+buttaskotch Posted February 2, 2009 Share Posted February 2, 2009 P.S. Nice troll. Exactly!!!!!!!! Your all getting your legs pulled here people............. I beg to differ...this isn't the work of a troll. Look at her membership date. It's September 22, 2008. That means she's been at least moderately interested in this hobby since that time. Do you really think she'd sign up for a website and then wait 4 1/2 months to start trolling?? There are people who've been into this sport for years who have less than 10 posts on these forums. Does that make them trolls? Of course not. I also think it's rude of you to respond in such a fashion. If you think she's a troll and got a good laugh about it, fine...but please keep it to yourself. I (along with the others on here) prefer to be helpful and offer sound advice and opinions without being judgemental. I think it took a lot of pride swallowing to come on here and admit her failure. Most folks would have just said "screw this" and disappeared. But she at least is making an attempt to find out why she might have had a bad first experience, so let's ALL just go with that and try to help. IMO, it's guys like YOU that give hobbies like this a bad name. "Ooh...let's make fun of the noob!!" Lots of maturity and guidance on display there... I, for one, hopes she reads through this entire thread and comes away with a new sense of encouragement. I love reading posts from new cachers. I like trying to help those who have questions, and I REALLY love to read the ones who come on here all excited when they tell the story of their first find and how exhilerating it was. So again, if you want to be helpful...great. If not, just sit back and quietly get your kicks out of the thread and move on. No one here appreciates your attitude. Well, well, well. Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. I think that Crockett felt that this thread smelled fishy. I have been following it as well and think its fishy as well. Which led me to ask a question to the original poster. Why tell a geocaching forum that this sport is horrible and that they never will do this again? She isn't trying to attempt to find out why, all her posts have said that its not for her. Crockett and others felt that this was designed to either get a rise out of cachers or get others to outpour their love. I think your above post was much more negative in nature that what was posted by Crockett. Quote Link to comment
