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.'

    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.

Doctors are rubbish

    Is it me or are doctors totally rubbish. I have been waiting ages to go into hospital for a very minor op, (in and out in a day). I finally get an appointment through in the post for July 1st. I ring them to get my pre assessment done over the phone and they ask me if I have had steroids in the last 6 months. I say yes the doctor who arranged my hospital appointment for me gave me some last week for my cough.

    Hospital then says appointment cancelled, you can't have a general anesthetic for 6 months if you have had steroids. I have been waiting so long and I can't believe that my doctors are so stupid to give me those knowing I was due to go in.

    So not only have they made me wait 8 weeks before they do anything about my cough they then decide to prescribe something I should'nt have had just before I go into hospital.

    Is it me or are they totally useless and stupid!!!! :mad::mad::mad:

    MOO it's not just you love...they are indeed thick as 2 short planks. The left hand doesn't even know what the left hand's doing. My Mom was diagnosted as being lactose intolerant and the GP even gave her tablets that contained lactose.

    Sorry to hear that Moo, there certainly are a lot of stupid quacks about and certainly they are quacks not doctors. The stress of it all doesn't help your situation either, :confused:
    Keep your chin up :up:

    Speaking as someone who is on long term steroids (though now on a low dose) and,unfortunately,requiring a general anaesthetic every six months as a 'day case', I find it hard to see how steroid medication is a reason for cancelling your appointment.
    There may well be another-it's not common to put someone on steroids just because they have a cough.I can only assume that your breathing was a cause for concern at the time your doctor examined you and the steroids were deemed necessary at that point.
    I hope you recovered OK.By the way,I'm not medically qualified!

    I'm much better now thank you, I had a continual cough for over 8 weeks thats why the doc decided to thrash it with steroids, he thought my chest was inflamed which was why he gave them as an anti-imflamatory or thats what he told me, it has done the trick though
