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.

    Did anyone watch the programme " marine A , murderer or casualty of war " the other night ? I watched it and usually I can make my mind up on most subjects but this was a very grey area and left me feeling a bit weird ? Just wondering what others made of it . Also can we please keep this conversation civil with no racial or derogatory comments chaps !

    A tough one. I have never been in this type of situation and at first i thought what's the fuss about as this guy was shooting at them minutes earlier and was probably pretending to be a member of the general public beforehand also and about to die anyway. However, if you compare it to Nazi and Japanese killings of prisoners of war and injured combatants/hospital casualties being murdered during WW2 then i think of those incidents as dispicable.

    I have been on the receiving end of enemy/terrorist fire and if i had caught up with them, i may have been tempted to do the same minutes afterwards in a similar situation. If it was a situation like WW2 ie uniformed soldier against uniformed soldier, then fellow respect would have kicked in and medics called etc.

    well...dont really agree with killing the guy after capturing him, he should have just done it before and i know that if that had been the other way around they would have shopped his head off , but what kind of upsets me is that he got grassed up by his brother in arms with a helmet camera . with friends like that...

    War Is One thing Only those who have fought in them can understand , I dont ever want to know . I dont want to ever have to kill I dont ever want to know how it feels to see a friend die in a moment ! I dont ever want to hate some one iv never met so much i feel the need to kill them and take satisfaction from that Deed . These words are not relay mine . They are from 3 grand fathers . both of mine and my best friends . I Think If I was a Soldier and id seen the deeds of my Enemy That Marine A has seen . eg my friends body parts hung in trees as trophy's by my enemy .I would have switched of . Forget not that Marine A is recruited trained and hardened as an Elite soldier to serve in defending our way of life . Agree or not in Principal . However Killing another human being is probably the most important part of the job . Screwed up world we live in :eek:
