Another YouTube video the coal authority has committed on it shows they are always watching and listening but some can't see that posting the click bait titles just gets the actions of the local loons or authority interested

Just took a look to see what they said, a suprisingly measured response I thought....


Although the reply by "another group" to the Coal authorities message can't really be called measured.

I have just looked at their latest on YouTube.

"What happened last night with the police".

I watched it in part before I lost the will to live, Mr Dixon does not have the best communicative skills. We all make berks of ourselves at some time, but posting it up on websites is a new slant. Their boat apparently broke down on way back from Drakes Island, Plymouth. They phoned coast guard, but had the police turn up. In a few words what it takes Mr Dixon about 20 minutes to explain, so here you have it.

They don't come across as the sharpest tools in the box and I think that they and their followers were probably made for each other.

The worry is, their income will be dropping in the present crisis and they start getting bold. They decide to go underground and get in trouble.Cursing

At best - They get rescued, and get (likely) fined to all ****.

At worst - They get a bit wiffy, but they're not a worry any more, hopefully the worst goes when we're allowed back out to play.

I do! I listen carefully to their exploring videos and this channel NEVER mentions the name of the location and where it is only the county for instance Cumbria or North Wales. How is that telling everyone the location of their next explore? If they come to my location again I will take them on an underground explore that i think even you lot haven't been! Oh and get your mine names and history correct before publishing! IP: 2.26.148.211

It's entirely possible to work out the location of virtually all the locations, so not naming them doesn't keep them off the radar. Particularly landowners - for example, the Coal Authority, who have commented on their YouTube videos.

Essentially, access to abandoned mine workings isn't helped by people splashing it all over the internet. Particularly when they're not well-equipped.

ExploringWithFighters never venture underground without guides who know the mine working and know how to navigate all the tunnels etc safely. They wear the appropriate clothing and footwear, they use lighting that can be adjustable depending on their underground locations. They always seek permission to enter locations lawfully and never cause any damage to locations. They respect their surroundings. Would you suggest that they stay away and left to explore without proper guidance? ExploringWithFighters at least take their public along with them to explore saving these public followers actually going there themselves? IP: 2.26.148.211

Sorry, too busy laughing! Laugh

No, they don't, at all, ever.. For a start, never ever seen them with any helmet/hard hat, head protection of any sort, assuming there's anything inside those heads to protect, listening to the BS and utter drivel that comes out of them, and the maturity levels they display for their age, doubtful.

And who can forget wrapping their shoes in carrier bags to stop them getting wet?!!

Stop talking **** mate, there is zero access whatsoever to one of the places they have a vid. I'm not giving them views and clicks to see if there are others, but it's quite likely.

As for the safety aspects, they haven't got a clue about safety, navigation, appropriate gear or lighting. They might think they have, but anyone with any experience knows exactly how close this lot are to causing a callout for the nearest rescue team... that's assuming one of you halfwits has figured out how to arrange that, which is doubtful.

I am sorry to come on this strong and possibly upset some people, but feel need to drive a message home.

i am 75 and seen a fairly adventurous life.

I have seen, in order of my life:

A terrorist bombing were people were killed
A person killed with karate
A gory road accident caused by someone attempting a U turn through a gap in the central reservation of a duel carriageway in Land Rover towing a trailer.
An experienced mine explorer who came out of a level of a mere 10 metres with head streaming blood through going underground with no helmet.

The right image on my safety cartoon above was memory prompted.

Hmm, that's my group. Let me know if you see any of their posts in future, I'll remove them and weed out the members. Not the first group to be removed, Northern Monkeys were thrown out too.
