mufasa1023 Posted October 21, 2003 Share Posted October 21, 2003 The guidelines have stated that: "Solicitations are also off-limits. For example, caches perceived to be posted for religious, political, or social agendas will not be listed. Geocaching is supposed to be a light, fun activity, not a platform for an agenda." The guideline does not say anything about what is left in caches however. I have noticed that religious literature often gets left in the caches that I visit. As a matter of fact the last cache I visited had a medallion in it that said something to the effect of "without god you would not have been able to find this cache" (My first thought of course was that I had used the man-made satelites to find it.) The point being though is that this person had purposely made up these medallions for geocaching itself. What if anything would be the correct action (if any) upon finding religious, political, social or commercial objects/literature within a cache? Assume that this is something that you dont agree with (i.e. a democrat finding GOP literature at a cache etc.) And also what should be deemed as soliciting? Finding the koran in a cache could be construed in many ways... Quote Link to comment
