Is there any sense in internet forums?

#1
There are so many internet forums, it's hard to believe. Unfortunatletly, a fair number of them seen to have degenerated into "lookammee" stages for certain members to profile themselves. I don't think that was the original concept.

With regard to military websites, military.com started off as a mouthpiece for the armed forces of the US, but comparatively quickly turned into the military wing and voice of the Republican party.

So how do you preserve a sort of "middling" political attitude on military websites, in spite of the pressure of right-wing groups to tilt the balance?

I suppose it depends how you define right wing and left wing.

For me, right wing is a perception by others of people who voice their own views. Left wing is a perception of people who profess to share the views of others.

That's why ARRSE, which is so middle of the road that it should have a white line running down the centre of the page, is probably perceived as being right wing although any military organisation worth its salt must be socialist (i.e. left wing) in order to work.



The People's flag is brightest red, etc. If any proof were required...

A very good question and well presented. Hopefully someone a lot more cleverer than me will be along shortly to give you a succinct and decent answer.

Unfortunately, it won't be me, because like young Mr Carrots, I couldn't give a shit.

How about if the people with opposing views bothered their arrses to post an equal amount of rubbish? or are you saying that the Mods are right wing?

At least with ARRSE you get conflicting views..sometimes just to create joyful chaos and anarchy.

At any one time there's at least 5 fights going on, it's fecking great!

Anything on the Internet is open to mongaloids, nutters and fuck wits. So anything on the internet is to be taken with a pinch of salt.
As for preserving a "sort of middling political attitude" on military websites......I personally don't really want to see political opinions on military websites. If I wanted to see politics, I would go to a political website.

I will however make an exception as far as the Labour party are concerned as they have quite happily ruined the UK for their own personal agendas. So I am quite happy to slag the Labour party, Blair and Brown off for the fuck wittery mongaloids they are.

Each to their own I suppose.

For example, if a guy states on a British Army forum that his immediate family were murdered by British soldiers in Northern Ireland then obviously that would generate some strong replies.

Isn't that right Bugsy, you lying bog trotting cunt?

Some people have even been known to tell lies about the army 'murdering; their entire families and how they were drug traffickers. Fuck off Mick, there's a good lad.

I'm not convinced it's 'Trousers O'Flame' but he might simply have switched ISP.
