    "Urban Explorer" banned for life...

    Just linking to the article. Personally I think "I didn't know" becomes less believable every additional time he explained how he ended up backstage.

    He knew this was a possibility. I know Disney was in the right, but I feel sorry for Adam. He had a deep appreciation for Disney and he expressed it a lot in his videos.

    Re: "Urban Explorer" banned for life...

    I have been watching Adam for awhile now and I knew it was wrong and I had this gut wrenching feeling every time he did it that he would get caught. He took the risk of this happening and he got caught. He loved Disney and it's sad to see this happen even though many others were with him such as his Epcot video. However the guy who sneaked onto that one former island attraction still hasn't been banned strange? Oh well I still like Adam and love his Videos. Also I don't believe he said "I didn't know" which he did he just didn't it as wrong, then again it is FOX News. Someone had to do it and I am glad he did.

    How could he be banned for life.. do they keep pictures in all the tickets booths of banned people? He could just wait ten years, then try to get back in are just do what Timmy said.

    im assuming they keep your biometrics on file so when you go to scan your fingerprint it doesn't work.

    Thats true, didn't think about that. Now he can just burn finger prints off or make fake prints with fake latex skin lol.

    But I agree he had it coming to him.

    Where does it say "I didn't know"? The article is actually right on on what he said.

    Trespass warning from Orange County. If he's found, he gets arrested.

    Disney for years has said they don't store any personal identifiers with their finger scans. All they are supposed to know is that print-x matches with ticket-x. That's it. It cannot be used to enforce a ban or Disney has been lying to us.

    What "banned for life" really means is that if he is caught in the park he could face trespassing charges that are a lot more serious than just getting escorted out of the park.

    It says it in the third paragraph from the bottom:

    "I never received any emails from Disney on what I was doing was wrong," said Adam
    To me that is a lame excuse. If the area was off limits to the general public he should have known that it was wrong to enter it. I don’t feel sorry for him.

    What I find fascinating isn't so much the fact that he got caught it's that he posted the various videos on Youtube. I'll skip the personal comments about intelligence and just say that if you are going into places you know you're not supposed to be in you probably shouldn't post videos of it and develop a cult following. He wanted attention. He got it. Recently there was a woman who robbed a bank and then bragged about it on Youtube... guess what she got caught too!
