Very likely a crock of sh1te but..

#1
In light of all the kak about offensive material on here,
could we not make it so only known pro-forces members or serving and ex-serving members can see the naafi?

I wouldn't like to be excluded but I'm a civvy tw@t and quite frankly most of the appeal of coming here was it's a way to get away from all the political correctness and it seems that we're losing that.

Yea maybe this site is a tad sick, but its all in good fun, and its a military website ffs, not the tellytubbies rainbow land.

So can't the admins rig something up so not everyone can see the sick stuff?
I know on another website i frequent, prmc.co.uk has it set up so you can only see the Jollies Bar if you are a member..

Apologies if im talking out my arrse, this kinda PC sh1t just p1sses me off.

The point is, my young chum, that this is a free site - as in free speech - you have to make an effort to find the grubby NAAFI pages and it's an individuals choice to come and play in here. I dont see why we should post our opinions in secrecy, like Catholic priests molesting young boys, high court judges fiddling with fish and goats and MP's sniffing amyl nitrate whilst being sucked off by young guardsmen. If people dont like it, they can fu ck off and find a nice website about flowers. Or more likely Japanese girls panties etc.

Someone who bumped their gums just recently about a thread was a serving officer so it wouldn't make much odds if it was military only.

I understand that Arrse does have a few private forums, which allow/invite the more amusing members.

There have been numerous discussions, over the years, about the NAAFI, and my understanding is that it will always remain a public forum (for the majority of us plebs).

Stuff only gets binned and deleted when it is either not at all funny absolutely bone or used by a poster to further some half assed crap personal agenda that they can neither back up with independent verifiable facts when called on it or at least have the spine to stand by what ever drivel they are spouting, within the realms of being responsible if they are found to full of shite by the majority.

Arrse to me a a decent example of free speech, posters are assumed to take responsibility for what they post, but also it not a democracy and if you don't like that then individuals have the freedom of choice to fcuk off and read something else!

Although it might appear a valid argument in view of the recent cowardly, underhanded actions of an attention-seeking fückturd, Futurebootie, the fact is that some twisted turd will always find statements that s/he finds "objectionable", even if nobody else does. We should have learned by now that "free speech" is anything but, given the possibility of the "meeja exposure" offered by being indignant about any and everything.

I well remember case of Glenn Hoddle some years ago. His entirely private musings about whether disabled folks could conceivably be experiencing a sort of karma in life because of negative actions in a previous life got him sacked from his job.

All these hysterical, dribbling-at-the-gob attacks on his integrity, manhood, parentage etc, never actually took into account that there was absolutely no evidence to prove him wrong. They all just wanted to draw attention to themselves. Looka me, sir! Aren't I the intellectual one!

Vetting people to find out their suitability to be allowed in to the NAAFI Bar is not practical.

I suppose there could be a further warning page such as "The following pages contain items which you will defintitely object to. If you think you will feel offended, please fu-ck off and go someplace else".

That should do it.

P.S. What's so special about Jap panties then?

We haven't had a good 'how dare there be hidden/secret forums on a free site that I've donated to once/not at all' ride on the outrage bus in ages.

When I first joined the site the NAAFI bar was the main attraction, and always my first port of call. over the last year or so the bar has been infiltrated by various types of arrseholes.
The first lot do not seem to realise what the NAAFI is all about, they are quick to find offence.

The next lot are those that do not have the necessary linquistic skill or squaddie humour that is required for a great Naafi bar post (see "now thats what i call arrse" for examples) yet they try their best as they feel that to be accepted they must be a NAAFI stalwart. this floods the board with posts only fit for the hole. Making the mods life a nightmare.

Then we have the ones that think the NAAFI is a dumping ground for porn. I don't need arrse for porn. Plenty other sites can provide relief.

All of the above can be a mix of serving, ex-serving and civvies. So vetting it would not improve the situation.

Sadly as bovvy said this situation has forced the true NAAFI greats into hiding. I can only hope one day that the hidden forums will be released, perhaps we can apply for a FOI act or get the telegraph to publish them, But until then I will have to get my entertainment from Stumpy the dog and convoy_cock. REAL Naafi humour.

Ref the bold bit, do you think that some go there to look for offence so that they can make something of it, or are sent there to look for the same

I get the feeling Arrse is caught between a rock and a hard place.

It has to navigate between the current laws against antagonising 'minorities' and is dependent on advertising to continue as a free site. The site owners are probably also performing a (sometimes) delicate balancing act with the MOD.

On the other hand, if the site is rigidly censored or toned down it loses its attraction and people stop logging on.

I come in the NAAFI because it is an inverted world where ordinary values are turned on their head and insanity is the norm. It's vile, it's disgusting, it's an online affront to every civillised value - and it makes me laugh like a drain.....and provides a welcome break from the strictures of real life. If I said half the things in real life that I say in the NAAFI, they'd throw a net over me and put me in a looney bin. If I didn't have the opportunity to say some of those things - the same.

Half the 'charm' of the NAAFI is the way random nutters, misguided fools and fragile naifs wander in and get verbally dissected by its regulars. Its a cruel and a trivial form of entertainment and one that I enjoy. And I make no apology for it. Excluding civvies from the NAAFI would be a mistake even if it were possible.

I don't know what the best solution is to the politically correct, the attention seeking 'offended' and the whores to ambition who are looking for an easy target to attack and get their names in the paper. Perhaps it's better to try and quietly outmaneuvre them behind the scenes or maybe it's better to shout them down.
