i really enjoy our hobby but cant stand it when you have some detectorists who will lie about where they found stuff just to stop you finding anything good. im so glad im not like that and am just glad to go out detecting and if a mate or myself find anything im just as glad for them as i am for myself.

I took it that the capitalised ODD referred to

Oppositional Defiant Disorder

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oppositional_defiant_disorder

quite a few detectorists and vexatious bloggers fit in that category!   Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

odd creatures is right  Grin, like you stever i also enjoy tectin just for tectin, but there exists in the detecting community a large number of greedy jelous people, which detracts from the enjoyment of the hobby, and it seems to me that the more you get involved in this hobby the more rot you will discover,,there are however the majority of tecies that are decent people,, so it all comes down to what you want to hear or how involved you want to get,, im now not a member of any club,and im a tectin partership of 1  Grin and just tect on me own land,,do i find many finds? yes i do and sometimes choose not to post finds due to the above.

Theres nothing unique about cheating in Metal detecting. It goes on across the board in hobbies, sports and relationships. All it comes down to is human nature to desire Money, attention and enjoyment. Most people are happy to get what they've earned however there is and always will be that element that want more more more and will cross lines to get it.

Look at Lance Armstrong!
