I'm inspired by a quote from John Keegans excellent "The Face of Battle" (1976). I'm sure some contributors to ARRSE know the author (I have never had the pleasure, but do enjoy his writing). The paragraph that struck me while beginning a re-reading of it after a few years is early on, (page 23 in the Penguin paperback), where he says My point is, from reading the contributions to ARRSE (which can be deemed to be military society, I think), I would say that a lot of these categories (especially the compulsively argumentative!) would be represented! Does any contributor think this is down to the changes in society since 1976, or the anonymity which is offered by the internet. The flip side is that ARRSE, whilst being an open discussion forum, does have a form of censure that most discussion forums does not apply, i.e.. the "O2 Thief" tag, which whilst being short of total banning and erasure of posts, is an indication to other members that in some way, a member's views may be considered suspect. Do any other members of ARRSE have a view on this?
