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.

  4. Hotmail block emails from us entering your inbox. Unless you can setup a safe sender you will not get activation emails from the forum. Please use an alternative provider or complain to Hotmail.
    Hotmail addresses include.

  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.

    It was talked about years ago, that smartphones would be guiding you into shops, and watching your shopping habits, anyone with a tesco card will know this, ask yourself why everyone nowadays wants your email address, they know what you have just bought so they know your interests, etc, and they know what goods they need to target you with.

    Youtube for instance do not make a product, they use other peoples films, etc, to put adverts in, and those adverts will in some way be connected to the type of film you are watching, I normally go onto evilbay without logging in, to browse around, when I do eventually log in, up come the things I have been looking at, emails appear telling me I only have a few minutes left to buy the item, i even get emails from sellers telling me they will give me 15% off, etc, we are fully tracked no matter where we are, and what we are doing.

    I find it amusing on YouTube how they target me with 'Get rich quick' videos. They put them at the beginning of spiritual videos which somehow the algorithm thinks is appropriate when in fact it's the last place they want to put these adverts.

    I get things like this happen a lot. Bloody creepy if you ask me.

    The only way I can explain it is the advertising companies use your phone to listen to you. Sounds crazy but how else could this be happening?

    For instance we were talking about the radio host Steve Wright, never googled him in my life. Wanted to know where he grew up, put the letter S into google, his name comes up as the first suggestion.

    How many things beginning with S could I have been searching for, the sea? Seaguls? Steven Seagal?

    If all these gadgets were spying on us properly then my mate should have had his door kicked in by the anti terror police by now, everytime I visit him I ask his alexa how to build various 'exploding things' and the location of different politicians and their upcoming schedule.

    He's been a bit bored since he lost his job and with his upcoming divorce I thought he might appreciate the attention and see that someone does want him :D

    All texts and emails go through the ECHELON surveillance system which looks for patterns and keywords. Alexa recordings have already featured in several murder trials.

    Actually I did say that kinda tongue in cheek but if you read through this thread it doesn't seem quiet so far fetched do you think.
