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.

    Off to the dental dept. at my local hospital today, got to have an apisectomy (that's the one where they cut the gum and bone to do a root filling). Can't say I'm over the moon, but I need to get this done to have the crown restored:):up::)

    Rather you than me mate. I have the odd filling without anethsetic because I think the injection hurts more, but I wouldn't touch root canal with a barge pole. I personally would rather have a tooth removed and replaced with a false one than that :down::(

    Just come back from the appointment, couldn't have the work done today.:(
    When they took an OPG image, it shows a cyst about the size of a 10p coin sitting on the roots of two adjacent teeth, so I've got to have a double apisectomy, and the cyst removed so that the bone can recover.:up: Should take 1 1/2 - 2 hours!:eek:

    No injection? One time when I was having a filling they had to give me 3 or 4 because it wouldn't go numb, and even that hurt!

    I've had root canal, with me they took my filling out and cleaned the roots with these pins, or something like that. I didn't feel it because the nerve was dead ... but all the time I was expecting to feel it :eek: this was all because they didn't put the filling in properly in the first place, so stuff got in under the filling and killed my tooth :down:

    I've found with fillings, if they are not large ones I won't have an injection, the drill sounds a lot worse than it feels and although its not comfortable the drilling part is usually over in a minute or two then you are not numb or feel any pain after. I would have an injection for a big one. My dentis tells me the injections hurt more in the top then in the bottom of your mouth, not sure why :up:

    What they do is to clean the root with a rotary file, the pin they put in is to stabilise the tooth and close off the tunnel they've cut through your tooth. The filling is very rarely as efficient at the root apex as it is at the crown - this is sometimes where the infection sets in, but since mine have lasted 26 years, I'm not complaining too much. :D The mandibular nerve can be difficult to numb, the access points and exact position vary from person to person, and can be difficult to find, it's done largely by 'feel':)

    I think the fillings they make these days are cak. I have some I had done 27 years ago and they are as good as the day they were put in, it's only my recent ones that keep breaking and falling out :down:

    If you're talking about Amalgam (grey) fillings, I agree with you, but I think the white fillings like Occlusin and all it's clones have got better.:)
