Nigel, you really are making a meal of this.
it is quite simple... I have only correct you on your assertion that the
PAS had created a Metal Detecting Game for children (a half truth) with
the express intent of creating detectorists (a wild assumption) which is
somehow going to bring about the final Armageddon of man ... (well maybe)
Your site does much to highlight heritage issues as you see them, some good,
some maverick, some wildly inaccurate.. but hey.... that's life... that's
what I do to... sometimes I am right, sometimes I am wrong, sometimes I
just am plain daft. but I do try to at least wave the sword of righteous
anger in the right direction.
I take it most people think the PAS does as good a job as it can - it could
do better, but then again, it could be worse, it has some good initiatives,
and perhaps also has a long way to go...(such as including the information
that OurPastHistory has - though that would be duplication and along with
BAJR, the spirit of cooperation does mean not having to rewrite the
information time and again...) but I find them positive, articulate,
helpful and best of all... willing to accept constructive critique if
presented in a way that can be discussed, rather than the withering attacks
that seem to assail them about peddalling detectorist dogma to small
children through the medium of a .subliminal message laden game....
sorry Britarch, but I would rather talk about sensible issues, real issues
than read any more.
so perhaps I should listen to myself and shut u.....................
