Hmm...
« on: June 13, 2013, 09:55:52 pm »
THIS

Note log from the CO of a cache I found yesterday. I was going to send them a message, but I am exhausted this night and my words probably would not come out so nicely. It looks they are new. I'll message tomorrow unless anyone else wants to advise them before.

Dodgy co-ords, no description, surprised there was even a container to find!

NM, NA.

How much damage can be done by cachers searching a larger area due to deliberately  incorrect coordinates!

oh dear, some people have funny ideas about caching ::)

Definitely needs reporting i.e. flagging to the reviewers.

Thank you for posting the note tarmacjohn. I have also sent them an email this morning, as I noticed something else that needs an edit, the parking waypoint is the same as the cache coords which is impossible to be for that location.

And to make it worse, today's finders have been muffled. ?????

They have changed their log now, it said 'muffled' earlier on

Muggled... The F and G are next to each other, fat fingered, or they are logging by phone and it's 'auto-corrected' as spell checks don't have 'Muggled' in their dictionary!

They didn't answer my mail, they haven't amended the cache coords, and haven't changed the parking coords. Posted a NM.

Should have gone for a NA, they have had more than enough warning ;)
