Have just tried to reply to certain individuals questioning my democratic credentials. In most of my prolific posts I have raised the issue regarding the loss of freedom of expression and the stifling of legitimate debate in our country. It seems this site is not immune: from Tricam: From: tricam To: Herrenbloke Posted: Fri Jan 20, 2006 1:19 pm Subject: Herrenbloke... Hey, I'm forwarding this PM to the COs, the MODs of the Intelligence_Cell, PTP as current affairs MOD as he's had to deal with this problem a lot and to Herrenbloke as well as I like to be straight with people. I'm a big fan of ARRSE and credits to the COs/mods for running a great site. One of the many reasons I like ARRSE is the diversity of viewpoint in current affairs - from fairly gung-ho right wing chaps such as T6... lefty tree huggers such as Crabtastic... Unionists such as Manchester_Cop / BlotBangRub... The list goes on and on and although I disagree with many of these people I do appreciate getting to hear their views... Herrenbloke posts from a fairly Islamaphobic/racist slant - he probably agrees with much of what the BNP says. Its interesting to see the BNP angle and to occasionally debate issues such as multiculturalism etc. In fact, as a result of these debates and posts by people such as Cpunk if I ever do meet a member of the BNP in real life I'll be well armed to destroy his arguments. However I find his relentless pushing of an agenda annoying. Why? 1) He posts so frequently that I think he dominates the tone of ARRSE and it presents a very negative impression of squaddies for any visitors. 2) I believe many people feel a need to 'take him on' in order to ensure ARRSE presents a more reasonable view to the outside world - but these relentless debates about the same issues are boring. Take for example this thread... As Birdie points out he is responsible for 1/3 of the posts... www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/...rt=60.html He has made a whopping 1100 posts in 3 months!!! Many of these are fairly length posts on current affairs (Biscuits_AB probably posts that often too but his are brief 1-liners). Is there anything that can be done about this? I do like to hear Herrenbloke's view occasionally but is it possible he be instructed to be not quite as prolific with his postings? Cheers, Tricam. From another user Gentlemen, Herrenbloke is clearly on a mission. My guess is that he is a spokesperson for the BNP. It has been 3 months only to the day since he joined the site and in that time has posted an extraordinary number of posts (over 1100) the vast majority of which revolve around hard rightwing ideology. In this thread alone now numbering some 70 posts he accounts for one third, at times running to four consecutive posts. It appears he is intent on swamping this site with his 'warm and well reasoned' debate but it is infact facism. I may not be altogether happy with the way somethings are going in our society but this cr*p is not the answer. Herrenbloke is a dangerous troll and should seen as such. Frow a mod: I'm locking this thread because while you guys are doing a sterling job of showing Herrenbloke for the biggoted tube he is, I think this topic has run it's course. _________________ Int Cell and RLC Forums Moderator Of course the fact that these defenders of democracy are determined to censor free speech and stop debate speaks for itself. Makes you wonder who the true Bigots are on this site does it not. I expect that this thread shall be pulled but thank you all for proving my point!
