I like this site. I like to keep abreast of current affairs. I find that I prefer to read "news" in a "debate-style" format. Much of the news is about the "war on terrorism" and I prefer to hear the opinions of those on "the shop-floor". So, when I log on to ARRSE, the first thing I do is to read the latest news articles. If, after reading a selection of opinions, I feel there is something I wish to add to the debate, I would do so. But, more often than not, the opinion that I have has already been expressed. So then I move to the humourous stuff (probably more my level) and tend to post in that thread. So ............. what do you get out of ARRSE????????
