I concur. Thirty years is a tad long for silence. And for any ghoul that steals from the dead, I have only utter contempt for.
From what I have seen of human nature, everything starts off small. Maybe metal detecting for a few nails and or coins. Maybe next time, that sewer pipe since no one's using it. Maybe the time after that, a brick and then a whole wall.
Collections have to be built and improved. Very few of us are satisfied with what we have in life.
As for myself, I take only pictures and leave only bootprints. I would like the next guy to be able to see what I saw and maybe someone a few years or decades to see the same things.
I know, high hopes in these days.
