Friday Retrospect: UK Metal Detectorists, Mentally a Breed Apart

Needless to say, the threats of a UK metal detectorist in response to somebody trying to look more deeply into the hobby were the usual empty ones: 'UK Metal Detectorists, Mentally a Breed Apart', PACHI Sunday, 17 February 2013. This type of behaviour in the UK detecting community is in my experience endemic the moment one stops patting them on the head and slapping their back, and the constant inability of ambassadors of the hobby like this to display any form of analytical thought casts doubt on the ability of the sort of chip-on-the-shoulder people that take up metal detecting in general to actually be a good source of information about their analysis of the primary data in the field.
