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.

    I watch this program, on ITV in the Midlands (Central, about the police on patrol, after car thieves, burglars, and general toe-rags) most of the time it's filmed, in Yorkshire and the surrounding areas, and viewed by us down here ...I was wondering if when shown in your area, the filming is else-where like the midlands, if you get my drift ...like we view your area, you view ours :confused:

    You're right Hughie,sometimes ignorance is bliss:eek:.
    Wouldn't want to be 18 and "clubbing" it these days,even with CCTV.Thats why Im gonna have my wee girls trained as "terminators"!
    Mind you,think Ruth is half way there already and thats without any training!:eek:.
    There was an episode with the cops in Aberdeen I remember last year,quite funny cos I know the cops that were involved but I dont remember them being so forgiving in real life,without the cameras!:eek:;).

    I think we all moan about the old bill from time to time but in all fairness, I think with the way they are equipped to deal with things I think they do pretty well!
    I know everyone wants response when it comes to firearms incidents and all that, but the truth is what's the chance of armed response being on the doorstep of the call when it comes in? Not very much of a chance at all?
    A lot of people compare our bobbies to the American old bill and how the Yanks don't put up with that!, but our bobbies don't all pack 12g Spas and Mossberg pump actions so when they get a call for firearms you can understand why our bobbies don't want to run into a situation wielding just a stick and a can of gas,waiting at an rv point for the big boys in the black to turn up seems like the sensible thing to do to me!
    For what you see on these programs whether it be up north or down south is only a plop in the ocean for what our police force across the country deal with on a daily basis.
    I for one don't look at the north and think ". I don't want to go there!"
    I have been up north loads and loved it and met some great people the reality is we all have our bad areas and that's not down to the Police it's down to the way the Government allow the policing of it!
    I have had first hand experience of this and seen our bobbies pulling their hair out because of red tape preventing them from doing their job but I would rather live here and be free than live in some parts of America where round every corner there's someone willing to put a cap in your ass!
    Chris.
