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.

  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.

    I asked a pretty, young, homeless woman if I could take her home and she said yes with a big smile.


    The look on her face soon changed when I walked off with her cardboard box.

    I don't understand when healthy looking young people live their homeless life when they can just work hard to achieve something more sensitive neither bit of change for alcohol and drugs

    Well, you can look healthy on the outside and be in a real mess on the inside. A large percentage of homeless people have severe mental health problems; the two go hand in hand, really. Not everyone who sleeps rough is junkie.

    I use to give to them selling big issue years ago, when the ones selling them were youngsters, I don't now for my reasons, which I wont put down due to I might offend, or I'm being politically correct.

    I tried to give a homeless man a sandwich a while back & he refused it saying he only accepted/wanted cash. Ive not gave any of them anything since, shame really as i'm sure many would of been more than happy for a sarnie to eat.

    I was walking to the rail station in Norwich a week or so before Christmas with plenty of cheer inside me :)D) so was feeling particularly generous towards my fellow man. Homeless fella asked me reasonably politely if I had any change ... decided I'd help so started walking past him to a cashpoint nearby when he starts effing and blinding at me and what an ignorant f**ker I was.

    The look on his face was priceless when I stopped his ranting to say that I was going to get him some cash, but because he had been so abusive, he could foxtrot right oscar and go play with the 21.30 to Liverpool St about to leave platform 3. Miserable **** :mad:

    i have seen 2 sides to homeless people i have met once i was asked for a cigarette and when i handed it over he said it wasnt his brand..i took it back, crumbled it up at his feet and walked off...... the other is a guy john, who i have actually spoken to a few times at the supermarket, and used to give him food for his dog...until it was run over in the carpark..when we see him now we will buy him a coffee and a sandwich and my 2 year old hands him a small bag of sweets :) he gave us a christmas card this year, which brought a tear to the eye.

    A local radio station to me has Frank Skinner do a Saturday morning show.
    Over Christmas I was in the car listening to his show, & he was talking about he was once walking through Birmingham when a homeless man asked if he could buy a cigarette from him. Frank said yes of course you can, the homeless man emptied his pockets & had 8 pence all in copper & all covered in bits of tobacco. Frank handed the man a cigarette & actually took his money from him!

    He said, it wasnt until later in the day that he thought about what he had done & how bad he felt actually making the homeless man pay him.

    Here's a shocker told to me last night..


    **Please don't read on if you're of a sensitive nature it's not that pleasant and upsetting...**






    .. My freind was in Exeter's shopping area the other day. He's quite observant...he spotted an 8 inch pinky reddish blob in alley near wher folks walk past. He and his freind investigated.. He looked around it ..he spotted little ears, arms legs and formed hands in human form.

    Now your thinking what he did.. A human foetus. .. They reported it to a nearby shop and they kindly took charge of the situation.

    Imagine a girl possibly on drugs or drink or malnourished miscarrying in the street.. Kinda brings it home. I just hope she goes for help and medical attention...

    That poor man had one ounce of pride left and felt he had to pay?

    I thought Skinner was a Socialist!!!

    One of his one-liners is "there are the haves, and then there are the have yachts.

    I agree, but fancy taking his last 8 pence. I would of tried to have found a way of politely telling him to keep his money, while trying to offend his pride.
