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:

  2. I thought about scambaiting a while back, but then realised that:

    a - I don't have enough free time to be bothered with it

    b - I have a life

    c - I would be confirming my email address to be live, and therefore it would be passed around to other scammers

  3. I've probably got more free time than most (I didn't when I used to work for a living) & it breaks up routine when writing essays. Also the email account I've attached to this account is only used for ARRSE & nothing else - which also suggests this site is regularly trawled by scammers.
  4. How much spare time?! :wink:
