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.

    Bunch of bloody nutjobs; how do they think their soya beans grow? In massive monocultures that have stringent pest control measures in place, a huge carbon footprint and ecologically disastrous factory farming practises, that's how.

    Bloody sandal-wearing, middle-class hippy urban do-gooders, the lot of them.

    Ostensibly, the RSPCA do a lot of very good work regarding animal cruelty and welfare and I have personal experience in a case of horse neglect that led to the accused being sent down for 6 months and banned from keeping horses for life. On the other hand, they have become a little too 'political' of late, prosecuting the Heythrop for hunting with dogs and racking up court costs of something like £350,000 in the process ... a huge amount of publicly raised funds that the even the District Judge in the case said was a staggering amount that could have been better spent by the charity in other areas.

    'Ostensibly' ... agreed, a lot of bad decisions are made by them, but there would be a lot more animal suffering without them and repeat offending by the habitual animal abusers. What is needed is a complete and unbiased review of the Society's policies and actions by a publicly appointed body

    Well I'm sure there are enough level headed people amongst the Society's members to make sure these people with their extreme views don't get elected,hopefully,time will tell.

    Gave up supporting these so-called "protection" charities a few years back - variety of reasons. Just another reason to support my decision!

    On twitter this week a famous farmer (if you watch the Welsh programme you'll know him) posted a picture of a sheep that had been mauled by a dog. He got somebody ranting at him that all farmers are cruel and that any industry that relies on subsidies should be allowed to fail.

    What this berk didn't realise is that all food, regardless of what packet it ends up in or mixed with, comes from farmers. I suggested he stick to synthetically produced soya.

    The complete nonsense some of these "protection" people spout is as deluded as anything David Icke has said.

    I doubt they prevent as much suffering as they make out. Many neglected animals the RSPCA take in have been abandoned and you can't find who did it. When animals are taken away from people who are abusing them they receive fines and court orders but the people go back and get more animals regardless.

    I have come to the conclusion that the better treatment of animals comes from the better treatment of people. I have yet to see punishing work.

    I don't give to the RSPCA. I would give gladly if they didn't lobby government, kept out of politics and used donations to run direct services for animals in need. I think that is what most people want when they drop a pound in the pot.

    I don't agree with the first piece of your statement James, yes to the second part.

    Some people are just evil on matter how society treats them.

    Punishment in the uk is a joke and some of the fines given are no more than a weeks wages or less. Cut there ****ing hands of to start with. This may bring rapid results.:rolleyes:

    Andrew, to whom do you award the right to remove hands?

    In millions of people's eyes you are a wicked man who is extremely cruel to animals.

    Be careful what you wish for.
