I almost skipped over the most recent update from Warsaw, but then noticed the highlighted paragraphs at the end. This man, without a doubt, is paranoid, obsessed and in need of treatment. He’s what I call, excuse my language, “bat shit crazy”….
In recent years we have been called looters, thieves, pot robbers and vandals, and I suspect there will be new labels coming soon. You see everything we hoik (Wally’s word) out of the ground apparently is worthy of display in the Smithsonian and now they want our junk. You know, those unidentifiable, jagged and sometimes dangerous, crushed and mutilated pieces of crap.
Amazingly (as in rabbit out of a hat) Wally somehow found a way to seque from an interesting article titled “Virginia to Preserve Pocahontas Home” to an attack on us for selling our junk. Apparently the following paragraph in the Pocahontas article was the connection….?
“more than a dozen copper scraps at the longhouse site, ones that chemically match European trade items used by Jamestown’s colonists and also found at that site […] Only chiefs controlled copper at the time. Its red color was ritually significant in their mythology,”
Hmm, makes perfect sense to me? I can see why that brought on a need to troll metal detecting forums looking for something to tie us to Pocahontas? The connection he came up with? Are you ready for this? Here it comes….SCRAP METAL!! Damn, holy cow, knock me over….what a travesty! What next? This unsavory practice needs to be looked into!
If you think I am making too much of this I am sorry. Paul Barford not only hates detectorists, he hates the United States with a passion, and for him to insert himself into our pastime, our affairs and our lives is obnoxious.
Wally, mind your own damn business and while you are at it, consider getting a job.
