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.

  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.

    Have to say I've no real sympathy for someone that grew up wanting nothing, was young, beautiful, undoubtedly wealthy with a beautiful family and everything to live for only to throw it all away on drugs...........selfish stupidity.

    Hands up all those who think she deliberately overdosed as she had a death wish? Heroin overdoses are caused by never knowing the purity of what you are taking which is caused by ignorance led propoganda and prohibition, like it or not the fact is had it been legal she would be here today and her children would still have a mum.

    If she'd not taken it at all she'd still be here today, how bloody simple do you need it to be to understand that!

    "Heroin overdoses are caused by never knowing the purity of what you are taking which is caused by ignorance led propoganda and prohibition"......what a load of Bo**ocks!

    That's the thing about junkies, they want simpathy because of their addiction,

    But nobody had a gun to their head the first time they shot up, perfectly aware of the dangers accosoated with drugs

    For some reason, totally inexplicable to me, the fact that she overdosed relegates her to worthless junkie... I don't know how people can be so judgemental - sad and depressing; . forbid they or someone close to them ever take a wrong path in life.

    Wow - alot of ill-informed and assumptive opinions here.
    First things first - status / wealth / background are no guarantee that you will be free of any mental health issues.
    Chemical imbalances in the brain rarely take into account your bank balance or number of appearances on the front cover of Hello magazine.

    Secondly, fame / celebrity - particularly in todays world - add a whole layer or pressures and stresses that we can only try to imagine.

    Sure - she did a stupid thing and her family will have to live with the consequences, but never assume for a second that anyone who takes any drug is doing so just to feel high or have a good time. It's usually a way to gain temporary relief from whatever demons you have.


    Actually thats pretty much spot on. What do you base your assertion that this is 'Bo**ocks' on?

    Point by point then:

    1. Not all junkies have chemical inbalances in the brain - FACT
    2. True but most so called celebs crave and bring this so called fame upon themselves
    3. Are you assuming then "that anyone who takes any drug is NOT doing so just to feel high or have a good time"? You say yourself that "usually a way to gain temporary relief from whatever demons you have"....Well I've known junkies that had no demons they just enjoyed taking drugs, pricks in my view.

    And my Bo**ocks is based on the comment "ignorance led propoganda and prohibition"......prohibition - where is it legal to take heroin in the civilized world then?
