Moss Trooper Posted March 9, 2003 Share Posted March 9, 2003 This seems a very apt time to bring up a situation that has come to my notice. As a stay in the background moderator I am stunned at the selfish atitude of some people on this forum. And at this moment in time I don't particularly care who I upset. When a moderator is in negotiations with a national body to try and avert the situation that has happened in the USA and it is scuppered by a few cachers placing posts to stick to there rights of what is placed in a cache. Even after it was posted that Tim was in negotiations with Forest Enterprises some still insisted on the right. Now, we as a self-controlling hobby/sport/pastime may find we have a blanket no caches on forestry land. This has not been decided but a decision has already been made about guidelines for caches on their land. There will be no guidelines, basically meaning they will not condone caches on there land. The main point is food and alcohol in caches, basically none.. also being sensitive to wild life, environment, habitat etc. So if they put an area out of bounds for a while we accept that and temp archive caches within that area. This by the way is now all academic, the hard work, money and time spent on this by Tim has been wasted by a few who can not see that there are times to stand and times to conform. They will now, not negotiate. They can see that we can not police ourselves so therefore are doing it for us. This means that a possible 1,000000 hectares of land could be out of bounds. If the same is followed by English Nature then that is well over another 60+ thousand hectares of Nature reserves we will have lost. One case where democracy rules and screws it up. Moss de Boss...
