  • So, is this nice, soft, easy target fair game, or what? Or is it a bit out-of-order? Buck Felize 18:55, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Looks like a seated avian from the Anatidae family to me! --Rabid Hams 15:50, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
  • I think the issue with this page is that the Russian Summer Ball is a genuine charidee event which is meant to be a bit of fun. Nobody other than a few saddoes are claiming that it endows its participants with any great social cachet or status. In consequence, and in a spirit of fairness which is not normally evident on Arrse, we probably ought to try to strike a balance between slagging off the ball itself, and going for the jugular of Jumpin' Jimbo Shortt. Any thoughts? --Chickenpun 17:10, 17 Nov 2008
  • We are the ARRSE wiki, we pretty much mock everything... frequently inappropriately. No one comes to our wiki looking for facts, they come for the bitter cynicism/biting satire/open mocking. I honestly think the page is very funny. If we took it out we'd end up having to gut the wiki for every inappropriate piece of humour and that's most of the wiki. No one going to the event is going to give a rockape's cocktail sausage about our opinion. We are mocking caricatures which no one will admit to being. However I have to admit I frequently have issues with inappropriate humour and have been bollocked many times so I might REALLY be the worst person to ask! --Rabid Hams 17:28, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
  • I've added some clarity and fairness... but not much. It is ARRSEpedia after all. Hopefully it'll heal some of the pain we... er... I've inflicted. I do recognise it's a charidee event, so I admit to being a bit naughty. I... just... couldn't... resist... it. AAAGH! Buck Felize 17:50, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
