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.

    I hate Magpie's. They are along with Jay's, the hooligans of the bird kingdom. I take every chance available to remove these birds. KB1

    A few years back the magpie population around where I live took a sharp increase in numbers. I think I'm right in assuming that magpies are territorial, so I can only think that the original residents had a partitularly good breeding season and a lot of the chicks survived and didn't move on (somebody with more magpie knowledge may be able to enlighten me :D).
    Anyways, I persuaded the wife that another PCP was needed to remedy the situation, after explaining to her the damage they cause to the songbird population. We had noticed the lack of Bluetits, Robins etc compared to previous years. The aa S410 was purchased and I've been systematically culling the black and white b*****s for two years. The numbers of song birds has increased very noticably. In a way I should thank them for my (at the time) new toy :up:.
    Still hate them with a vengence though. Had two last week in the garden. RIP lol

    It's collared doves we're plagued by this summer. Dozens of the noisy beggars and they've got the cheek to invade my chicken shed and scoff all their food.

    Nice one mate. Magpies are definitely the worst bullies. Good to have one less of them. Atb
