Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

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

  1. Can someone clarify the law on this?

    Changes to getreading comments policy - News - getreading - Reading Post

    There's a big change happening to the getreading comments section from today due to a ruling from the Information Commissioner.

    From noon the usernames of people leaving comments on this site will be replaced by their real names.

    The change is due to a Freedom of Information request by regular commentor rogerPC Bushescents who felt it was unfair that he/she (we’ll find out RogerPC Bushescents’ true identity at noon) did not know the true identity of the people calling him a fool.

    The Information Commissioner Dame April Graham ruled in his/her favour and has forced getreading to change our comments policy from noon.

    Website editor James Ashford said: "This is not something we wanted but we have to comply with the ruling.

    "Apologies for any embarrassment this may cause."
