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.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  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.

    I went to the small claims court and finally issued a claim for the money someone has owed me for the past 5 and a half years. I am little angry as it cost me £120 to issue this claim. Life is very difficult but I know there are others worse off than me. It does not stop you feeling used and hope I never get used again. I cannot wait for the meet even if its just to get away.

    Around 5 years ago I bailed out one of my mates by lending him £450 to pay his mortgage that month... Never saw a penny back and I don't speak to him any more Cut him right out of my life. Shame as I've known him for over 30 years and was a good mate once.

    The only problem is just because you have issued a claim in the small claims court does not mean you will get your money. Sure they will get a CCJ but in my experiance that's where is stops unless you want to employ baliffs and even then there powers are limited!

    Can you not claim the £120 back with the money owed? If they get a CCJ what does that do and how does it force them to pay you back?

    If its one thing I have learnt and that is NEVER borrow or lend money to a friend, it doesn't matter how close you are and how long you have known each other, when you cross that line of lending money, everything changes. It doesn't matter how little it is or how much they guarantee you will get it back, money is the root of all evil and it turns people.

    Its sad altrhough I do agree, but if any one lent me money or even a cup of sugar I will ALWAYS give it back. I hate seeing someone in need even though scrumps and I are struggerling. I get so angry when you hear of elderly people dying because they have no money or support.
    WHAT HAS THIS COUNTRY COME TO ?
