This is a stand-to for an incoming competition, one of our most expensive yet.
Later this week we're going to be offering the opportunity to Win £270 Rab Neutrino Pro military down jacket
Visit the thread at that link above and Watch it to be notified as soon as the competition goes live
We've been round and round the block with this one.
Yesterday and today I've had a gut full and I know a few of the what I deem as 'The quality posters' are also completely cured.
Maybe its time to quit trying, let the dullards take it over, change the name to the JRC and lay on lilt and crisps.
Hats off to CC for getting a grip of it this afternoon and putting an end to the utter guff, p1ss and dribble thats been posted of late.
We have a chatroom, the facility for multiple chatrooms, I simply don't understand the need for one word nob-end chat type bollox
Shame its not a real NAAFI that way we could bully fcuk out of the dullards and pan thier lights in.... or at least gently persuade them not to gob off like a week two recruit when entering hallowed ground.
Alternatively, make invitations to a lilt party in the NAAFI and await the dullards entry, lock the doors, board up the windows torch the place and build a new one
My worst fear is a septic or an Aussie squaddie join the site wanting to see British Army banter and wit at its finest he then gets greeted by the goings on of late.
Where is the popular peoples front?
Hes over there
Immortal, a really well thought out and genius posting.
MDN, you may have 2000+ posts to your name (which is possibly an indication of your lack of social skills), but just because people other than you post in forums doesn't mean you should get arrsey.
It's an open site, new people join, females get witch-hunted for being BB's new alias, and yes crap is written. So What?
So what? If a newbie writes junk - leave it go..... There's no need to bemoan everything which doesn't go your own way every two minutes.
Some of the stuff you write is very funny. Some of it is complete dross akin to the humour of Benard Manning or Bobby Davro. One man's meat is another man's poison as they say. No else gets on their soapboxes and writes MDN is dullard - feck him off to his own broom cupboard.
Tolerance and acceptance are words which maybe lost on you, but you really have got on my tits you whinging little toe-rag. Maybe it's time you put the toys back into your pram, and acted with a bit of decency and maybe just maybe like a grown adult.
I know I will get slated for this post, and to be honest I don't particularly give a monkey's.
If you are that concerned, why don't you organise your own subscription site, where you can dictate to all and sundry what you expect - word for word - in their postings.
I really am disappointed that you have felt the need once again, to resort to a puerile tantrum.
Clearly you and I are used to very very different NAAFI's
The reason I started a poll a few weeks ago was because my inbox was full of PMs from people's whose input I value. Those people being the mainstay of the site and what attracts others to it.
Maybe I am out of order in wanting to keep the dribble out, maybe I shouldn't winge when I see something that was once so good go to the dogs, maybe I should harbour to the likes of yourself and watch it take a downward slope..... If I am in the minority then so bit it, I will toe that line.
As for that post being a tantrum, you should step out of the mess and into reality.
Actually, having read back through the 30 summat pages of I know who you are you psychobitch , a lot of it was actually quite funny., in spite of the fact i was a bit peeved about it being so brutally yanked off topic , as my intention was to keep the pressure on a bit longer.
Anya came back, and seemed to have found a form of tacit acceptance, especially when she stopped using txt speak. Actually,she's probably quite a bright girl, and she's up for the flaming
I did notice MDN's post on Dullards late on , and that quick fractious exchange with Agent Smith , and then the thread got locked , either because CC had been petitioned or just got bored.
RTFQ posts some simply stunning stuff, that doesn't rely on grossing out the reader for it's impact.
Not a criticism, but sometimes you can get a little queasy reading about *******, grollies and the like
Yes there is drivel posted, the one word bollox had me looking on e-bay for a Flammenwerfer.
However, remember the Naafi gives rise to some excellent , non-gross threads "Tiny Squaddie, Bill Oddie, Stumpy" etc.
Crap threads invariably die a quick death anyway , the Golden ones do tend to stay near the top.
There are a lot of members who have been posting hilarity, interesting and informative stuff on the site since the off, and have grown with it, and helped the site a lot by providing same. Don't knock them.
I don't think you can call it a "me and my gang" thing though. If it was, then the six thousand odd members wouldnt be members or use the site so frequently. When I first joined (in a previous incarnation or two) there were 1700 or so members. The posts in the NAAFI were more often than not, sidesplitting. Hence me losing a nork. (and if you believe that........)
MDN your bound to get crap out of all those extra few thousand having joined and posting stuff. I do think, however, that it is, somewhat, a pain in the fekkin arrse to scroll through all the yawn material, (of which I add to when pissed) to get to the good, real belly laugh stuff which makes the ARRSE NAAFI forum a worthwhile read. Suppose if it has to be it has to be... Funnily enough, I did come across a rare post from Aunty Stella recently. Chuckle imminent, I thought. Correct! Come back!!! There are some classic posts and one liners that come though on here, but you do have to read an awful lot of guff at the moment to find them. So be it I guess. Will have to take a longer lunch hour. YES!
Perhaps Bernoulli has some room in his mass grave for a bit more though????
