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.

    '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.

  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.

    This one bugs me. Just got my renewal quote, for my car insurance, was not happy, got some other quotes, then rang my insurer and told them I was not happy with the renewal quote, they then quoted me the same level of cover, £70 cheaper, why can't they do that in the first place, no matter who the insurer is they always hike the price of their renewal quotes, it does pee me off. rant over. PS. Wonder how many people just pay it. Bob.

    I change mine every year. Don't even bother telling the existing insurer as so far I have found it so much cheaper with an alternative insurer I just change. I just cancel it,

    What does pee me off is when you renew with another insurer at a greatly reduced price and then find the insurance is actually underwritten by the same company....

    Sharks the lot of them.....They are 1 down from Bankers on my list of hated organisations

    That is what I did, and it was the same insurer I received the renewal quote from, so as I said I rang them up, so now have the same cover, even cheaper than the online quote. Atb, Bob.

    The people who don't check or change are the ones who help keep my premiums down so please don't go on about it or I may end up paying more!

    Insurance companies are like bookies, happy to take your money but hate giving anything back and will try to avoid it with small print if they can.
    by the way I used to work in IT for the AA insurance division so have seen it happen on a daily basis.

    They "try it on" because they are a business and the aim is to make money, not to sell a policy with the minimum of profit, its like any other product or service, shop around to find the cheapest.

    I remember a time when insurances used to go down if you'd had a clear year without claims....

    Seems to me they take the money that is meant to cover the payouts, spank it up and pay themselves exuberant salaries and then when the crap hits the whirly thing they simply up everyone's insurances to cover the pay outs which are supposed to be covered by the monies they have already been paid......sound familiar.

    Seems we will all have house insurance hikes to cover the payout for the flood damages even if we are not affected by flood damage ourselves....just wrong....
