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.

    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.

    Is anyone listening to this programme?

    How profound, on both sides of the argument about euthanasia. I almost posted a while ago about this, as it came up in lectures.

    Myself, as a health professional am 'pro', but some of the arguments are sound for the negative.

    Lets not pretend that 'euthanasia' in this country doesn't exist, but not in the true form, palliative sedation is the uk's stance, but chosen, per prepared euthanasia?

    Whats your thoughts?

    I watched a 40 year old man die over a two year period with Motto Neuron disease, pretty much died from the feet up…. I think we should have a choice in the way we go, especially with a terminal illness…. We would do it to an animal without question. So I'm in favour.

    I am in favour. If someone is suffering and they want it to end, why not allow it? I know there are risks that family after their money could potentially bump people off early saying that it was what they wanted but if it was properly regulated then I am sure it could be made to work. I am not sure I would want to continue living if all it was for was to suffer.

    There would have to be a form of fast track legal process to support the legislation, otherwise the poor sod would probably die before the case was finally reviewed and sanctioned.

    Last November I watched my father dying from pancreatic and lymphatic cancer. The really nasty part was during the last 14 days or so, and he was in agony, and it was only massive doses pain killers in the palliative care unit that kept him comfortable. Comfortable being unconscious!

    Slightly off topic, but the NHS are often slated for failure, but in my experience of my father's final days, the staff at Princess of Wales hospital, Bridgend, showed great compassion and afforded much dignity to my father, as well as delivering excellent care right up to the end.

    Regards

    Richard

    In favour. You have a right to life and a right to die.

    I've seen this debate discussed on a few forums and have never, ever seen anyone say they are anti.

    If a person has had enough of his lot then he should have the right to his or her own destiny, and if it's euthanasia it's their choice and their choice alone. Atb Paul.
