What Irks you most? in General geocaching topics Posted December 27, 2015 · Edited December 27, 2015 by The Rat This thread is so long that I'm sure the majority of things that irk me have been mentioned, so I'll mention something that very well might not have been mentioned: poorly written cache pages, and by that I mean ones with bad grammar and spelling or are sloppy or careless about facts. When geocaching was new around here, circa 2002, if someone had a misspelling on a cache page, someone (me, for example) would mention that in a log or note, or might email the CO, who would be expected to edit the cache page properly. People still do that on rare occasion, especially if it's a puzzle and the edit is important to the solution, but for the most part that is now considered bad form. If people are too lazy to use a spell-checker and are semi-literate, that's now OK because "it's just for fun." That's the same mindset that gives every player on the kid's soccer team a trophy and every student gets an A, at least if a parent goes in and complains. I'm sure inaccurate coordinates must have been mentioned, but there are other kinds of inaccuracy or sloppiness that are irksome. For example, the other day we were looking for a cache where the hint said the cache was on the right side of the trail. The trail was a loop! "Right" depends on whether you choose to do it clockwise or counterclockwise.
