Parole Board for Dashing Chap?

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by Excognito, Jan 24, 2012.

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. I don't know what Dashing_Chap did to deserve his Oxygen Thief tag, but from reading his post over the past year or so, I don't think it gives people a genuine impression of the type of comment/argument he provides. think it may be time to reconsider the tag. There are certainly plenty of respondents with, IMO, far greater claim to the tag (do they have better lawyers or the support of Guardian Readers?).

    Could the Moderators please convene a Parole Board and consider removing his OT tag?


    Please understand, this isn't done out of any regard for DC, but merely because he posts frequently on many of the threads that I look at and the visual characteristics of the O2 tag are giving me a headache.
  2. How much did he pay you?

    He was tagged for posting links to gay porn that disabled browser functions.

    I don't fancy your chances of getting this request to fly, to be honest.

    Edit: Plus he's a cock.

  4. One way of putting it!
  5. Then why not ban the twat?
  6. I'd forgotten it was him who did that. It was a real ****'s trick, and it caught me out.

    A few years left to serve methinks with no parole.
  7. Why am I not surprised?

    Well, can you change the OT tag, then?

    :? So why doesn't everybody have an OT Tag?

    Because he didn't do it in a forum I moderate. One of the relevant mods requested a tagging.
  9. Most obliged sir, tho if the O2 tag gives you a headache I daren't consider how people view my sig.

  10. Perhaps, but I've tried to keep it in proportion.

    Try and find one crap post from me in the last 6 months. Quality over quantity and all that.

  12. It's not so bad, check this one:

    29 regular threads, 20 in NAAFI, so I still cover more normal stuff than typing bollocks.

    I'm fairly indifferent to the O2 tag anyway, it could almost be seen as a mark of prominence. I've worn a uniform for a little bit and paid a tenner towards this site so I've just as much right to write bollocks on here as anyone else.

    I suppose on the plus side I'd concede, grudgingly, that you've largely binned the faux 'mater, pater and the polo ponies' balls that was always your trademark annoyance.

    Still a cock though.
