The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Come on - really, what has Arrse ever done for us?

    OK

    It has lets us come together as a group with differing and strong opinions
    It has allowed us to slag the meedja
    It has allowed us to show our appreciatiation of politicians
    It has allowed us to recognise the contribution that RAF Police give to the nation......


    But really - what has ARRSE done for us?

    OK

    It has allowed Flash and MDN a chance to find a personality (but they are still looking)
    It has allowed Knowledgeable and constructive discussion
    It has allowed Corps and units to talk to themselves and sort out a few internal differences
    It has allowed the Septics an input to real army life.

    But really - what has ARRSE done for us?

    OK

    It has allowed the STABs to look as though they are part of the 'real' army
    It has allowed the 'real' army to look down on the stabs

    But really - what has ARRSE done for us?

    OK

    It has allowed occifers (on occasion senior) to look as though they care about their troops by reading the posts here and getting their staffers to post replies
    It has allowed all and sundry to shown their appreciation of the work carried out in Glasgow

    But really - what has ARRSE done for us?

    Over to you :twisted:
     
  2. It has given Auld Yin whole bunch of imaginery friends, who don't run away when he prances about the room wearing his mothers feather boa and badly applied make up, and with his shaven widgey tucked between his legs.. :D

  8. In my book, if any one of those alone happened, it would have been enough for me. Am I easily pleased?
     
  9. ARRSE has made me cry laughing.
    ARRSE has made me seeth with anger.
    ARRSE has made me cringe with disgust.
    ARRSE has made me stare in disbelief.

    It has filled my life with emotion and I've met too many people who didn't do that. And that's sad.

    P-P you could probably add -
    Splatter the screen with coffee after reading an extract from RTFQ
    Be invited to an 'Interview without coffee' after same

    Be addicted to this site

    Celebrate the birth of future ARRSEers (well done Beebs)

    Give a differing point of view (never)

    Show 'respect' to the Really Large Corps

    But really - What has ARRSE done for us?
     
  11. ARRSE has done a lot for me but above all it gives me a good laugh at the end of a hard working day!
     
  12. 'What has ARRSE ever done for us?'

    A question I never thought I'd hear from a dedicated ARRSEr like A-Y, I must say.

    For my part, it keeps me (reasonably) sane, it lets me pretend I have friends, and I like the utter drivel that gets passed off as confirmed fact 90% of the time - really makes my day! :D
     
  13. Well ARRSE "done" me head in a few times with wnakers posting utter bosh on it. Does that count?



    In a, of course, totally unrelated question to my first sentence what prompted you to start this thread A-Y?
     
  14. Arrse forced a re-evaluation and positve action over the important issue of Forces voting. Is that too strong a statement? No, I don't think so.
