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.

    It was reported as against the rules and I agreed. Just because someone disagrees or finds fault with your posts doesn’t make them weak minded or childish.
    As far as the fascist comments being open to view, we can’t read everything that’s written, so if they’re not reported we can miss them, especially if they’re buried in a pile of other rubbish as is often the case.
    If you’re suggesting that the mod team have a tendency to allow fascist comments but not leftist or republican comments, I would find that quite laughable.

    I am not suggesting that for one minute. I will think what I think and others will draw their own conclusions particularly if they read the totally innocuous post.
    So let’s leave it there shall we.

    Well, that is up to you mate, but I wouldn’t have deleted it if I thought it was innocuous.

    Seamaster,
    would you care to comment further on your quoted statement?
    is this your opinion of the majority of the threads/posts on here or was your reply just badly worded/thought out?
    "especially if they’re buried in a pile of other rubbish as is often the case"

    At no point did I say ‘the majority of posts/threads”.
    If you want an argument I suggest you try somewhere else to peddle your wares. It wasn’t badly worded, it was succinct and to the point.
    Threads that get dragged into thinly veiled political arguments are, invariably, filled with rubbish.
    Neither was it badly thought out, I can assure you that the consensus in the mod cupboard is that many of the threads to which I’ve alluded are as I described.
    Now, because I’ve slashed on your chips with your first complaint, and subsequently answered your childish and deliberately provocative second poke, I suggest you shut up unless you’ve got something useful to say. Is that clear enough?

    I’d say that is very clear.
    Some people can say what they like no matter how inflammatory and others will be unceremoniously slapped down for the slightest thing.

    Show us where people say what they like no matter how inflammatory. Put up or shut up.

    Nobody is forcing you to post in such an unequal forum, you could always vote with your feet or rather your fingers and find another forum where you are allowed to say exactly what you want or start your own and give us all the nod

    Where were we? Oh yeah, Prince Charles. I'm not really a supporter of the Royal Family, but I hope Charles is fine. If he pegs it, then William becomes heir to the throne. He's a bit too 'meh' to be king of England.

    He can say what he likes. You are the mod. Not me.
    Did I imply that he can’t?

    @pbrown I see nothing remotely cryptic about any of my posts.

    I think the slap down of @buffy vampire slayer was totally disproportionate to what he had said but again that is just my opinion which clearly I should be very careful about expressing.
    Anyway. I have no intention of taking any further part in a exchange which, as has been made very clear is only heading in one direction.

    So, not putting up, I assume you’re shutting up.
