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.

    Can't stand the bloke, so no longer watch the program, the camera crew, that have to follow the idiot, are the ones I admire. I am with you, Ray Mears any day. Atb. Bob. PS. I do admire how he manages to survive his own stupidity, Bear Gryls,:handjob: that is.:rolleyes:

    The thing that Guy Martin, Ray Mears, Lofty Wiseman have in comment is they're all genuine guys. Imho Bear is the Carry-On version of survival. Fair play, he's done some stuff, but ... just-add a camera and hey presto the guy is an instant nob

    Myself I'd like to see our very own 'r10Hunter' have his own TV show! He cracks me up, but knows his stuff and is uber clinical in his methods... The Fox baiting station he made would put P.I.R.A's best bomb maker to task! :cool: TV Scouts take note! :D :eek: :up:

    Judging by the Promo it's going to be Big Brother but on an island. Quite similar to "I'm a Z-lister get me out of here!" also.

    i never said it would be informative,or save your life ...just watchable
    i find what he, does, says,...barfs....etc ,...amusing, ;) if he wants to scoff a rotting carcass, i will laugh when he barfs his arse out of his mouth ...
    i never meant to imply he was a survival guru, i like how ray mears, does actually "craft things" snow shoes n knife hilts n stuff, anyway, im off to bed , be well and t/c all

    wAHHH crap !!!!!!!! i met Bear in a random situation , nice bloke , bit geeky and shy , got that misfit air about him but happy go lucky type , bit embarrassed about the TV thing , But for Grumps , the Lad ( Grumps is old enough and experienced enough to say that ) Has climbed Everest and served with 21st SAS and i probably wouldnt want to be in a punch up against him and he can light a fire with 2 sticks faster than me . So fair play , and he is considerably richer than me for doing what i call Fun :rolleyes: PS not the eating nasty stuff , \grump eats well in the bush

    He was on telly promoting something or other and when asked about his time in the SAS he sheepishly admitted he was only ever in the reserves and not In the real SAS .There is a fine and very smeared line that sits between what we believe is a survival expert and what is in fact a TV presenter. Guy Martin is an engineer by trade and has competed in the TT but also presents tv, Ray mears is a fat bloke who has spoken to some aborigines and presents telly programmes , bear grylls is somebody who was in the reserves once and climbed Everest who also does tv shows(I don't think climbing Everest is that big a deal nowerdays (not that I could do it)) . The only real survival expert mentioned in this thread is Lofty who probably make mincemeat of all three of them and not get out of breath , the tv show will be sensationalised pants as H&S and liability insurance will always make sure they are never in any real danger , as mentioned previously it will be big brother in the jungle .
