It is also believed that Ministry of Defence officials want to stop criticism of defence policy on military chat forums like the Army Rumour Service.
Even if they got to the two CO's of ARRSE, do they honestly believe that the website wouldn't be back up in minutes, hosted from some somewhere like Tonga?
I, personally, absofcukinglutely guarantee that if the MOD ever try to take down ARRSE that I will personally contact every mate I have in every far flung country that they have decided to go and live in so that they can molest children, in order to bring ARRSE back. And provide them with the finances to do so (along with several other ARRSERS I would have thought)
The internet can not be stopped, it isn't a single "place" or " organisation" and can't be turned off. I would have thought the MOD would have been glad about ARRSE. Informed views, none military censored opinions, no breached of OPSEC through their own members loyalty etc, etc.
Whats up MOD, too afraid for the troops to have their own sounding board that highlights YOUR failures that gets OUR TROOPS killed?
Try it you tw*ts. There will be so many servers from so many countries that chasing them will be like painting the Forth Bridge. And that will be in between explaining to the likes of TND why you have gagged the trooops (and the secrecy b0llocks will never wash, I've been a member since the beginning and can't recall ONE operationally sensitive comment being released).
