  1. Grenade

    When you start a topic, please make the title what the thread is about - not your username. We have edited this one and your other sale on this occasion.
  2. The Salisbury poison gas incident.

    Everything has a spin wherever it comes from. The truth will be somewhere in between the official line and the usual warblings of the internet tinfoil hat aficionados. Whether we get near to it depends on how good our critical thinking is.
  3. Not the best of days

  4. Stephen Hawking - Passed Away

    Very sad indeed.
  5. Indeed, but when he was on here he was a devious, obnoxious pain. Admittedly this comparison is oblique to the rest of the conversation, which is about people exhibiting concerning behaviour, but it was you who suggested that the amount someone posts about their own shooting outings being an indicator of good character, not me, and it was that assertion I was challenging.
  6. The most prolific shooter I know on here (out 3-5 times per week generally) doesn't post about his outings. He offers help and advice where he can, which is fair enough. Conversely, one of the bigger idiots we have had to turf off the forum over the years couldn't seem to touch a rifle or shotgun without posting all about it (before usually insinuating everyone else was a keyboard shooter). He also used to try by various means to get people in trouble behind the scenes, for example making spurious reports about them to organisations they were volunteering for. So, one a non reporter and another a prolific one. I'd say your assumption is ill founded.
  7. It does. As daft as it may sound I'm not going to give away how I do it on the open forum since it is often the difference between some of the real idiots we have encountered being on here or not. Happy to discuss by pm if you want. EDIT to say that no dodgy dealings were involved at any point
  8. I wouldn't agree that most dont reveal information about themselves on forums like this, it's more the case that most don't realise when they are doing it. Also recognising a poster from forum to forum doesn't require them to use the same username.
  9. I know it is, the point I was trying to make is about it becoming a formalised requirement to look at and take a view on. Depending on how active someone is it can actually be very easy to find out who people are purely from what they publish. For example, I know precisely who a good many of our more troublesome historic members are - all done simply by reading what they have written on here and elsewhere carefully and putting it all together.
  10. This is interesting. We already have a number of FEOs who visit the forum but this could be a first step towards formal consideration of social media activity in the grant/refusal/revocation of tickets in Scotland. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-scotland-43291740 There will (or ought to be) a few squeaky bottoms among some of the people who have been on here over the years if this catches on in the rest of the UK. There are a few facebook groups which are like chimpanzees' tea parties also which could bite a few folk. In my view it is a sensible precaution, especially having dealt with a few on here over the years who have clearly been an entire hamper short of a picnic. What do the rest of you think?
  11. Missfires not so common these days

    Pack the squabbling and personal comments in please or the thread gets locked.
  12. are we under attack !!?

    A couple of spammers who got through. They are gone now.
