Well I would have to say that is Ka-Ka as we received a single email to which I personally responded within a matter of hours. I responded and explained that first, he would need to provide the name and information of the cache in question so that I could look into the matter. You see just like any other site (including GC.com) we do not transfer ownership just because someone says, hey that is my cache now. Especially when they did not even provide the name of the cache in question.
Now, "Paddy's" response to my request started "Please look in to it all you like. But I am the cache owner", so it was obvious he had his shorts all in a bunch !! However I did as I said I would and am looking into it. We do not simply turn over caches without going through certain procedures and his choice is to be patient. Seems to me he is disgruntled with the wrong folks here. We are not the ones who adopted out the cache without or did not check for other listings for over a year! Perhaps when adopting caches it would be a good idea to ask the cache owner if it is listed on any other sites and if so, remind them to also notify the admin of the other sites as well. Contrary to what some may think, GC.com is not the only game in town.
Perhaps Paddy would feel differently if some one contacted us falsely stating they had adopted one of his caches and we simply switched owners without confirming it with him. Yes, we've had attempts to 'hijack' cache listings this way in the past.
