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.

  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.

    Saw this doing the rounds on FB, pretty much spot on in my opinion, that said there will be those that will try and twist things as it doesn't fit their agenda.

    Money certainly plays a massive role in all of this. I'm sure that there are genuine parties that care honestly for the environment but there are many more s**t bags that are making millions if not billions from the climate change circus.

    Love the Aussie guy. I especially like the 'turds' reference. More than a grain of common sense in that piece.

    If there was no money in climate change, then there would be no climate change. ;)

    This type of thread seems to recur with amazing reliability.
    The one thing which is consistent is the point of view of those who start them.
    I guess it is a forum composed largely of middle aged or old white men (of which I am one) so maybe we should not be too surprised.
    It would be interesting to see how long they can keep a thread reaffirming their deeply entrenched beliefs going if no one disagrees with them.
    Let’s see and then maybe we can be spared any further re-enactments.

    Fanatics always come down to the same things - thinking that they have a right to push other people around (they always believe themselves to be superior), and getting their hand in other peoples pockets (ostensibly for the common good, but it always seems to stick to their fingers).

    Sometimes when I see what is going on in the world I think going extinct might be a good thing, then I think of how smug those waste of space lot would feel and hope they all live long enough to realise just how much of their life was wasted.

    Well lets see, you could also apply your wide sweaping statements to the protestors (or c#nts as they are commonly known as, by us middle aged or old white men). lets have a quick go...

    With amazing reliabilty these people make trouble and protest - even when they know s#d all and are obviously being manipulated but others (middle aged or old white men).

    It will be interesting to see how long they can keep up protesting and affirming their deeply entrenched beliefs going on if no one FUNDED them. (as they are mostly nieve middle class white kids)

    Let’s see and then maybe we can be spared any further re-enactments.

    A mate who is studying in London went down to Trafalgar Square during the protests to see what all the fuss was about ... rubbish everywhere including McDonalds and other fast food outlets and then on the way back to Kings College saw a pair of 'weekend warriors' chucking the tent they'd been using into the Thames off Hungerford Bridge :mad:
