Go Up Go Down

So Seldom makes a profit on metal detecting and says forget all the hobbyist who metal detect for enjoyment.

He tells them to go fishing instead and get out of his way.

It is his special interest that is important to him $$$ 70% of his income from metal detecting.
Makes me wonder what sites he has plundered to make so much profit.
 
It is clear to see what, are should I say what he promotes for himself. He cries because 40 years of his way has not worked. He has almost gotten the hobby banned because he has his head stuck in the sand. Refuses to try anything new. Its his way are no way.

Oh yeah his way has not been working.

Or has it?

He is making money so I it works for him. While everyone else is being banned from metal detecting in there areas.

It does not bother him. He says be careful you might stir the pot and I'm still making $$$$.

So he name calls and accuses others to shut them down from any promotion of the hobby
of Metal detecting with elected officials. Cannot take a chance on messing up his profit margin. He makes 70% percent of his income off metal detecting. How sad is he?
So he gets him self set up as a moderator so he can stop any new ideas and still make
his  $$$$. Must keep a watchful eye on his profit margin. How sad is he.


So it turns out.
He Seldom has a clue to what would help.
He SELDOM thinks about it.
He Seldom thinks of the Hobby. (Thinks of his profit $$$)
He Seldom is open to new ideas stuck in 40 years past he says himself.
What a great source of help that makes him for the hobby today.

He spends more time moaning about what was, than doing any good.


But as seen in his past posts he is very often confrontational and with others who promote the hobby. So if he spends his time shutting down idea to help metal detecting what does that make him. Is he a help to metal detecting are just obstacle.

So he has more negative things to say and insults when his $$$ is at stake.

Now that is a good moderator with a special interest all his own.

So you SELDOM have to wonder what he wants. $$$$

So while SELDOM lobbies for himself he will SELDOM take up the cause that risks his
$$$$$ and SELDOM speak for the hobbyist in metal detecting.

He just SELDOM thinks of them.

So start from with in if you want to help Metal Detecting and clear out some old Moderators
that SELDOM help the group as a whole. They just get puffed up with them selves and
tear down the hobby.

Read his past comments on others post and you soon see where the bad apple is and where
his interest are.

      

So it ends up SELDOM has seldom anything good to offer to promote metal detecting.
How sad is he.

So I guess people just got use to SELDOM counting on him.

I know the hobby can SELDOM count on him now.

Time for some new changes at thunting.com.

See I SELDOM back up from a loud mouth who speaks out of both sides of his mouth.
You are one and should be removed as a moderator. You do more damage than good.


You should be SELDOM listened too, maybe thunting.com will see to that.

 I never said we could not use change I said you were fighting the wrong people and going about it the wrong way. But you don't want to listen your idea is the only one that will work.

Profit yeah I make a profit hell I bet I pay more taxes then you make and thats why I and several others are mods we are very knowable and our field and are here to help not cry because things aren't going our way.

You want me removed fine then what you got 3 mods left running the place stopping the scammers posting new stuff to talk about then you will cry because they don't agree with you then there is 2 then one that will make you happy metal. Every things always the mods fault  I did not disagree with you as a mod I disagreed as a member and as a person who has been fighting this battle for years but you johnny come lately know it all and will not learn from our mistakes.

Metal this is just a hobby to you but to some of us its a way of life. Now that its hit close to home your upset will I am sorry but maybe you should have got involved last year when they tried to shut down the Texas beaches or a couple years back when they tried to make you get permits in FL, but it did not effect you so why worry right. Some of us care about the whole county and will stand up even if we are not effect

Time for some new changes at thunting.com.

What kind of changes do you propose? Right now, the 4 most active moderators are making your efforts look pale by comparison. So far all you have done in this thread is bluster and blow hard without even asking what anyone else is doing. That's very selfish and disingenuous. I happen to know what I've done to preserve this hobby but with your attitude, you'll never find out. I doubt any of the others here will bother with you either since you're turned into a gigantic crybaby. With wings.

Guys, I'm unlocking this topic. No matter how upset you get with this guy, others may want to comment and it's just not fair to limit the discussion to moderators and the thread originator.

Thank You GD.

I send at least one letter  Letter NOT E-Mail a month on subjects of my interest to Congressman, Senators, Local and State Representatives .

E - Mails seem to have little to NO responses but I do get a Letter back even if Rubber Stamped back some times.

I am not sure who locked it but yea its better unlocked.

Guys talking to your local politicians is a good idea. Bashing the special interest groups bad idea. Going into battle without the facts bad bad idea and thats whats happened here. Talking to one or two office candidates not news worthy then fighting with members because they think you did more harm then good bad idea. I posted here as a member not as a moderator but metal decided that just because I was a mod he would take pot shots at me. Some folks just can't listen to reason some folks are clueless on what is going on but think they know how to fix it with their one good lifetime idea ain't happening,

Metal best you move on to other subjects because if you continue to post like your last few post think someone will show you the door it want be me looks like you done pissed off everybody here. My mail box is full of emails asking why you are taking your down rating of   mods and am sure the others have some also we are not going to listen to much more.

Seldom

I suspect that MetalMaster himself may have locked it to have the last word after he gave you a double serve - or so he thought. What he did was block out only the folks who might actually have agreed with him.

Seldom, most times I despise a committee because they normally take a good idea and turn it into a match of dueling egos. When lobbying a politician, however, often times the cooler head prevails and is just what is needed. MetalMaster appears to believe that only the single, angry man should apply for the job. As long as you do it his way.
