Metal Detecting Under the Microscope: Discussion of BST on MD Forum

;;z I was interested in an element of two consecutive posts on in a thread discussing the ITV series "Britain's Secret Treasures" sponsored by the Portable Antiquities Scheme.  Yesterday, member "jimbotrucker" (Thu Jul 19, 2012 10:41 pm a Blisstool LTC64X v2i owner) moans about the reward money for Treasure finds (somehow threads on MD forums about good finds so often come back to how much money finders get). So he complains:
we spend a lot of time begging for land to go on, researching, digging up all the crap that other's throw away, & then when we finally find something of interest we get below market value offered 
Member "Gwawrer" (Thu Jul 19, 2012 11:15 pm, a Member of Cheshire Metal Detecting Society) is of the opinion:
Its better out of the ground and in your hand for the history or monetary value rather than left in the ground to rot doing nothing for anyone.
So holes in archaeological sites or assemblages are better than preserved sites? Is that what these "partners" of the PAS say?
