Is ARRSE next?

#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.

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.

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.

The Army should be blocking www.arse.com, but the Navy and Air Force shouldn't.

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. ;)

Flash, Mrs Caine wanted some info. And no, she isn't a fat bird, at least that's what she told me to say ;)

Quite frankly: If they block Rear Party, they ought to be shot.

They should be actively encouraging squaddies to have a look and get their wives involved... there's a hod of support there for OH's whose blokes are on tour... just see how many "days to do" banners they post. I am disgusted at the shortsightedness. Encourage the site as much as possible... it's a great way to keep wives in contact after they've been shuttled about after their hubbies. Rant not over... I am annoyed.

I think it's probably as Lucky_Jim suggests. Autoblocking from the software and not a conspiracy to further reduce moral.

Maybe if it was flagged up to the IT bods who run it, it could be sorted?
