    Again journos hanging around this forum for their news, and broadcasting such "Reckless behaviour":crazy

    What's the diffo, go climb a cliff and its sport, climb a chimney or building "Reckless daredevils feeding an obsession"

    Go pot holing and get stuck...Sport...go draining..."thrill seeker"

    Chuck your granny out of a plane with a parachute... having fun.

    Get my drift, anyone got any other comparisons.

    ROSPA dont get involved with the so called sports do they.

    The only bit worth reading is the last paragraph which makes quite a change!

    RSPA are trying to hide it in case other people get the same idea. I love how the Police are almost like "We don't care". :D

    The amount of exposure Urban Exploration gets now, it's amazing this isn't a household term.

    Whoever commented to the papers is obviously not one of the people mentioned in the article.

    Why is it always a "new" craze. I thought people had been doing this for years?

    I love the RoSPA quote - what they're trying to say is "stop writing bloody articles about this!" :)

    That last one makes me laugh. They'd fucking love the scoop if someone died

    Bloody hell, there's an awful lot of prejudice towards us lot. Glad they actually included the quote from the "anonymous exporer" outlining the view that the places shouldn't become damaged. Usually newspapers skip over that bit.

    They don't HAVE to report someone's death. They do it because they make money.

    Ahh, i like the bit on the 'our say' where they say we are putting the lives of the contractors at risk?:crazy Absolute madness we left the site in exactly the same way we found it...SAFE. And to be brutally honest we even went out of our way not to ruin the screed that had been freshly laid on the staircase landings whilst ascending and descending snowhill.

    IMO they contradict themselves saying websites like 28days should be closed down so it doesn't give other folk ideas to copy. What do they think an article in a newspaper does if nothing more than generate intrest in UE[​IMG]

    They want to close down websites in the name of safety? What a democratic and free society we live in eh?
