Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    I was having a look at the site calendar and clicked on a few different dates and they are full of spam links as you can see from these screen shots.

    There's hundreds of spammers on this site but a lot of them are silent, no posts, such as the ones above. To be honest, it's a right fecking chore banning them if they haven't actually posted, it's a lot easier to wait until one posts then the spam-o-matic feature can be used. Deletes the offending bot and sends the details to Akismet who set up the spam filter for this site.
     
  6. That's the "birthday" of the user isn't it?

    You're not wrong; I didn't know we had​ a calendar.
     
  12. So that's your excuse for forgetting my birthday?
