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.

    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.'

  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.

    So the chancellor is announcing regional pay for public sector workers in his budget, apparrently every public sector worker in Wales is paid 18% too much for the area and will endure a pay freeze until it matches the private sector!
    Same goes for any other area in the UK. Thing is though, can't the private sector pay whatever the hell they like (minimum wages rules apply obviously until the Tories abolish that also). And yet they want to take away the 50p tax rate for the super rich, most of which i imagine reside in London or the South East.

    What's next i wonder, having to allow an English lord to have sex with your wife on your wedding night??
    Where's my long sword and blue face paint. :mad:

    It's the rich what gets the gravy and the Welsh what gets the blame - again.

    Still, at least we managed a Grand Slam today, eh?

    I recon I'm one of the over paid council workers as I get paid a whole 15500 per year for working a 39 hour week ,doing all the jobs no one else wants to do. And I just got a letter from unison telling me there wont be a pay rise this year again this year (is that 3 or 4 years now?) , but they are still fighting our corner etc , I think I should ask for my £7/month back. If it wasn't for being on standby every second week and doing all the overtime allowed I couldn't afford to work for them

    who knows it might get better one day:eek:

    Regional pay will surely keep people in their regions?

    That makes it difficult for people to save up to get out of their area should they want to do so.

    Regional Pay = Daft idea IMHO, but I can see the future, where low employment areas become low pay areas for crappy jobs, then we'll have "fantastic announcements" on the news about some horrible call centre bringing 1000 "jobs" to an area.
