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.

  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.

    There are 2 things that really get up my nose about this and other similar stories and for ease I've pasted the story here.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    The sister of a woman who died in a car crash believes she was killed by yobs shooting at traffic.
    Suzanne Singer, 40, suffered multiple injuries after she lost control of her red Vauxhall Corsa and smashed into a tree. Her sister Caroline Say, 36, said: "The police are treating it as homicide. A man who saw Suzanne said she went under a bridge and, as she came out, she started swerving.
    "It was foggy, dark and icy. It would have only taken a little shock for her to have crashed.
    "Another driver said his window was smashed by an airgun pellet as he went under the bridge.
    "I hope whoever did this is charged with murder. They killed my sister. The postmortem said she hadn't been taken ill.
    "They should search their conscience and go to the police.
    "If their parents have got any kind of heart, they should turn their children in."
    Caroline, of Southend, Essex, added: "I heard the news from my mum. I just screamed and now I can't stop crying.
    "If anyone is thinking of doing this, don't. People can die. It could be your parent, your brother or your sister who is killed."
    Minutes before the crash on Saturday at Dunton, near Basildon, Essex, drivers had reported objects thrown at cars on the same stretch of road.
    Essex Police said: "People say cars were hit with stones, pellets and branches on the A127 between Basildon and the M25.
    "Officers cannot rule out the possibility that her car was struck by an object, so examinations are still being carried out.
    "Patrols along the A127 have been increased."
    Unmarried Suzanne, a secretary of Shoebury, Essex, lived alone.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Firstly there are people out there capable of this sort of thing and these people are branding all gun owners as irresponsible, but the worst part of the article is how it WAS and airgunner that caused her death.
    All the way through the article, some mindless bast@rd with an air rifle shot at her car and caused her to crash....right through until the sentence I've highlighted that is. No one KNOWS whether it was a pellet, a brick, a branch or just coincidence, but 90% of the article states it WAS a pellet.
    Rogue airgun users are one of our worst enemies, the the worst one of all is the press !!!!​

    Yep, no doubt there will be calls to ban airguns as a result of this. Just as there is whenever this kind of thing happens.

    I have had countless arguements with people about airgun incidents, my bottom line is always;

    It is not an airgun that causes this kind of thing, IT IS THE PERSON SQUEEZING THE TRIGGER!!
