To answer your question, I came down strong on the Dent's Run nonsense.

THAT happened when I pointed out , on another thread, that dissenting voice/opinion wasn't allowed. Only affirming views of ghost stories and magic wands. THAT constituted "questioning the mod's". Which got me 6 month's out. It expires 11/25.
I was only banned once before over there. It was for a week about 4 years ago, so I haven't been a problem child over the years. But the Florida mod banned me for a YEAR under the guise of "threatening a mod or site member" (or something like that). Totally over the top punishment for a comment that wasn't a threat, just a statement of fact.

Too bad the head mod over there doesn't have the courage to shut down the PA and FL mods. They're perpetuating the myth that this Dents Run guy has been selling for six years now. Bogus claims of found treasure make all us detectorists look like liars and con artists. Not a good portrayal of a great hobby...

Tpmetal, nice to see you here! I'll be sure to keep my opinions about non-metal detecting subjects to myself on this site! I know I got carried away on a few threads over there.

You were fine, no more carried away than I was or have been.

They do work. They take peoples money under false pretenses. I can take two pieces of copper wire shape them into an L and find just as much as one will find with one of those pieced of junk.

I might even find more than you will find with a LRL and those that sell them know that they do not work but they will tell you that you are not using them correctly when you can not find anything wit one.

I will slide my soap box back under the bed for the time being.
I feel the same way about photo dowsing as well.

But ....... of course you know this is totally scientific, right ? Albeit as yet: "Undiscovered science". After all, they once thought the earth was flat, and that heavier than air flight was impossible. Thus, some day, likewise, science will come along to rescue photo-dowsing as well. Repent of your statement !

Can we please tone down what happens on other forums... We generally look down upon posting about what happens on other forums and we would appreciate that their dirty laundry isn't brought here.

Another Carolina Greeting!

Welcome to the Friendly, intelligent, social, and reasonable forums. Fairly new myself, I've found that from novice to accomplished experts, people are treated with, fairness and reason by the members, Admins and Mods. There is no bias for or against members that I've noticed. A rather well moderated forum...much better than most for any subject or interest.

Welcome to the forum,
from the Ozarks, in Arkansas.

Any place that limits the passing of knowledge, is no place for me. Thank you Friendly Metal Detecting Forum, for being here.

100% Agree!

I know I hate to see FMDF run down on other sites or our Team here poked fun at.

Welcome!
I browse, but do not post over on that other site, seems to be a funky blend of great finds and let's say unconfirmed finds.

Had fun reading that WIKI LRL article. Had fun thinking about how holes would be "shot all through it", by the LRL faithful. For example, this quote :

"... A study by Sandia National Laboratories proved the Lifeguard to be completely useless..."


Well, you know what that means, don't you ? Those Sandia National Lab people A) weren't using it right, and B) need more practice.

Presto, problem solved

Possibly. Or someone questioned my having been time-outed. Which would constitute "questioning the mod's". Which would lead to immediate deletion, ban, etc... Who knows ?
