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.

I for one hope so but doubt , Grumpy has a funny feeling good old uncle Sam will wriggle out off it even in light off some off the utterly ridiculous extraditions off our own citizens , so whats the general opinion on this one ?

    Yanks are awaiting several US citizens to be returned from Italy under the extradition treaty so they don't want to jeopardise those proceedings. They will pack her off but it could take a few years to go through due process.

    I do not really think the yanks will have any choice but to return her under international law

    I`ve just read a book about a local murder. The perp had committed a murder in Italy too. The author was scathing about the Italian judicial process, alleging corruption, collusion and incompetence. So I`ll reserve judgement about her guilt. I very much doubt the yanks will extradite her, though, although they seem to think the world should extradite to the US whenever they click their fingers. Double standards, oh yes.

    Guilty? Not sure! body language suggests she definitely knows more about it than she's letting on, her 'tells' are quite obvious!

    Unlikely to allow extradition as found guilty then not guilty then guilty again. They have issue over double jeopardy as in can't be tried twice for same offence. And as has already been pointed out they are b*****s for double standards.

    Well she was found guilty first time so if she does not believe in double jeopardy she should not have had the first retrial...

    The retrial was effectively an appeal against the first conviction(ie you got it wrong and your evidence was inconclusive etc) once she was found not guilty then any attempt to try her again for the same offence is double jeopardy. Had the appeal/retrial upheld the original case then in would have been over unless she could keep appealing. Had the case been in the US they would have had to charge her with a different offence or let it it go. It will be interesting to see what the US do as they do not like their citizens being extradited and couldn't really care less what other judicial systems have to say except if it is to their advantage.

    If she is guilty or linked, then all this further turmoil, is justice in its self. That cant be easy sleeping at night, with all that hanging over you- SHAME. KB1

    in a distant galaxy, far far away ....... actually
    the yanks are sometimes exempt from this law ...... when it suits them !
    as for guilt, she may not have murdered the girl herself, but she sure as hell knows who did, or at least knows much more than she's letting on.

    Ignore that one! Phone went funny. I can never see the Americans sending her back but if it was the other way they would be demanding her to return

    When she returned to the house in the morning she took a shower in a blood splattered bathroom before calling the police. When she was first arrested she admitted taking part in the murder. She's been found guilty twice. These three things make me believe she's guilty.
    Let's hope the yanks have some decency and send her back for Meredith's family's sake, who have been very brave over the whole ordeal.

    There was a guy on tv the other day who said the entire debacle was a joke, apparently the blade of the knife they are supposed to have killed with doesn't even match the wounds
