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. Hmmm... Not sure if criticism of google is fair in this case... If a search result gets censored they are going to make this clear to the user.... Yahoo gave the Chinese information on an email user who ended up getting thrown in jail - Gmail won't be offered to the Chinese as google don't want to breach their privacy agreement... Also, don't forget Microsoft don't allow the word 'democracy' to appear in the headline of their chinese blogs... (all this from an Economist article)...

    I say Google still ain't evil...
