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.

    I agree with you James. A couple of years ago our next door neighbour was a young woman with a baby girl. One Sunday morning we were woken up at about 6 o'clock by her screaming because her new boy friend was beating her up. I jumped out of bed got dressed and put my steel toe cap work shoes on. Went round and kicked the front door in and showed him what a good beating was all about. Jenny phoned the Police and by the time they arrived he was "restrained" and waiting to be taken away. The officer agreed that it was reasonable force LOL....especially as I was woken up at 6 on a Sunday !!

    Cog...very wise to delete that one. If you are ever blessed with a daughter and she is ever in the same position as our next door neighbour (for what ever reason) you sincerely hope she meets someone like me, not you.
    Remember this very well...there is NEVER a good enough reason for a man to beat on a woman, there is NEVER a good enough reason for child abuse and there is NEVER a good enough reason for anybody to harm an elderly or infirm person. Any man prepared to call himself a man could not possibly stand by knowing any of the above were taking place.

    BTW....the boy friend was a university graduate that just thought he had the right to ignore her when she said NO !!! He was 25 years old and twice her size. She was taken to hospital with a broken jaw and broken arm. On the plus side, I doubt whether he'll ever father children, so at least he's out of the gene pool.

    well said that man buzz ,there is never a good enough reason to do this to a woman,no matter what she has done i applaude you buzz as a moderator for speaking sense,no one deserves a beating like that for what ever reason.

    Thanks James...I believe what I wrote with a passion...not for Brownie points, just because it's how I was brought up.

    Deleted it but I think you mis-understood me, I don't think it's right to hit a woman under any circumstances and I certainly wasn't condoning it. Don't assume and don't jump to conclusions.

    I think you have to define "gang". My reaction would be to wade in a "push" rather than hit, but it has to come down to what's reasonable force in the circumstances. My initial statements cover one on one situations, gang warfare is another matter....what ever the sex.

    l didn't use violence against the person, that bit and kicked that woman, at the end of the street, but l did not judge her, or him...l phoned the police........(in a different time)l was very badly injured myself, but l only used reasonable force to get away from a person that tried to kill me, with a 12" kitchen knife

    Cog...under normal circumstances I wouldn't do this, but the above quote is your deleted post. How the hell could I have misunderstood the red and highlighted sections...where have I made any assumptions and what conclusion did I jump to. If anyone has made any assumptions it's you in the highlighted sentence.

    Thanks guys well my mate stepped in to try and calm down the situation and one of the girls started hammering away at him so he pushed her away it was in self defence i was a witness but i was just out of hospital and in a wheelchair unable to help but anyway he pushed her away and she fell to the ground so another bloke comes running over and gives my mate a kicking why because he was trying to do the same thing we all would he saw a woman being attacked by a man or at least thats what he thought he saw what actually hapeened was he missed the part where the girl was beating heavily on my mate.
    Now i haven't posted this to make anyone look bad or to be argumentative i agree with you and would probably react the same if i was able to i have posted this as a warning both from my mates perspective be carefull what you get involved in and from the other guys perspective make sure you know the whole story before you go and beat up an innocent man because your all great guys on here and i would hate to see any of you end up getting hurt or hurting someone innocent
