are other people becoming fed up with ARRSE contributors; particularly 2 types of posters are gripping my sh!t:

1. 'The who can be first to copy and paste a news story from the BBC/SKY website?'

- oooohh aren't you clever with your grasp of current affairs

2. The RIP fella / condolences to F&F / chad latin quote.

- we've all lost mates on ops, yet i've never felt the need to 'RIP fella' anybody, least of all somebody not known to me!

Guilty as charged on the second one fella.
I don't do it because I am emotionally incontinent (another thread), but because I feel it is important to express my own dismay at another life lost. Also, I know these threads give some comfort to relatives who may log in here occasionally - that is good enough for me. If it grips your shit, I can live with that.

If you post a news link, at least have the intelligence to comment on it.

As for the condolence threads - tough. They are important

I would like to offer my condolences to Goon_bde, for the tragedy of him not liking some threads.

If you would like to reply to this post, and add your name to the list, I'm sure his friends and family would appreciate it.

The former comment doesn't need any comment clicky ...blah blah blah

Ref the second, please don't get me wrong, i feel for the friends and family and agree that any loss of life is a tradegy.

But the mindless "RIP Fella" is just a step away from the 'city of liverpool grieving together' or the 'funeral of the people's princess' when a nation grieved.

I just feel that is somebody wants to pay theirt condolences it should have a little more meaning...eg. "i remember when me and smudge joined up in '93, we were in the same Tp. He was a great mate and friend"

I disagree. We all made a choice to become soldiers, therefore the loss of a comrade is felt strongly because that individual also made the same choice.

No-one chose to become a scouser.

On the first point, we could all go trawling around the net for the latest hot-off-the-press stories, and spend hours rumaging through them for something noteworthy enough to matter to ARRSE, and many do. Not everyone has time to and keeps their digital ear to the ground on ARRSE instead. Some articles require no comment, and it is left to the venerable members to discuss. Others, one feels free to make a point about said article at time of posting, and if no link is provided, the first 15 responses to the thread always include the words "Link please".

On the second point, family and friends DO read these threads and the heartfelt condolences of ARRSE contributers can go a long way.

Rack off and find something worthy of moaning about, like the warts on your mum's arssehole that keep putting me off.

Referring to a thread in the RLC formum about the Stan and the recent coverage to 23 Pnr and the Mercian Regt, the sky reporter states that casualties are higher than ww2.

I've also heard this on the beeb and other reports...what exactly does this mean and how have they generated the stats?

edited to ad sky quote


With casualties running at higher than the Second World War, there is a feeling that few really comprehend the massive challenges the troops face
Aren't you the clever one.

agreed. grieving people will always reach out for information / reassure and comfort in times of trouble .....and a website like this is the first place they'll check.

emotional incontinence really grips me ...but I see no difference between an 'internet' book of condolence and the 'real thing'.

God forbid if my son or daughter were killed in a far off land, i'd print off the 'thread' and take allot of comfort knowing that their colleagues had marked their passing

Point 1. Yes, sort of.

Point 2) Do you wear a poppy? You tell me what the differance is. Don't like it, don't read it. :x
