Geocache Vandal - Grope?


Followers 4

Recommended Posts

I heard recently on the geocacher podcast about a sad individual in the states who had taken it upon themselves to destroy/remove geocaches in the name of protecting the environment from the ravages of the countryside by geocachers??? Sadly we now have our own saddo in the UK, by the user name of gordybrown, who has also adopted this pathetic stance!

 

This loser has decided to start removing caches and stealing the contents. Hardly original, and obviously just looking for attention? Leaves the following comment for the items stolen..

This has been "groped" (GROup for Environmental Protection). It has been removed and destroyed.

Your environmental vandalism will NOT be tolerated.

 

Before any of you morons bleat on about us removing this "geolitter" (your phrase not ours!), remember that dropping LITTER (ie these pathetic containers) is a CRIMINAL offence punishable by a fine up to £1,000.

 

So please, feel free, go into the police and make a complaint.

Looks like a very new member and only one TB hotel decimated with the loss of 6 items, but please be aware. This individual will surely get bored and move on to spoiling something else eventually, but please be aware for the time being. I was tempted to message him/her, but refrained as that would be giving the person the attention they are craving - what a sad, lonely, and empty life one must lead to want to be this spiteful???

Do we really need another thread on this :blink: ?

see 'Envioronmental' Cache Vandals, Cache trashers who destroy to 'protect the environment'

 

I know it happens all the time and we have many posts, but still annoying! It is just a warning to fellow cachers in my area (East of England - I should have highllighted that). If the thread is not of interest to you, or does not apply to your area, please ignore.

MBFace is referring to this topic which is about the same individual and over 100 posts long. Giving this person all this attention is just increasing the gratification for him/her. The account is extremely well known, having a extensive history.

So, if the account is extremely well known why can't that IP address be blocked? At least it would be a start.

Possibly because, if it's anything like 99% of the private domestic internet accounts in this country, it won't have a static IP address. All they would have to do is reboot their connection to get a new IP off their ISP, leaving somebody else with their (banned) IP address.....
