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.

    '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.'

  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.

    To those who doubt doing business at long range, here is a tale that hopefully will give you a bit more faith in human nature.
    Maxtich was selling an old Mk1 Rapid in .22.......I bought it, paid for it by bnak transfer. The problem being he is in London somewhere in the big smoke. I am on the edge of the Peak District. The good chap kept the rifle for me in his cabinet until I could get down to collect it yesterday evening - about 6 weeks after I bought it.:eek:

    Anyway, he took pity on me and fed and watered my tired old horse. Caffeine and Rich Tea are just what the doctor ordered! Rather than just say, "here you are", he asked me to look it over properly before committing. It was every bit as good as he said it was in his ad.

    What a gent. Thanks very much - and it just goes to show that the long standing members of this forum are a great bunch....I expect the majority of newcomers are too. If you are a newcomer reading this, hopefully it will give you some idea of the standards you are expected to live up to! :D

    nice story , and just goes to show that there's still some good in this mad world. Not enough recognition for the good deeds, as they seem to be overshadowed by the bad.

    I don't know - we started talking corvid shooting. Something he is a bit of an authority on...he has it absolutely taped with big scores to prove it. I learned a lot from talking to him. His flocked decoys are superb, I am going to get some!
