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.

    funghi what a waster.

    I love when they refer to picking their benefits up as being paid - makes them sound like they've actually earned it.

    Just felt sorry for them . no way out second third generation , 20 something years ago i got out off a similar town , those opportunities to get out are more or less gone now . Yes you can get out and find a better life , but not if you dont know it even exists , cant get worked up over it right now , just glad i work hard struggle to pay the bills , put a bit aside for field sports and kit , have a sense off satisfaction and self worth spend a lot off my free time under trees , Strikes me benefits are becoming the drug off choice for suppressing the new un educated un washed masses , hey Grumps is staying out here in the sticks , have to work out here Grumpy likes working

    My parents came from that exact area, (Bachuss Road) it was really tough back in the 50's, 60's and 70's and seemingly little has changed!

    Where we live now even though still inner city and official classed as a deprived area is a comparative utopia compared to the hell hole those people are living in. (For one thing we sweep our streets and keep them relatively clean, no excuse to live in your own $hit!)

    I don't think it was an entirely true portrayal of inner city life, although some aspects were on the money, cannabis grow houses are rife... there have been two within 5 doors of my home in the last year, with armed gangs coming with guns to rob the growers and take the product.... it gets a bit hairy, One innocent African family a few doors away took a terrible beating a few months ago after a gang burst into their home believing it was a cannabis house! Trouble is the police always want my CCTV footage as evidence but If I forward it to them it puts my family in jeopardy so I have to make excuses that it wasn't working!

    My neighbours also don't pop in and out of each others houses, most don't speak to each other (or can't due to the language barrier) with many not knowing each others names let alone their financial business.

    Aspects of the programme were very staged.
