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.

    Good point about health care funding have anyone seen the relative figures form the US and Germany infected figures are high but death rate is comparatively low by comparison the other country's.

    I've got a good idea!
    All those that think covid 19 is just a mild flu like illness and nothing to worry about, why don't you volunteer to work with CV 19 victims in hospital in their last days, because it's not serious you won't need protective clothing because you're fit and healthy.
    Of course you won't catch it but if you do it will just be a few days of sniffles and feeling a bit low so you won't need treatment, that's just as well because there probably won't be any treatment left for you.

    I'm one of those key workers and am only speaking for myself, I don't really need an Incentive only that I (as well as many others) will try to keep the country ticking over regardless of praise/payment, I do know where your coming from though but I personally don't think that way.:thumb:

    It's far too early to look for answers with far too many variables, the U.S. is the size of Europe, they could be weeks of difference between infection rates from state to state, some states have a huge area with tiny population, it's like comparing London with the Arctic region of Scandinavia. People should be trying to avoid getting the virus, and wait for the answers in due course.

    like I say though until you really start thinking, The wife and I went to the caravan on Monday and woke up Tues to news we had to go home from holiday and we were upset but when we were home and thought about it there are a lot of peeps worse off.

    They said yesterday that 2/3rds of the victims would have died anyway this year or next. Normal UK death rate is 550 000

    Just received this, which doesn't automatically mean that i buy into it, but it makes interesting reading no matter what you might believe:-

    "Now thats intriguing -
    Looks So Logical....After all Chinese Stock Market didn't crash....American and European Markets did....

    Destroy other markets and be ready to capture them in every way


    How to dominate the world quickly?

    THE GREAT CHINESE STAGE

    1. Create a virus and the antidote.

    2. Spread the virus.

    3. A demonstration of efficiency, building hospitals in a few days. After all, you were already prepared, with the projects, ordering the equipment, hiring the labor, the water and sewage network, the prefabricated building materials and stocked in an impressive volume.

    4. Cause chaos in the world, starting with Europe.

    5. Quickly plaster the economy of dozens of countries.

    6. Stop production lines in factories in other countries.

    7. Cause stock markets to fall and buy companies at a bargain price.

    8. Quickly control the epidemic in your country. After all, you were already prepared.

    9. Lower the price of commodities, including the price of oil you buy on a large scale.

    10. Get back to producing quickly while the world is at a standstill. Buy what you negotiated cheaply in the crisis and sell more expensive what is lacking in countries that have paralyzed their industries.

    After all, you read more Confucius than Karl Marx.

    PS: Before laughing, read the book by Chinese colonels Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui, from 1999, “Unrestricted Warfare: China’s master plan to destroy America”, on Amazon, then we talk. It's all there.


    Worth pondering..
    Just Think about this...

    How come Russia & North Korea are totally free of Covid- 19? Because they are staunch ally of China. Not a single case reported from this 2 countries. On the other hand South Korea / United Kingdom / Italy / Spain and Asia are severely hit. How come Wuhan is suddenly free from the deadly virus?

    China will say that their drastic initial measures they took was very stern and Wuhan was locked down to contain the spread to other areas. I am sure they are using the Anti dode of the virus.

    Why Beijing was not hit? Why only Wuhan? Kind of interesting to ponder upon.. right? Well ..Wuhan is open for business now. America and all the above mentioned countries are devastated financially. Soon American economy will collapse as planned by China. China knows it CANNOT defeat America militarily as USA is at present

    THE MOST POWERFUL country in the world. So use the virus...to cripple the economy and paralyse the nation and its Defense capabilities. I'm sure Nancy Pelosi got a part in this. . to topple [Politics are banned - read the Forum Rules]. Lately President [Politics are banned - read the Forum Rules] was always telling of how GREAT American economy was improving in all fronts. The only way to destroy his vision of making AMERICA GREAT AGAIN is to create an economic havoc. Nancy Pelosi was unable to bring down [Politics are banned - read the Forum Rules] thru impeachment. ....so work along with China to destroy [Politics are banned - read the Forum Rules] by releasing a virus. Wuhan,s epidemic was a showcase. At the peak of the virus epidemic. ..

    China's President Xi Jinping...just wore a simple RM1 facemask to visit those effected areas. As President he should be covered from head to toe.....but it was not the case. He was already injected to resist any harm from the virus....that means a cure was already in place before the virus was released.

    Some may ask....Bill Gates already predicted the outbreak in 2015...so the chinese agenda cannot be true. The answer is. ..YES...Bill Gates did predict. .but that prediction is based on a genuine virus outbreak. Now China is also telling that the virus was predicted well in advance. ....so that its agenda would play along well to match that prediction. China,s vision is to control the World economy by buying up stocks now from countries facing the brink of severe ECONOMIC COLLAPSE. Later China will announce that their Medical Researchers have found a cure to destroy the virus. Now China have other countries stocks in their arsenal and these countries will soon be slave to their master...CHINA.

    Just Think about it ...

    The Doctor Who declared this virus was also Silenced by the Chinese Authorities"

    No need to split hairs :D

    It might have been doing the rounds for a while - (the conspiracy theorists are out there) but there does seem to be an awful lot of unanswered questions and strange shenanigans during this life changing pandemic :) :thumb:

    There’s always a conspiracy theory whenever a new disease hits, but the idea that’s it’s just a naturally occurring virus makes far more sense to me.

    If I were to suggest that two Russian agents, would attempt to assassinate a double agent, by spraying his front door, with a perfume bottle. Then simply discard the perfume bottle, before heading home.
    Would you believe me?
    I am no longer willing to disbelieve any theories or rumours.

    I would believe the story about Russian agents, but I remember back in 1978 when they killed somebody with a ricin pellet fired from an umbrella. That was a real thing.

    All these conspiracy theories about Coronavirus, are exactly that, theories. They’re just interesting stories that make sense for some people.

    It’s not 100% confirmed as true until there’s a YouTube video on it though...

    Thanks - someone at least understands my gripe. :up:


    But I don't see that at all, the HUGE percentage of people dying are with pre-existing conditions and/or are old. A huge thing is made of one healthy person dying from CV, but how many healthy people die from the Flu?

    Today in the papers the story is that the death rate has halved, with them asking if the that the quarantining has worked??? Worked in 24 hours??? More sensationalist BS.
