As you are more than aware Nigel, I did publicly apologise for the
But you seem unwilling to let this lie.... not surprising as it does kind of
suit your needs to keep bringing it up when you have nothing else to say...
Having said I apologised, in light of yours and Pauls continual attacks and
attempts to force your ideals on others, perhaps the analogy was more
fitting than I first realised.

I'm sure Paul will be very happy to explain the childish nonsense that went
on there Steve. I note however that personal attacks, as usual, are all
are available. It was not PAUL or I that were detecting next to the
Thornborough Henges! It was detectorists!
As for your very unpleasant attack on me Steve (and you will know what I
mean if you re-read it and reflect a moment) characterising me as nasty and
Heritage Action as comprising “brownshirts” is becoming a tiresome pattern.
We are, I suppose, entitled to share the view of many responsible
detectorists that a detecting rally here was unacceptable. Also, to share
Heritage’s lack of enthusiasm for holding the event on a “World Heritage
landscape. Also to share the view of the Thornborough Henges Consultation
Committee that "it would not be good to start seeing finds from around the
appearing on internet sites such as E-Bay”? And, I suppose, to point out to
Britarch that two of the three most saleable items are now on sale on EBay?
And, not being detectorists or detector retailers, to find it difficult to
anything good about this event and to think that if David wished to show
good side of detecting the Thornborough Rally was exquisitely ill-chosen
If the above views are symptomatic of “something really not very healthy
going on inside” me then mia culpa, although I suppose you saying so is
beyond the AUP.
