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:

    Can we possiby put a sticky up in the relevent boards with something along the lines of;

    "Journo's-PLEASE READ!
    Would all journo's please contact board Mods/CO's before posting questions due to DIN 2007DIN03.......ect ect ect"
    That way the forums can be kept free of the same journo questions,or even start a forum for journo's...
    Just a thought.

    Spike, agree with the sentiment but as the COs can't alter the fact that serving members aren't allowed to talk, I don't see much point. I doubt if the COs really want to be continually bothered by muppet questions/requests either. As to non serving members, smudge's post says it all.

    The journo forum might be interesting, if for no other reason it might be a good way of concentrating the naturally occurring vitriol whenever a journo does appear :D
     
  4. Part of it would be solved if journalists were open and honest in the extent of the questions they pose. Ex or just left members may then be able to give a considered answer. But vague or misleading questions that are patently on a fishing expedition just make people very wary, and get a work ticket for the outrage bus signed.

    So come on journalist/authors etc, be honest and see what happens.
