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.

    Very understandably...

    Trying to stay positive whilst recognising any limitations you have is important.... It's astounding how much negative feelings can worsen a condition... But I quite understand that you have every reason to be down, I would....

    My uncle recently had a heart attack and I know it's not easy at all to deal with...

    I suppose, take each day at a time would be sensible advice...

    Keep us posted as to your progress... :eek:

    I have an un-diagnosed heart problem, basically I get tired out quite easily (low stamina) and I have pains in and around my chest regularly, sometimes I hardly notice them, other times it's quite bad. I also get stressed quite easily.

    When I was in France last year I had really bad chest pains all week we were on holiday, I would describe them as being like a warm pain radiating around my chest if that makes sense to you Tim. Really bad, I didn't tell anyone as I didn't want to worry them, and I kept thinking it would go away. They were on and off, I was fine, then they'd suddenly come on, and go again, like in waves. Strangely enough these pains stopped as soon as I got back home.

    I haven't had anything that bad since (thank .) and I have had an ECG at the doctors, the results came back as "fine" which is a bit confusing.

    When I was at school and college I was in constant stress, being around so many people, I felt sick with nerves every day often with no good reason.

    Relating to this I also get abnormal heart rhythms quite often, this usually seems to be as I go to sleep. In the past I've had a few scary experiences where my heart seems to "spasm" in my chest, my pulse going at 200bmp+ this only lasts for a few minutes each time, and I haven't had one of those for a while. This first time that happened I honestly thought I was going to die, I was only 10 or 11 at the time.

    Generally I do very little in terms of exercise. I've found that I feel much better when I'm out doing stuff.

    My problem is a mystery to me, being 18 it sometimes scares the Censored out of me. I mentioned I had an ECG, which would indicate that my heart is fine but there are more tests that can be done. I'm in 2 minds as to whether I want to know what's wrong, if indeed anything.

    It comes on when I'm stressed more than any other time, so I just try and stay relaxed.

    This could be unrelated but I also have a reaction to alcohol: drinking even a can of cider sends my pulse crazy, and my heart won't slow down until I'm sober. Scary. This only happens with some drinks, and it's not half as bad as it used to be.

    Well there you have it, make of that what you will ...

    Never had a heart attack, but I had a double pulmonary embolism (blood clots in my lung) 25 years ago. It felt like someone was tightening a giant jubilee clip around my chest, and I couldn't draw breath. The scans showed that one of the clots was only 1cm away from closing off a major artery and killing me. In a funny way, the experience gave me the frame of mind I needed to help Margaret through all of her troubles. Keep your chin up, Tim.:up::up::up:

    My mate Sally is 37, she's had several minor ones and has had 3 operations and various bits burnt out. She's also got a brain disorder and had to have a piece of her skull cut away. The problem she has is the brain drugs affect her heartbeat, she's backwards and forwards to London all the time. They have just told her the new brain drugs are going to make her hair fall out. She takes every day as it comes and is always laughing and happy, she learnt that worrying and getting down makes you feel worse.

    Best advice, go shooting with Steve, that will cheer you up even if you don't shoot anything, his insane childish sense of humour will help ;):D
