Extremely dangerous cache....how do I get it removed?

This cache: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...=y&decrypt=

 

is placed in a very dangrous location. It is right next to a road where cars go very fast. In addition, the cache is placed in a patch of cacti, causing great injury. I do not believe this cache should be listed as it may lead to people getting hit by cars.

 

How do I get it removed?

You select Ignore this Cache.

Not every cache is for every person. If you don't feel safe, skip it and move on to the next one. Just because you don't think it's safe doesn't mean it needs removed from the website.

 

You are wrong because it DOES need to be removed. Someone could get seriously hurt trying to find this cache, and they wouldn't even know it.

 

So you are saying I can hide a cache with coordinates that are near train tracks and not tell anyone that a train may come and hit them at any time? You may want to consider changing your policy.

The cache has been there since 3/23/2005, and it has 52 finds. I checked the cache page, and there isn't any reference to any geocachers getting killed by cars, or dying, due to cactus punctures.

 

Perhaps you should look where your going to avoid thorns and cars :anibad:

This won't happen, because GC.com will not approve geocaches near active rail roads. I think you should find a safer hobby.

Cache placer has 17603 finds. Person complaining has 1 find.

 

What a superficial idiot you are. All it takes to increase your find number is to write a "found" note in a cache. I hope you have more mental capacities than this.

 

Gosh! I hope this thread isn't locked before you get a chance to insult me. :o

Maybe you should get your head out of your butt. Just because someone doesn't get hit, doesn't mean it won't happen. How many times can you die? Yes, ONCE/.

Well, you could, but it likely wouldn't get listed on this site as the guidelines restrict caches placed near active railroads. :anibad:

 

Again, just because YOU don't think it's safe doesn't mean it needs to be removed. There are caches in all kinds of "dangerous" places. You assess the risks and make the decision to hunt or not hunt any cache.

 

Oh, and I'd imagine they'd know it if someone got seriously hurt.....at least, I think I'd know it if I got seriously hurt.....

You are completly missing the point. The cache does not state that cars will be barreling down at you while you are sticking your face in a spikey cactus patch. This cache needlessy endangers people.

 

Think about it like this. I could open up an ice cream shop. But my ice cream shop puts razor blades in the ice cream. It's up to you to assesss the risk whether to buy ice cream or not. So you cut your mouth on my ice cream. You go to the police. The police say "Hey buddy, its up to YOU to decide whehther u want to buy ice cream from this guy."

I'm afraid IV-Warrior isn't wrong. The decision of whether or not to attempt a cache is ultimately up to no one except the person seeking it. If you think it's dangerous, don't attempt it. Judging from the logs, plenty of other people were perfectly capable of making that decision for themselves.

 

By the way, if you're going to complain about a cache at least have the courage of your convictions and use your normal geocaching name instead of a sock puppet account.

This cache is much more dangerous, should it not be allowed?

 

If you don't tell them that they may be killed, yes it should be removed.

 

 

Most of my caches are located in Rattlesnake, Scorpion, Coyote, Mtn Lion, and Black Bear habitat. Should I hold cacher's hands, to protect them from themselves? :anibad:

 

The first 53 finders survived, and wrote their found it logs, obviously, after 1 1/2 years, the death potential for this cache isn't that bad. :o

Well, someone here's missing something, but it isn't me. I think that MOST of us are intelligent to realize that if we're near a road cars could come "barreling down at us" and will pay a little attention to our surroundings.

Troll? or just someone who had a bad experience geocaching and is looking to get his account banned?

 

The latter. Check their single find.

 

Increasing your find count is as easy as clicking a button. I have found over 1000 caches by my own count, so don't waste evyerone's time with your idiocy.

If that one gets removed, that means all the micros on gaurdrails should be removed. And thats like 50% of all the caches out there :anibad:B):o

Last cache I did I saw a bear in the woods. It is my understanding that they can be dangerous animals. Wait, so that means every cache in the woods needs to be removed to.

Heck, I drive my car to trail heads to go caching. Driving is dangerous too, so any cache you can't walk to from your house should be removed as well.

So all that is left are events. Events held at your house, and anybody who isn't within walking distance can't come. So wait, with no other caches out there, what would you talk about at the event? :DB):D

In most areas, tampering with food, especially adding razors is a felony. This has nothing to do with geocaching. :anibad:

Your a coward for not using your real account to post this garbage!

If anyone should be banned, it's someone who places a cache where people can die. You can bet I'm angry, becuase it almost happened to me.

 

So you're looking for someone to blame?

 

Mannnn, why can't folks take responsibility for their own actions and experiences? :anibad:

 

Almost, only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.... :o

Good that you didn't come looking for my cache you disgusting sack of fetid butter. I have killed geocachers many times and yet they still come to me.

Thank you. I really needed that to get my smug superior feeling for the day. :anibad:

I did some hiking in a local suburban forest preserve today. Plenty of places I could have died, if I were stupid.

You mean you were incapable of assessing the situation and making an informed decision about whether or not to attempt the find?

 

Have you identified the exact nature of your intellectual failure yet? I mean, was it an inability to recognize a hazardous situation as you approached, or was it an inability to say "Nah, I'm not going to try that one"?

Is it bad that I want people to die looking for my cache, even though I warned them?

 

You get some sort of points or special award for that, don't you? And I think the rules have something about double points awarded if you can kill someone with a micro.

 

Maybe leave a live scorpion as the FTF prize in a film canister!

YOu think thats funny? THAT IS DANGEROUS. Children go on these geocaches and have a great time. Yet we have sick deviants like you that try to make this some kind of cuthroat activity. If I wanted to do that I would go join a gladitorial battle with a bunch of sick freaks like you so I could eviscerate all of you fools and stick you up on spikes. Does that entertain you? ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED

I figured out what his failure is, he doesn't know how to:

Look where he is going.

I want to know the real story here.

 

seems this is a smurf account intended to try to cause trouble for the cache placer. Maybe just a really dumb guy? (special?)

 

no, cactus can't hurt you unless you grab them.

 

no, standing near a road won't hurt you, and roads don't move suddenly.

 

 

the cache placement appears to be near a bike trail, there doesn't appear to be mildly dangerous, not to mention extremely dangerous.

 

Not sure what you are going for here, but if you are truly concerned about the danger, you shouldn't be, that location is much safer than most city sidewalks.
