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.

  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.

    Can anyone help. I have had a cold and cough for over 3 weeks now, I can't shift the cough. I have tried about 5 different cough medicines and none of them work, the pharmacist told me not to waste my money. The doctor virtually threw me out the surgery and told me not to waste NHS time and money. I only went because I am asthmatic and it's a chesty cough. At the moment I am taking honey, lemon juice and hot water, but to no avail. Any tips or remedies would be gratefully appreciated, it's driving me mad. Thank you :(:(

    As your quack said - there's a lot of it about. My missus has had it - took over 4 weeks to go. Kept coming and going as sharpshooterpete.

    Could have been worse - much worse - I could have got it too!!


    Cheers

    Am feeling a bit better today. I got some menthol crystals to inhale in water, but can't smell anything. The cough does appear a bit better today, yesterday was grim, today I feel half human :)

    Just to update you all, I am approaching my 5th weekend of coughing and still no sign of it going. I have tried all suggestions made (apart from a1's toads) and still can't shake it off. Doctor politely told me to p*** off, it will go when it is ready. Lets hope it's ready soon :down::(:mad:

    its just that the imune system hasn't identified the 'intruder' yet.

    whatever you have has just evolved to be hard to detect.

    biology lessons getting to me again.

    what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.
    also avoid prosesed animal goods like milk or butter as they add antibiotics to them.

    antibiotics weaken the natural imune system.

    which is why iff im ill i never go to th dock

    the reason everyone gets ill these days is because they rely on medicine.


    remember black death? we would be screwed if that came back as we wont be able to fight back against it were too weak:(

    so, no remedy just sweat it out, if you overheat the body the virus will 'burn up' or in bio terms de-nature;)
