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.

  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.

    If it was my restaurant, I would of kindly asked the patents to deal with their children,

    if they didn't, I would of asked them to leave:)

    I did think if I owned a restaurant with people allowing their children to go mental I would just take the plates off the table (whether they had finished or not), remove the drinks and wait for them to remove themselves.

    If you're knocking the 'naughty step' as behaviour modification, you are soooo wrong, if more parents used this method at the right age we'd be ok.

    I don't think it is ever right to smack or hit a child.

    I can count on one hand the amount of times I smacked my 3 children,

    a raised voice was all that was needed, and if I said we are not going to the beach or wherever,

    I bloody well ment it, you have to follow through with the punishment:)

    Clip round the ear never did me no harm.

    I agree with Alex the countrys gone soft.

    Not just with parenting either, the whole thing you just need to look at the compo society we have now to realise it.

    Anyone see the well off woman in new york who tried to sue her 12 year old nephew for breaking her wrist hugging her!?

    Worlds gone soft in the head.

    So what? You carry on as a parent, absolute, steady and non violent, there is NO other way.

    What message do you give when you lose control and have to assault a child? It's illegal to strike anybody, especially vulnerable people, old, mentally ill, children.

    My boys, one in particular is a handful, when he gets out of hand the best things I can do is to distract him with making him laugh, defuse the situation , 2 minutes time out and off we go, that's got to be better than me slapping the poor lad and screaming at him?

    I win, my son laughs, I laugh, he's not been hurt and I don't feel like a sh*te person for slapping a 4 year old.

    no brainer.

    I would add that a man who declares 'I smacked my child last night' is treated very differently to the man who says 'I smacked my wife last night.'

    It's really the same thing. Anyone who doubts it is invited to smack a policeman and see if they are prosecuted for assaulting a policeman or immune from prosecution as it is just smacking.
