Not intended for GA mistakes?

Not much from the OP for a while, but let me chip this in.

Fun not allowed

Henry Crun, Clareprop and others taking a similar line: are you seriously suggesting that any activity undertaken for fun should have ZERO risk for third parties?

How the hell does one aircraft run up 350k per year in hanger charges?
