Where is he now? Uber Walt and Idi Amin lookalike thread

Much to my regret, I've had to move this thread to the Bat Cave, so 'game over'. I have to say I'm somewhat unimpressed by some of the contributions which were made to it towards the end which were, by any stretch of the imagination, childish and vindictive. Well done to those responsible, you fücked up a thread which was both amusing and an object lesson in integrity.

Guys.... I was reading this one with glee, but only got halfway through before it was pulled.

What is the 'Bat Cave'? (does this mean Deleted?)

If it can be resurrected in a closed form - please lets start a petition, I really want to read the rest.

I actually met Idi at a secret helicopter training base in Shropshire. We thought it mildly amusing when he disappeared for a while to do some porridge in the middle of his pilot's course.

But I had no idea there were so many dits out there.

Please send me more!

The Bat Cave is a part of the forum for moderators where we park threads where there's an issue about content - for example pending editing certain posts or 2nd opinions from the CO's.

I believe that complaints were made regarding the "outing" of the African Dictator Doppleganger and veiled references as to his current employer. We were also a bit concerned about the general direction of the thread which went from being a collection of dits to character assasinations of more than just the subject of the discussion, ergo Cpunk quarantined it.

Yes that is what we want.

LOCK the thread so that nobody can add to it, PRUNE the hatred out, and then let us review some of the finest Walt dits ever spun!

According to a friend of mine he is fairly happy and doing ok, and as yet has shown no sign of wanting to evict any asians or award himself another VC.

The reason the thread got moved was because it was becoming excessively vindictive. The person concerned was clearly and deservedly a legend in his own lunchtime and it was funny and interesting to read about his exploits particularly if, like me, you'd never come across him and didn't know him from Adam. He certainly didn't do the Army any favours, and I doubt that too many officers of Afro-Caribbean extraction will thank him for his efforts, but the fact was that he was eventually found out, imprisoned and finally drop-kicked out of the army. All very interesting stuff of historical interest. What disturbed me, however, was the determination of some contributors to identify his current whereabouts, explicitly or obliquely, against the policy of Arrse and the even more bizarre intention of several Arrsers to denounce this individual to his current employer.

Arrse is meant to be enjoyable for its members and casual readers: I don't think it should be in the business of screwing with the lives of ex-servicemen, whatever they did when they were in the army.
