4x4van Posted May 27, 2005 Share Posted May 27, 2005 I have no doubt that I will be blasted by some for the following, but I guess I'm entitled to my opinion, as are others. So here's mine: As has already been stated, there are many, many ways to contribute to this sport/hobby/obsession/disease . Paying $3 a month is only one of them. The only somewhat legitimate reason for an MOC in my opinion is if there is a local maggot/pirate problem. All the other reasons so often stated for them are better addressed in other ways, without excluding a huge percentage of cachers that contribute greatly to the sport in numerous other ways. In my area, MOCs have started popping up recently, and there really has never been much of a cache maggot/pirate problem in this area (that I know of, anyway). Does this make me want to become a PM? No, in fact it does just the opposite. The extra features (PQs and the like) would be nice, but untill MOCs are banned, I probably will continue to put off joining up. I'll contribute in other, more tangible ways that doesn't judge people based on something that has nothing to do with the sport. I've asked the following question a number of times (when the issue of MOCs comes up), but have yet to get a single answer for some reason : I'd like to ask those of you who are placing MOCs for any reason other than cache maggots/pirates... Since you have deemed non-PM cachers not worthy of seeking your caches, are you also willing to put your money where your mouth is and not seek caches placed by non-PM cachers? What about the ones you've already found that were placed by us lowly non-PMs? Will you delete them from your "found" list? If not, then placing MOCs seems to be the ultimate in hypocrisy.
