+The GeoGadgets Team Posted April 12, 2006 Share Posted April 12, 2006 In our area of Geocache Heaven are some newbies who tend to destroy everything they touch. Well-planned, wonderfully executed Geocaches are getting trashed by these people. I'm not saying that they find the cache, exchange good stuff for garbage or anything (I think they've done that, but can't prove anything), but what they do is worse. - Caches with wonderful camouflage get left on the ground, exposed to the elements and geo-muggles; - They have broken cache components that make it impossible for the next person to locate or log the find; - They post blatant hints about the whereabouts of the cache for others, or email folks in the area to give them hints, or outright tell them where and how to find the cache. This is just ridiculous. They will destroy a cache and then post it as DNF, but say that they found parts of the cache on the ground, broken. At first it was thought that muggles were doing the deed, but after six or seven events like this, with them being the only finders in common, well, it is pretty obvious that they are the culprits. When gently confronted with the evidence they return a response that doesn't admit or deny, but asks what MY problem is, then ask, "why are you so uptight?" Yeah, maybe I'm too uptight. Maybe I put too much effort into this game and expect courtesy and respect in return, and that is asking too much. ARGH! Quote Link to comment
