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:

  1. Who really cares?
  2. Twitter not a useful tool for grooming then?

  3. Growing trend, net censorship.

    Just remember after the riots CMD's considered response was to threaten to shut down twitter.

    Which was quietly dumped a month or two later. Probably when someone explained it was not possible.

    So we probably shouldn't say too much about the Pakistani reaction.

    Watch the On-Line Safety Bill go through parliament, you'll be able to access less and less without jumping through hoops (no pun intended).

    They can't sort the economy, crime, welfare, Afghanistan-but they can tell you what not to do with your spare time....

  4. When you have a society that will put a teenaged girl to death for being raped, blocking Twitter is pretty small beer by comparison.
  5. Skype ban in Oman, UAE, etc. It's more about the control and monitoring of information. Terribly difficult for a sultan's chaps to earwig on VoIP better to use their unencrypted GSM networks.
  6. Now is blocking twitter really a bad thing?

  11. I disagree. The world could do without the likes of twitter and facebook. There are enough attention seekers around without making more.
  12. Paedophile porn, is that ok? How about planning the next 9/11?

  13. I use skype and other voip programs whenever I am in Dubai (which is in the UAE) with no problems.
