Is ARRSE next?

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by SamCaine, Jan 24, 2007.

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. I've just discovered that the MOD IGS is blocking RearParty (www.rearparty.co.uk). A less controversial forum site I have never come across! :frustrated:

    Is ARRSE (and it's cousins) next I wonder? :thumbdown:
     
  2. They are having a laugh. What will I do all day at work if I cant get on Arrse?


    The moral police are out to destoy us
     
  3. Can't see it being blocked as most of the hierarchy read the site to find out what's "really" going on . . .
     
  4. I think the powers that be believe that if you quieten the troops the real problems with the forces will disappear! Fat chance of that, I hope. They should be sitting up and taking note of the issues and actioning them instead of sitting with their heads in the sand and thumbs up the arrse!!!!
     
  5. They've done it at my work now as well. I can't get on rearparty, but I can still get on Arrse thankfully.
     
  6. Why block rearparty!?
     
  7. Just a thought, but is it some over-zealous anti-porn software blocking out the word 'rear'?

    I think I remember a similar example when the website of Scunthorpe Council got blocked. By Scunthorpe Council.
     
  8. Well Scunthorpe does contain the word Thorpe and that is always embarrassing!!
     
  9. A very good thought. As an experiment I just tried http://www.rear.com/ and that was instantly blocked. I don't even know if such a site exists, honest guv!

    It also blocks a bunch of flight simmimg sites because they're 'gaming' sites. IGS - putting the **** back into analysis.
     
  10. I guess its marginally better than putting the sis back into ****, although on reflection maybe not!!
     

  11. It's offensive to non fat people.
     
  12. Bizarrely www.arse.co.uk isn't blocked. Can't beat a bit of consistency. Perhaps consistency isn't a good choice of word when discussing rear and arse ;)
     
  13. The Army should be blocking www.arse.com, but the Navy and Air Force shouldn't.
     
  14. Sam, just a quick question mate.

    Why are you trying to get to rearparty?


    If it's fat birds you are after, there are plenty on here. ;)
     
  15. I'm on an Air Farce network :(
