Not heard of these sad people before >:(

They seem to think we are littering the countryside and should be fined 1000 :o ???

See one they have recently attacked Thornton View

Oooo - this has made me angry  >:(

I'm getting in contact with them, maybe (if I'm brave enough  ;)) ! Also going to refer it to PodCacher to aware people about it - like they often do.

Ah, THAT'S why I made all my caches premium - stops stupid lifeless people like them upsetting millions of people around the planet  :D

Don't want to contact them, but have let Podcacher know to aware people.

They are around the East Midlands.
A lot of the emcache cachers have had problems.

Groep seem to have been quite for a little while.

Pinned thread in the UK side of the GS forums.

Best NOT to have any contact with them. It will only encourage them.
I have a Geocaching problem...
Work gets in the way!

Hi guys,

You know their acronym is GROPE don't you that has been a great deal of laughter of several forums about this fact

Thanks
