Question for you, if I close my eyes and count to ten what are the chances of this post still being here when I open them?

I was going to ask why by email to one of the CO's but seeing as you've asked.....

.....any MOD going to fess up and at least give a reason?

Same as the NHS and the Foreigners got pulled i suppose. Looks like we're not allowed to upset the johnny foreigner on arrse either :roll:

As the site becomes more commercial it becomes less contriversal (sp?)

The CO's will say if you don't like it sod off.

In their defence, if the journo's got hold of that thread, the backlash on arrse as a website would be detrimental to all users. Don't particularly agree with it but suppose they're watching there arrses.

Just about any thread in the NAAFI would do what you suggest above.

Some maybe, but not the majority. With the current climate of all things muslim, think they may just be watchinh their backs. Like i said, i personally think it should still be up, but like to hear what the mod's say first.

I guess in the hands of the PC brigade it could be deemed as inciting Racial hatred, funny that as a few of the comments were based around such types.

Forces humour not for general consumption me thinks.

Thats maybe because forces humour is what "British humour" used to be before we all became too scared to laugh at anything in case someone found it to be offensive. It's a sad sad country we live in nowadays.

Cant we call them stills and start a thread slagging them....after all, we called the bennys stills after they complained!!! :D

Mate,

That's exactly what the thread was about, the fact that we are all shit scared of offending the muslim community when the majority of them probably wouldn't be offended by half of it. And that all this Islamophobia is driven not by the muslim community in the main, but by those in positions of power in this country.


.......like our mod who deleted the thread because it was too hard just to delete the one or two offending posts....... :roll:

Don't get me wrong, was just playing devils advocate as nothing is coming from the mod's as it looks. It was no worse than you would hear on a lot of tv programmes. If the disclaimer is put up saying may cause offence then why take it down?

Have you considered that may have had no choice in the matter, if they receive a certain number of complaints about a post they may HAVE to take it down...MODs is that true?

i noticed a few weeks ago when the person we,re not allowed to mention thread got pulled,that the site is getting very p.c.shame really because i thought this site was the dogs gonads until a few weeks ago. :cry: i think journo,s tread a bit more carefully after that tree hugging guardian lesbian got a load of hassle for quoting from the naafi bar.(waiting how long my post will stand before it gets the chop from the thought police.)
