How can you close down a website like DRUDGE?

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. Any ideas from the ARRSE boffins?
     
  2. What about BOTNET?

    Unfortunately, it is the price one pays for democracy and freedom of speech.

    There is no law to prevent that feckwit doing what he did, just the knowledge that it is morraly bankrupt.

    If I were you, I would get a plane ticket, find out where he lives and curl one out on his doorstep. But you get arrested for that.

    Life - just ain't fair, is it?

    Seriously though - you can't unless he has broken the law - which he hasn't.
     
  4. Ask the pakistani goverment, they might be able to help
     
  5. Can't we plant some dodgy anti-Muslim cartoons on his site?

    Or claim he's called his pet hamster Muhammed?
     
  6. How about just sending lots of fake stuff?
     
  7. Drudge is American, so they could show anything as long as it's not illegal, ie child porn, rape, murder ect.
     
  8. but if we all send stuff could it overload them?
     
  9. Drudge is mostly nothing more than a collection of links to other stories trawled from other sources.

    Drudge was just a loser with a PC until he got lucky by breaking the Monica Lewinski/Bill Clinton story.

    All he did was recycle the story broken by an Aussie bottom feeding Celeb publication ( & read exclusively by mongs so before that nobody noticed) that was not included in the embargo agreement.

    Actually it is quite amazing the news blackout lasted as long as it did.

    Aye, if you want that you would need to host the site in Belguim... :twisted:
     
  11. What if we place Drudge on armynet?
     
  12. I,m a great advocate of Press Freedom, so, that being the case would Mr Drudge please print my riposte to his "Outing of Prince Henry.

    Mr Drudge, you are Sir, nothing more than a Journalistic Whore and a thouroughbred Mongrel, you understand nothing of Honour or the ethic of Service not Self, His Royal Highness is a serving Soldier, sworn under his Oath Of Aliegence to serve Her Majesty, Her Heirs and Successors, and the Officers set over him. Have you ever tried it? I think probably not sir, the very idea must be anathema to you and your scribbling ilk. I have nothing but the most utter contempt for your efforts to generate Dollars with your miserable "Scoop", be damned to you sir, you and and your house, may the fleas of a thousand camels infest your beard, and your wifes. I bid you good day, you ink stained slag
     
  13. You need to work on your ripostes. :D
     
  14. I bow to your superior wisdom great lord.
