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.

    You don’t reference where your quotes are from I notice. Very poor practice.
    Presumably ‘The Deadshot Book of Medieval Philosophy’.
    And in these more liberal and enlightened times you should realise there is nothing wrong with senility or piracy.
    It is just another way of life that we should be free to live. The prosperity of this country was built on the back of good honest pirates

    Modern day experts, they know feck all about a subject but let you know ALL about it!

    White people with dreadlocks
    People who rush to the front of the plane the second it lands, only to stand in the way for 20 mins whilst taxying.
    Joggers who jog on roads with no pavements
    People who are self righteous because they own a dog or cycle
    This countries over the top gun laws

    People who let their kids run around supermarkets screaming and yelling and think it’s acceptable to subject other people to it.
    Likewise, people who let there effing dogs yap and bark all day with no consideration for other people.
    People who have no consideration for others and are either so selfish they don’t care or are so stupid they are unaware of the affect their antisocial behaviour has on those around them.

    What really gets me about this program is the totally unrealistic budgets they apply to refurb.

    Presenter: So, Andy, we've seen the house needs a full re-wire, new boiler, plastering, carpets throughout, new kitchen, new bathroom, you're going to move the staircase to make the two bedrooms into 3 and then full decoration. Sounds like a challenge! What's the budget for the renovations?

    Contestant: We have set aside £8,000 - £10,000.

    Me: What? Ten grand? Are you having a laugh?

    (Cut to two weeks later)

    Presenter: It looks fantastic, and the estate agents we have got round have predicted a pre tax profit of £100,000 after only 2 weeks.

    Contestant: we are a bit disappointed by the valuations, we think it's worth a bit more.

    Presenter: Did you stick to budget?

    Contestant: Yes, we came in on budget.

    Me: :handjob:

    I reckon they might come in on budget, they always seem to have a brother who's an electrician, and a father law who's a plumber. That always invokes yet more hilarious banter. "Ooh I bet they love you, ha haha"

    With the "Escape to the Chateau", I did read that the budgets aren't realistic. Apparently the French don't bother trying to restore chateaus because they know they are just bottomless money pits.

    But of course this means nothing to Dick Strawbridge. I believe in his next TV show he'll be raising the Titanic.

    :laff: And a sister who is an interior designer.

    Not like the days of Scrapheap challenge when he was more than content with the engine of a Nissan micra powering a hovercraft that isn't really buoyant at all.

    He does have a rather impressive 'tash though.

    Yeah, always using the same boat propshaft and handy supply of scaffolding poles that appeared every single week. Not to mention a moped engine : "Amazingly, it seems to run just fine Robert, aren't we lucky". Err, yeah...

    Yes, there’s a lot of worse tv shows, but things like Love Island are too obvious.

    I chose these particular show, and especially Escape to the Chateau, because they need to be highlighted. They sneak in under the radar, being all nice and innofensive.

    Truth is, they are like soap operas, or cookery programmes. They don’t offer any excitement or real interest, and we get nothing from them.

    They act like broadcast Prozac, numbing people’s minds. They are classed as “factual” programming, which should really be decent documentaries.

    We used to get the likes of Roger Cook (remember him?) doing serious investigative journalism, now we get Dick Strawbridge pruning some trees.

    Even Panorama has turned into easy viewing pap.

    No I don't agree with your point of view on this I think you're being a little harsh I like to watch it as it highlights not just Dicks but also other peoples endeavours to bring back to life restore rebuild and renew old historic buildings that had long been left to rot and decay all but forgotten by the french who won't entertain doing anything with them and I find that a real shame. If I had the money to cover it I'd really like to do something like this myself my wife also thinks the same way it would give you a real sense of accomplishment restoring an old chateau AND give you somewhere extremely nice to live to boot I think you have to be of that mind and find this sort of thing appealing it's obviously just not your cup of tea is all.
