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.

    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 know this is a personal and maybe sensitive area.. So I suggest 'Private message' if you don't mind sharing your knowledge.
    ...and if there are any doctors / medical people I'd love to ask a few questions.

    I know... I'm looking for a little more specific info..
    like: Where and how to get them?
    As far as I can see, doctors don't prescribe them, you have to been on a program where you come and take then there each day, and stay for a few hours, I guess so they make sure it's in your system....making it almost impossible to have a day job.

    My late great uncle was on them and drank though the side effects they make you ill like bad hangover ill and if you take them when your drunk they can finish you. Not a lot of doctors are willing to prescribe them as a deterrent cos of the risk.

    Yeah they can work for people who are willing but you can't take them forever. It's the person that needs treating and a pill can't sort that.

    Agree totally... but with the wet season just around the corner...it's just the extra help to get him through..
    Christmas is a hard time...when you've only been on the wagon for a few months.

    I'm sure a doctor might be swayed into prescribing as your friend has had a bit of sobriety. If not he'd have to try to keep focussed and leave if he has the urge.

    He needs to man up. I was a very heavy drinker until I decided it was drinking me rather than me drinking it. Just stopped.

    Tell him stick to bloody tonic water. I stopped drinking alcohol in September over 5 years ago. The so called wet season didn't affect me one jot. Still like brandy butter though. If he wants a beer like beer then Adnams Ghost Ship 0.0 is about the best there is.

    You can get anything if you know where to look, it's often a risk whether the meds are genuine or not (properly formulated), are you familiar with the darkweb?

    Antabuse is only a 'sticking plaster' and is largely out of favour these days. The only way to quit mad drinking is to realise you have a problem and stop because the consequences will be far worse than changing your lifestyle drastically and living a day at a time until you've mastered not drinking.
