing or other. But back in the day when I came here, discussion was more independent and less about party talking lines. Is there a concerted effort by powerful forces to water down Arrse?
