Focus on Metal Detecting: Blisstool Users Find This Hilarious

I see that I now have readers on the "Blisstool and America Forum". Blisstools make site-wrecker metal detectors which have received varying assessments in the UK detecting world. We can see from this forum just what kind of people are fans of such machines, those who think expressing concerns about the effects of policies on artefact hunting are "hilarious" and think the preposition "to" is spelt "too" and "vid's" is the plural of videos. They also think the word "discussion's" is a plural and exclamation marks are full stops. In other words oikish poorly educated morons with metal detectors. There are a lot of them about, not all of them however are PAS partners.

This, according to BLISSTOOLUK, the Moderator of the US-based forum that welcomes such folk, is a sentence:
What a hilarious read from a right comedian!!Keep em coming,your (sic)  killing me!!! 
Another moderator (Ysbytymike from Ystradgynlais in S. Wales) and who managed to read the whole top page of the blog in less than three seconds flat, seems to be more interested in my sex life:  
He really is a very sad little man.. Why doesn't he just go out and get laid, for goodness sake. "All that hostility". I suspect he could do with a good talking too ..   Doesn't he realise that other people feel their opinion count as well as his? 
Any time Mr Ysbytymike that you wish to articulate your alternative opinions on any of the issues raised here, the comments section of this blog are open to you. Fire away. But let's keep on topic. So give us all "a good talking to" about artefact hunting and collecting, explain your take on all this but keep it civil please, and less of the personal stuff. Please, be my guest. 

Anyway, while Mike gathers his thoughts, the rest of us can...  TAKE A GOOD LOOK at their forum, for these are precisely the sort of people the PAS wants to grab more and more millions of public quid to make into the "partners" of the British Museum, archaeological heritage professionals and to whom they want us all to entrust the exploitation of the archaeological record. Take a good look and decide what you think about that as a "policy". 

UPDATE 9th March 2013:
"Ysbytymike" is obviously still trying to gather his thoughts.  It may well be that "other people feel their opinion count[s]", but if they refrain from articulating it, it will never become known. 

Vignette: Many metal detectorists give the impression they think emoticons are text and the past is up for grabs.
