On a metal detecting forum near you, member "Denis" from North Devon who joined just a year ago does not understand the censorship that goes on all the time to present the vanilla face of UK metal detecting. After all, they can't have forum members revealing the real nature of the hobby to the public who subsidise it. Innocently he asks 'What's going on?' (Mon Nov 17, 2014 2:17 pm):
Went to my posts page and found one of my posts had been removed! It was not offensive, racist, or sexist, in fact it wasn't any ..ist Other posts had also been removed from the subject post page These were also not offensive Has someone overstepped the mark? Or is this a genuine error?Nope, it's tekkie hypocrisy. It's easier for them to hide and ignore a problem than face it. The PAS do the same as their 'partners'. It's basically the leitmotif of the whole antiquity collecting industry. You'll not find a smidgen of honest discussion anywhere at all in the entire milieu (the English-speaking part of it at least).
