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.

    The life insurance ad on the telly. Legal and General I think. They magnanimously tell us that should you die, your dependants MAY qualify for a cash payout. That's good of them isn't it? :rolleyes:

    I looked recently for another policy that would pay out in the event of my death to ensure my family are catered for, nothing too grand just 100k or so... IF they paid out!

    Who's got £500 a month to spare then?

    Since the interest rates went down there seems to be a rise in scaremongering insurance adverts, it's as if the fat cats money isn't making any money so let's promise the plebs something which we won't return!
    Pensions are the same, I think just for a couple of days everyone should take all their money out of the banking system, obviously leave in what you owe for direct debits etc, but see how these slimey s**ts react when it happens.

    Mikey's got a blunt nose because of it, but what he doesn't know is that his missus has blown all the cash and replaced it with all of his old gentlemen's magazines :eek::D

    The thing is you could pay in for years and when you die if they dont pay out you wont know.
    Good thing about being dead is you personally do not have to pay out anymore.
    Having said that if you leave any money your next to kin will.

    Beagle Street are at it too. They promise to pay out on every VALID claim. You wouldn't expect them to do that now would you? :rolleyes:

    Insurance sales literature is somewhat like the manifestos of political parties... They will tell you what you want to hear but will generally manage to "wheedle out" of delivering when the time comes for them to honour their words and phrases.

    Energy prices are going up for sure. Only last Thursday I had words with the Gas Co. about them wanting to put my monthly direct debit up by over 40% - to cover a price rise of barely a quarter of that. They said its to prevent me ending up in arrears and worrying about it. No prizes for guessing I ain't agreed to their idea. Had the same with the lectrickery co. about a month ago too. I think they try to get a big barrel of cash in their bank around this time every year, to pay divi's to the shareholders!
