Clan Riffster Posted December 15, 2011 Share Posted December 15, 2011 I call heavily biased paraphrasing... Guilty as charged. From reading the heavily biased comments made by you and a few others, I assumed such communication techniques were the norm. Is that not the case? Sort of a "Hello, Mr Kettle. This is Mr Pot" kind of thing. How else can we explain such snark as this? split the hair and rally the troops those who complain about the e.t just can't afford to go so they complain cow pasture in the desert sage brush hugging side of this debate wrings their hands the intrinsic wrongness Save the cow pies Oh for crying out loud.. I walked down a sidewalk and left prints in the snow. I hope no one notices But we know by now that you lack imagination outside of NJ, right? OMG Right?? to ram your point home or cow pie that dies under foot or tire Except for what the cows trample and eat if what's-her-name from the BLM Apparently you are the professional on desert tracks the finger wagglers A few squashed sagebrush Too bad you can't see the bushwack trails through the trees Do you honestly think no one would drive it? Puleeze! Nothing there but cachers trashing the environment Driving around & yelling "take that, momma Gaia!" And cows, but cows don't count The remaining choice puts you in the "pot-stirrer" category maybe those where created by the aliens themselves? yeap, here's evidence of an UFO A huge mountain is being made out of a very small mole hill those who have been arguing it isn't have no true knowledge of the area Reno is burning now....<snip>, probably started by Geocachers and the cows will be bothered by them not at all and is being SO exaggerated But everybody needs something to whine about You're not really fooling anyone those who know nothing about it claim it's horrible your vast experience of desert impact rub everyone's nose in C'mon just fall on the sword why don'tcha comparing what goes on in the deserts of Nevada with the woods of the south need to start running them over with the car, roundup won't even kill that stuff This picture looks like a trail that's been there longer than the alien head Honey Badger don't care" when it comes to off roading the evil sage brush killers wave the flag of blame over i think its from a the heard of bull This is a symbolic debate a better whipping boy that is in fact a non-issue on the site used for example I find none for this location while poking at your real motivation save the sage brush and cow pies A big pissing match personal vendetta with the exception of garbage, there isn't much you can do to "hurt" the area keep the tree huggers happy The fragileness of the desert in this area has "left the building" East Coast perceptions big sarcastic splash sacred image is in question unworthy of hand wringing or gnashing of teeth it is a roadside dump of cast off trash, construction debris, and cow pies tree huggers Trust me, the crap grows everywhere the yippy god of political correctness open their eyes to the evel underbelly of geocaching it's all dirt, sagebrush and Joshua Trees. There's nothing to damage CO = Cat Herder but what exactly is it there that can be torn up? I guess China needs to be banned now Not every weed needs government protection Somewhere there is a teapot brewing a tempest there is soooo freakin' much of this blessed desert Lawd Lawd. This is sooo freakin' rich You'd think geocachers were playing whack-a-mole with endangered owls Maybe we should all just move into outer space to protect the planet chest beating and gnashing of teeth Time to BAN Geocaching, everywhere we leave a mark unless you can quote the posts that support your answers. Well, I can try... jholly: Cars, has to be the cars. Certainly hundreds of people walking the same path in the desert simply wouldn't leave a trail, now would it? t4e: if an area is ecologically sensitive there should be appropriate signage The_Incredibles: Trails in the desert? There are trails everywhere. Not to mention roads. Personally I'm not going to get worked up about it. Are there any rare plants or animals in that area? PokerLuck: Let's not go overboard here just because something we did is visible from space. Your house is certainly visible from space. Are you going to tear it down because of that? sbell111: The 'trails' could be normal trails caused by several hikers taking the same route, for all we know. Snoogans: The area isn't pristine wilderness or wildlife refuge. It's most probably BLM land <snip>. So what if there's a geotrail. skraeling: Humans have been leaving their mark on planet earth for eons.<snip> The great wall of China How - exactly - are those different/better/worse/ok than what is happening now? sbell111: What I am legally permitted to do trumps the whims of the cache owner. t4e: what is so special about a desert? Snoogans: That area so close to the highway, BLM land or not, is potential commercial property and unworthy of hand wringing or gnashing of teeth. LostinReno: Have you ever been to the Nevada desert? If not, maybe visit before you make a judgement. t4e: No one yet has proved that the said marks are left by geocachers. LostinReno: A big pissing match started by people that don't even cache in the area or much less live on this side of the country. LostinReno: NPS is one thing. How much BLM land is there in New Jersey? LostinReno: It's just humorous to me when some east coast tree huggers think there's this huge impact on a desert flat that is on public land. LostinReno: To put it in perspective of the east coasters. The red-haired witch: Hey, my house is so big it's visible from space! I think that covers all the salient points... Quote Link to comment
