    :(

    A shame this, the 'Scotsman' is usually pretty balanced in it's reporting, rather than this kind of 'article by numbers' nonsense.

    Gahhh! i fucking hate the press. if they took 5 fucking minutes to look at some reports on here they would realise that there are little to no explorers on this site that will physically break into a site.

    It's usual lazy journos. The editor will have head about urbex from his teenage kids or at a dinner party, and he'll have got a junior reporter to knock up a quick story with some rent-a-cop quotes.

    How did siologen manage to take the cred for the big time forth bust up. I call shenanigans, I'm guessing he gave her the tip.

    Weak!

    What's wrong with that? Banditry is a noble profession, right up there with being a highwayman or vagabond.

    Any of those sound way better than Urban Explorer. What kinda nerd shit is that. $10,000 of cameras, photomatix, flickr pro and 500 forums. YEEEEEEEEEAH BOI...

    :rolleyes:
