Are we saying too much on ARRSE / PPRUNE etc

Discussion in 'Aviation' started by mpsman, Jan 18, 2006.

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:

  1. Just came across this:

    Remember chaps and chapesses - Careless Talk Costs . . . . . Tut Tut Tut

    The full artical can be found at
  2. But sometimes 'careless talk etc, etc' can highlight issues that wouldnt see the light of day and may be brushed under the carpet. Double edged sword.
  3. mpsman............I dont think that OPSEC is a major problem on this or our sister website. Most (not all) people are aware of the security implications when they post. The Apache issue is well known by just about every aviator in the Corps and with the other 3 services. It is a shameful waste of resources by the Corps in allowing these extremely qualified individuals to leave without making some sort of effort to retain them.
  4. Journalists are quite happy to make up this kind unattributed quote to support their "story" if they can't get it from ARRSE/PPrunE. They, like anyone else, do not know who it is they are quoting or whether that person has any sort of relevant knowledge or credibility. So if the veracity of their story is challenged (something the MoD Press Office sadly seems to do all too rarely), they need to be prepared to correct or retract. Too late you may argue, but if left unchallenged we give them licence to print anything they like.

    CONNEACH - just because it was in the papers, don't make it true! Sadly (and while supporting Flash's sentiments), the danger of ARRSE is that a few unguarded comments about AH pilots on ARRSE becomes "an issue well known about by just about every aviator in the Corps and with the other 3 Services." Just because it is on ARRSE or PPrunE, also don't make it true!
  5. Just because it appears in the press, doesn't mean that the reptiles got it from here either....
  6. Im with you on that one flash!!!
