I would be very careful for what you all wish for, it might just come back
to haunt you. Your professional arrogance will undoubtedly lead to a fall.
It would pay you to take a look at countries where detecting is banned or
unrealistic restrictions are in place, invariably these are areas where
finds are still being made but never get reported or recorded.
For a group of people who claim to have a passion for learning about the
past, you actually draw very few if any lessons from it.
At the moment you have the good will and co-operation of the majority of
detctorists in the UK, which is growing all the time, you really are
seriosuly putting this at risk!
