Since Planetary Pursuit was instigated presumably to encourage a enhanced geocaching activity, I have become aware of a considerable number of geocaching finds that appear to be "armchair finds" As an example one paid up member recorded finds in Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Australia, in one day (today) and yesterday recorded finds in Australia, Iceland, Christmas island, Indonesia, and Guam. The day before that in South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, Antarctica, Saudi Arabia, UAE, I could go on and on....
Even given the some time logging errors this seems impossible.
As our numbers increase it seems more and more are "armchair finds" I wonder what other geocachers think.
Are we policing our activity correctly indeed is Geocaching.com doing enough in this regard
Finally should we have a name and shame column or even a scan code on geocaches to verify finds.
We have a great hobby shame that some (ab)users are miss using it.
