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.

    Just got back from a week in Blackpool. It's been a few years since we were there and I was amazed to see that Pontins has gone!!
    Not a trace left. Was open for 40 years apparently and now it is no more. I hear it has been derelict for some time.
    SAD.

    pontins was the old miners holiday camp wasnt it?
    last time i went to blackpool was a few year back for a day trip,couldnt help thinking how much the place had gone down hill,unfortunatly it seems to be the same in most of the old classic british sea side resorts these days,over run with chavs/chavettes and foreigners,real shame to be honest as i have some fond childhood memories from most of them

    I have no idea why anyone would go to Thailand unless they're sex tourists or looking to pick up a wife.

    I wouldn't say that since I have a studied art in university, but I do hate travel. Basically 99% of all the things I feel I need in my life are in this country. I just don't see it's appeal of increasing my carbon footprint, gallivanting off to see what other cultures are like when I could just watch a documentary about it here.

    Don't have to visit another country, just walk out of my front door, English is a second language round my way, I am starting to feel like an ethnic minority.

    i went to the pontins in southport and all i can say is disgusting.....

    southport itself is beautiful and if it wasnt for local attractions we would have went home, but the pontins resort was rotten.

    cant see the chain lasting much longer if it doesnt up its standards
