[CCGC] Re: Geomuggle Anti-cache Violence
- Hi Monty,
Good comments. The way we address this sort of problem in other
areas is two-fold. One, we ensure that we (communicators, hams,
contesters, hikers, etc) know what's up. Two, we initially ignore
the "perps." When they don't get a response, they are unsure if they
have an effect and quickly tire of their misbehavior.
I live in California and don't choose to see bad trends. I do work
as a DSW, the Emergency Coordinator for Seaside, and as a registered
emergency communicator, and have significant access to crime stats.
California is at 10th in violent crime, in the middle of reported
crime against property, and is experiencing a rise in high-tech and
low dollar value crime. This includes unreported crimes such as what
we may be seeing with the present topic.
I don't have time to fret about some problem no one cares about, and
I certainly don't want to create stress. For me, geocaching is a fun
hobby. I have no interest in turning it into a drama or conflict.
So, I'll head back to school and once in a while out to find a cache
Thanks for your thoughts and have fun on the geocaching trail.
Take good care,
