+BAMBOOZLE Posted February 8, 2014 Share Posted February 8, 2014 (edited) I should be more clear about my position: whether I agree with a guideline or not, I always follow them all for my hides. I do not consider anything about them optional and I would consider lying to a reviewer about anything related to my hides unacceptable. In fact, I take great care in ensuring that my hides would not give anyone acid reflux for any reason. I avoid lamp-posts, transformers, fake sprinklers, etc. assiduously. What we are discussing here, however, is not about what I would hide, but what I would report. I consider that a different issue. It's one thing for me to hold myself to a high standard in my hides, but quite another for me to second-guess another cacher's interaction with a reviewer. Basically, if I report a cache as buried, I am implicitly making the claim that the hider lied to the reviewer about the cache placement. I am uncomfortable making such an accusation without further evidence. Maybe that is why I find cache cops so annoying: they seem happy to hurl that kind of accusation around. I think this is correct....as I said before, since no one can be 100% sure tools were used in making any of these hides why not just log a find and move on.....Good Grief ! I recently hid two regulars in a local large nature trail ( they love our caches and the traffic they bring to the park....we've held at least 3 events here as well )....it's a swamp area and believe me these caches are buried, one of the holes I found near the base of a tree was horizontal....I slipped in the container and covered the opening with a piece of log. Again...IF YOU DON'T KNOW THAT TOOLS WERE USED IN MAKING THE HIDE , WHY REPORT IT ? Edited February 8, 2014 by BAMBOOZLE Quote Link to comment
