This is just for disclosure; I have been on ARRSE for 18 Months under my current profile. Had a very busy time so did not use it, basically started a couple of days ago. I have started this thread on the advice of possibly the most senior member of ARRSE although he did not suggest the title/subject. It has become very apparent to me that there is a great deal of 'tough guys' on ARRSE. They like to bully, harass and abuse people that they believe are naive, a Walt or just plain stupid. Well the problem I have with this is that these people are anonymous. It was suggested to me, by my advisor, that ARRSE is not Mumsnet or Facebook and that more moderators and/or administrators would not be welcomed. Well here in lays the problem, people don't want forums over moderated well I say put your name out there. Then self moderation kicks in and the 'tough guys' aren't so tough. I don't have a good enough solution to post here, but I believe something could be done.
