San Diego Whiners Thread in West and Southwest Posted August 27, 2008 Time for another rant... Okay, I know I'll eventually regret this, but what is up with this armchair geocaching (logging virtual caches without actually visiting the site). Admittedly, I've done a couple of virtuals that allowed me to log the cache without visiting the site.... didn't seem right. I've found several armchair logs on my Zoo virtual. One cacher from Germany was in Michigan and Denmark on the same day logging virtuals. Another cacher (also from Germany) logged virtuals in a half dozen scattered states on the same day. They claimed to have visited, but had not. I know it's only a game, I know people will play the game the way they want to, I know people will set up their own rules, I know it just doesn't matter at the end of the day. It just seems to me that the basic requirement of a cache, virtual or otherwise, is to actually be at that location, whether it be for the view, a little history, a clever hide or what have you. I'm tempted to delete these armchair logs, but I know in the end it will be just more of a headache and just not worth it. Oh well, it's only a game. Thanks for letting me rant. Oh, yeah, got a golden retriever puppy today. Look for pictures soon. D! Delete! I say y' gotta hold 'em t' score 'em. I agree. They actually want us to delete them: Cache Maintenance The cache owner will assume all responsibility of their cache listings. The responsibility of your listing includes quality control of posts to the cache page. Delete any logs that appear to be bogus, counterfeit, off topic, or not within the stated requirements. Well, in that case... deleted six logs tonight, all cachers from Germany. Once cacher actually "borrowed" a picture from a previous cacher's log in their post! Cheeky monkey! D!
