+NattyBooshka Posted July 12, 2011 Share Posted July 12, 2011 Good point... there are thousands of potential weatherby scenarios already in place... and grandfathered in by the guideline... doesn't make sense to me. So are you advocating that we (geocachers in general) shouldn't have done anything? or do you have an alternative suggestion? I'm advocating either we put it down to a one off, or we take down all caches that would come under the new guideline until they are up to the standard. We shake hands with the police and agree to comply and we HAVE to comply. We can't just ignore the guideline like the countless caches that ignore the plastic bag rule. Rational logical thinking says that this was going to happen in the UK eventually as it did in the US years ago. The same thinking says it will happen again... if we don't abide by the new guideline, and one of those caches that don't comply is the next to be blown up, the game gets more than a black eye. If we'd put it down to the realistic thought that one day it would happen, and ignored it, we may have a black eye and a few caches removed... but at least eventually we wouldn't also alienate the police by not sticking to an agreement we have with them.
