Why does a cacher with a lot of hides in WI keep attacking the ethics of other cachers?

I'm newer in the hobby and I am shocked to see such attacks. I haven't posted on here because I was just sitting back but I thought I'd finally get feedback from the geocachers in Wi and your perspective.

I thought geocaching was a family friendly sport. I see a lot of family stuff but I also see a specific person attacking geocachers, blaming geocachers for stealing caches and travel bugs, and the posting of NON-family friendly photos. Rolling Eyes

I read in a log that "geocaching is big enough for the givers and takers, lovers and haters, and the non thankers...."

Kind of insulting and makes me wonder if I really should have my children, pre-teens, involved in this hobby if stuff like that is visible, especially things which are sexually suggestive. My kids don't need to see that, it surely doesn't reflect positive values.

I am not seeing what you are meaning by Non-family friendly photos or sexually suggestive. PM me if you want to declare which it is.

Many are aware of whom you are mentioning and many have already made their views known. we don't need to jump on that wagon again.

While I agree that non-family friendly stuff has no place in geocaching, I can't really comment on your specific case since I'm clueless about who, what, when, where, etc.

I noticed the log you are referring to, and I agree with your comments. The "spat" has been going on for several monthes and I choose to ignore these petty posts. Not sure about the photos you are mentioning.

If it gets out of hand, Groundspeak will be notified, and the parties will be processed through proper channels.

And on those wise words, this thread is closed.
