Can someone call a Guinness World Records person... about 100 finds in a minute 

Finding caches and logging caches are independent activities.  While these are clearly bogus, where are auto logging tools that can post found it logs at that rate even if it took weeks to find the caches.   In the "old days" people would find caches, then come home and log what they found that day, rather than immediately log a find with the app as they find the cache.

I am aware of that, and, apart from FTF’s, I have never logged a cache in the field. I was just making a point of how clearly bogus these logs are

Would such a tool be set up to log the finds at the time the tool was run, or to enter the date for when the find was made?

Even though it's the weekend, swift action was taken by Geocaching HQ and this account is now locked.  There is no need for any further reports.  Thank you to TeamTJ (and probably others) for their earlier reports.

The tool might not know when a find was made.   Someone might use a handheld GPS to find caches then log them later.  That's how this game was played before mobile phones and an app with an internet connection was used for geocaching.   Some still prefer to log their finds at a later time.

People still find caches, then come home and log what they found that day, rather than immediately log a find with the app as they find the cache.
