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.

    '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.'

  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.

    Is it so hard to say??

    lots of people come in my shop, I always greet them with a good morning or good afternoon, but most won't even reply, but I don't let them away with it, I will say it again until I get a bloody response!!

    mobile bloody phones, do they have to have be answered just because they ring? One ignorant nob answered his this morning while I was trying to serve him, he then lifted his arm extending his finger prompting me to "hang fire" while he finished his call, so I moved on to the next customer.

    He wasn't best pleased, I said I don't care away and learn some fekin manners. I would never answer my phone or even look at it while in mid conversation with someone.

    Just a total lack of basic manners!

    oh, good morning AGF:)

    A very good morning to you. As my Mum use to say "manors cost nothing but show what kind of a person you are".

    I have to agree with you, it's totally uncalled for, but people are getting more ignorant and then more annoyed when you don't just wait for them like a servant. I work for a bit firm, so when I get this I can only think "what a d1ck", I'm not allowed to say it, but if your reading this and you do this to people - I'm thinking about you!

    It costs nothing to be polite ... It's a shame the country seems to be heading in a poor direction. At least we can still put hope in those that still have some decency .... Oh and good afternoon :)

    Always do so on the post. I think people are just so unused to it that it takes a while to register. I was called on this in Oz by a bus driver. My mind was filled with questions about timetables, destinations, locations etc. that I forgot I was speaking to a human being. All power to him.

    Hi Mr. Stevie, how are you today? :D

    I get it all the time in our shop. Peeves me off no end.

    "Morning", "Morning"... "MORNING"

    "Gies four slice sausage"

    They don't get a thanks or anything if they behave like that, bare minimum of interaction if they don't have the common decency to open a conversation in a polite manner. If they answer a 'phone while I'm serving them, I just disappear through the back and leave them there. It's the epitome of rudeness IMHO. I was served in the supermarket the other day by a girl who spent the entire transaction talking to the cashier behind her. The only thing she said to me was the price of my shopping. The topic of their conversation? How rude it was when someone was talking on their 'phone whilst they were serving 'em! Couldn't believe it... :tsk:

    Evening mate,

    Well just last week in tesco, same thing with the lassie at the checkout!!


    But sadly for her she gave me change of a 20 instead of a 10, the wife said I should of told her of her mistake, if she wasn't gabbing to her mate on the next till, she would of been on the ball, she even through my change down next to my shopping!

    I'm an honest guy, but this Just just proved a point!

    Good evening Steven. One trusts you are well on this fine day?

    I agree: manners maketh the man - or woman - it's not hard work to be polite. Unless you're dog-ignorant which, Alas! many people are.

    I'm good despite the fact that I'm up to my eyeballs in work - both at home and at work itself; however, I shan't burden you with the boring details old chap :D
