|I got an e-mail recently from a mother of three kids under 12 years old who visited one of my caches with the whole family, and found a copy of Playboy opened to the centerfold that someone had placed in the cache. Fortunately an adult opened the cache first and concealed the magazine, so the kids didn't get a quick lesson in anatomy, but mom was still a bit upset. |
Probably many cachers would appreciate that sort of "prize" in a cache, but we should keep in mind that this is a very family-oriented activity and pick our swap items appropriately.
This is going to be a problem.
When you hide a cache, you then have no control over what other people put into it. Unless you can get to it every day, that is.
In the modern world, would you as the hider be held resposible for what other people put into it? I can see some legal person, on the hunt for a fee, who might say that you are!
A troll got into another site, a bit obvious from the number of posts made (which was 1) but easily identified as a troll looking for outraged responses, but who's to say that some sad individual(s) will not want to put something that they hope causes offence to the next cache finder?
The problem then will be that landowners might not want to give permission, in case someone puts something that is illegal or imoral into the cache.
