|You can get away with cheating on traditional caches almost as easily, if you really want to. Most cache hiders don't match up signatures in the physical log with online logs. Caches get plundered. Physical logs get soaked and illegible. Logging a phony find online is easy. If a cheater doesn't overdo it, the chances of being caught are slim. So, why the obsession with trying to prevent cheating on virtuals? Curious.|
But I get the impression that, over in the other place, they are trying to become the referee of the 'sport' of geocaching.
The problems that they face, in the UK, are manyfold. Already some landowners have said 'No' to a set of rules that were proposed. All because a thread on GC in the UK area suggested that people might not necessarily agree with restrictions proposed.
Now, I admire the people who are trying to get blanket aproval from various landowners, but I do think the efforts are doomed to failure in some cases.
Also, this insistance on a 'demonstratable' visit fails when you can so easily fake it. Why you would want to fake a find is beyond me. I mean, what on earth do you gain?!
