Strange ARRSE moderation...

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 have twice posted the word elite (E L I T E) on the board and on both occasions it has been automatically converted into E+Lite and made into a link to another site.

    http://www.arrse.co.uk/current-affairs-news-analysis/149517-why-we-need-navy-4.html#post3432054

    Why is this and can we expect it to happen with other words too?

  2. See...

    It's done it again....
     
  3. Elite - wonder if it works for me too?


    Nope - just you bugger knuckles! :)

    Yup, guilty your honour but should be now fixed! All part of our grand scheme to try and keep the wolves from the door.
     
  5. Let's see then: elite
     
  6. Fixed.

    Do we start an Easter egg like hunt for other words that cause the same outcome?

  8. Echelon....that usually starts alarm bells ringing
     
  9. Mutiny


    Not that its a sinking ship Bad CO....just checking words out...no move along to the end of that plank like a good chap.
     
  10. On another thread, the word polar was linked to the Amazon page advertizing watches of that name. Automatic, or did that poster work for the watch company? Let's see if it happens here ...

    [Edit] Yes it does. So that's another word to zap.
     
  11. I noticed this word linked elsewhere on a post of mine:

    Goretex
