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.

    To be honest I don't understand people who use an ecig where they would not normally smoke!

    watched a guy puffing away in tescos, and somebody on the bus home yesterday!! these are places that smoking is prohibited, apart from that everywhere else, should not be a problem.

    The government don't want you to stop smoking, to much lost tax. Put a tax on ejuice if they have to, then leave us the fek alone.

    Vape on:)

    They reckon that drinking a tin of coke is just as harmful as having a fag, well they don't harp on about Coke that much do they!

    It’s as daft as it going to be:(... I emailed our HR dept in work and was told the Ecigs will be treated the same as cigarettes and because I use one I would have to use it out with the smokers:rolleyes:. Fine no problems there, and then I was told that now the smokers are infringing my human rights smoking near me:confused:.... I'm amazed that my work place wasting resources working this rubbish out:eek:.... Still nearly 4 weeks without a fag:up:

    This type of thing really annoys me. Instead of slagging people off for excesses, they should force manufacturers to make products /food more healthy.

    As for Ecigs, are they harmless or do they give something off that could harm others? I have never got my head around why people deliberately take up smoking.

    Losing too much revenue from falling sales of tobacco, Of course they are going to bastardize the product!

    they want everyone to class it as tobacco so they can charge extra duty on it, or class it as a drug so ya have to get a scrip for it and they can charge you 4 times its actual value...

    simples...

    Funny how everybody seems to have forgotten that nicotine is both highly addictive and extremley toxic( the stuff you are happily inhaling is a main ingredient in many insecticides and will kill most creepy crawlies ) ........just because they have removed the tobacco from the act of smoking doesn't mean that the substitute is safe or healthy guys, I have no idea how much nicotine is absorbed and how much is ending up in the atmosphere for others to inhale when people " vape" but if I walked into a room and started spraying a mild solution of cyanide about people would soon be up in arms about it ( and quite rightly too), I'm not being critical of smokers or Vapers just trying to clarify a few things that people seem to have forgotten or chosen to ignore when swapping one highly addictive and toxic habit for a different one

    unless im mistaken caffeine is not that great for you either ok have a major influx of nicotine and go to the hospital do the same with caffeine and make the same trip to the hospital you can probably say this about most things but the benefit of vaping is you are not getting a lot of Censored in your lungs as well

    At the same time, I don't drive so why should I suck up someone else's exhaust fumes, vaping should band in every public enclosed space, as is smoking.

    I would never dream of sparking up or vaping in public places in close proximity to others. People who vape on buses, shops, pubs just because it's not smoking get on my tits!!!

    The problem again lies with the government, telling us what we can and can't do, they banned smoking but never asked everyone if it was the right thing to do, just like they will try to do with vaping, what happened to freedom of choice in this country, for us smokers and also for non-smokers, we never had any option but to do what they said. Its my body and so why can't i put whatever crap i want into it, when i want.

    You can. It is if course your choice to do whatever you like when you like.

    However some choices we make come with consequences, some of which will cause you to fall foul of the law.

    As yet vaping in public confined spaces is not one such choice so make the most of it while you can.

    Nothing wrong with that at all, but you are forgetting one crucial thing and that is you are making other people inhale it also if they are in the same room.

    This was the point of no one getting the option, pubs should have had the option of being smoking or non-smoking pubs and this way it would be the choice of the individual which they wanted to go in. I would not then be making non-smokers inhale it, they would have the option of not going into the pub if they didn't want to inhale my smoke. If i then wanted to go into a non-smoking pub i could and would not light up as that would be their rule.
