+AneMae Posted July 28, 2013 Share Posted July 28, 2013 Here is a clip from our local news. These cachers talk about being "obsessed and addicted" I would say so, but not in a good way. Based on the treatment to other cachers both publicly and privately things have been less than friendly, to say the least. http://www.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=970043 Look at this publicly posted note on one cache, publicly calling out other cachers finds- based on nothing more than assumptions. "Went out after a bit of caching to do some maintenance on my own caches along the south end of the Loop. Stopped here as I felt this was a really easy find and the previous DNF's I can understand as this cache wasn't there, missing, gone. Even the tree it was on and it looks like it was taken out for some time now as the stump has even darken up. So I don't know about the three finders after, unless did they really do any caching, think not or just getting numbers, disappointed. I will email them. This cache now will be archived as there is no more hiding spot. Sorry to those that didn't find and thanks to those that really and I mean really did find it." I have also been on the receiving end of similar correspondence of this manner from some of these cachers. Sometimes over something as small as an NM logs. This type of "obsession and addiction" have given us many poor quality, dangerous and illegal caches. But if you raise concerns be prepared for nasty messages and accusations. When I got into caching I was under the impression there was some type of community spirit involved. After seeing how some cachers treat other cachers, I think we will just do this on our own. One of those cases where a few can ruin it for the many- because they take it too far. Quote Link to comment
