1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    I had the same argument thrust at me in a French campsite several years ago. Never been back and never will. It's a petty jobsworth rule under the pretence of hygiene.

    A chap and his kid are barred from using the pool on holiday over a jobsworth rule and you think it's funny. Says more about you than him.

    Of course it's funny. It's almost Monty Python funny. Stop being a snowflake.:laff:
    Go and find someone else to argue with. (Adult section maybe?, although you must find it hard to find anyone in there to argue with these days).:rolleyes:

    I’ve got to admit I was p*$$ing myself at your first rant ha ha!
    I just had a vision of a massive angry Viking stood there in a huge pair of Bermuda shorts :laff::laff::laff:

    It's only funny if you take delight in other peoples misfortune. Would you laugh to the OPs face or to his kid? I doubt it and therein lies your measure.

    Of course it’s a bummer and cost Viking 30 euro.

    Silly law indeed.

    But we are only having a gentle laugh with Viking not at him, part of lightening the mood.

    The sort of things mates do to each other.

    Really can’t understand why you’re so off the mark with this.

    Coz he's one of the grumpy adult section members. He needs to have a moan at someone. I don't mind if it's me. :thumb::)

    Told the wife about this thread today, she is a swimming teacher.
    Her immediate response was it is done for safety. Her explanation - Loose shorts can help drag down people that can't swim causing them to panic and make things worse.
    Bit irrelevant if going in a pool that you can stand in though

    I can't get my head around this.
    So, just to clarify, does this ban extend to proper swimming shorts? You know, the type with the little string vest type underpants sewn in? And what's hygiene got to do with it? Speedos ain't gonna save you in an accidental sharting follow through, even at half throttle and no matter how tight they may be.
    Bloody hell, where's Nelson when you need him?

    I prefer Speedo's over baggy shorts. The tighter fit means they don't slip over my eyes when I'm running...

    To me it's a totally daft rule. The greatest threat to hygiene in a French swimming pool must surely be a Frenchman? (Said in an upper-class English accent. A tired old but still slightly amusing joke)

    Pelican de Pelforth, cheap crap beer, less flavour than snail cooking water. 1.96 euro a litre from Carrefour Calais, they are stealing from you at a worse rate than Butlins do over here.

    You ought to try Super Bock or Leffe Biere Rituel....
