This may be slightly subjective but throughout my many years I do regard my self as bit of a Wah-er as opposed to wah-ee, meaning that I can't recall ever being succesfully wah-ed by a wah-er although I have dished out a whole load of wahs to wah-ees. Here on the pages of ARRSE almost any post that is suspect is met at some point with a single word post of "Wah", or sometimes a more elaborate "surely this is a wah", 9 times out of ten this is not an attempt at a wah, more likely it's just another bone post. Arrsepedia goes some way to explaining it but I feel a couple more examples of "wahs" will possibly help those that haven't quite grasped the concept and purpose. Example 1. The subtle wah Scene. In the crew room full of REME (it is 1000hrs after all), radio on in the background. Random song comes on the radio, let's say "shout" by tears for fears Wah-er (to no-one in particular but loud enough for everyone to hear) - "This is a great track, Depeche Mode were a great band in the eighties" Wah-ee (in a very smug and know it all fashion) - "err, it's not depeche mode it's tears for fears!" Wah-er - Wah!!!! One in the bag. Example 2. The blatantly obvious wah. On Arrse - Someone posts a picture of a Lynx helicopter and genuinely asks what it is. This in itself is not a wah attempt. Wah-er (in this case likely to be TLF or MDN) - will immediately respond with something along the lines of - It's a Hind Mk twelvety with full cloaking device fitted. Wah-ee - No it isn't, it's a Lynx. Wah-er - Probably won't even respond but is happy with the outstanding result and orders a pint. Like I said, it's subjective but I do come from a place where you lived or died by the "Wah" and even then some people just didn't get it, more surprisingly it always seemed to be the same mugs that fell for it Other examples more than welcome and I hope that this has helped somebody somewhere.
