To puzzle cache owners just handed me answers to their puzzles. Is this an attempt to alleviate their stress? I, being honest, am still going to solve them or wait like I'm supposed to. I find this behavior by them very weird. I don't like it. I know some cachers wouldn't think twice and just go for them. Thanks for the solves but I just wanted hints.

Not quite sure why you chose to put this in the public forum but I guess people will put 2 and 2 together so let me answer this for you.

Over the past few weeks, you have made repeated complaints in this forum about our "unsolvable" puzzles. You have complained about the hints on our cache page. You have complained about the help we provided.

Yet, despite these complaints, we continued to get multiple emails from you asking for help on our puzzles. Each request for help that we answered led to more requests for help, to the point of walking you through puzzles to the solution. So it was really just easier to send you all the answers ahead of time rather than take a lot of time over several days to end up at the same result.

So, as I explained to you in the email, I sent you all the answers to all our puzzles to alleviate your stress about solving puzzles that were causing you such personal frustration. I could point out that you didn't have to read the answers if that wasn't what you wanted.

Apparently this doesn't make you happy either, so I'm really not sure what I can provide from here.

I'm guessing from here the usual application of thread lock by the webmaster will be in order, which would make 3 in a week for me. Maybe that could be a new stat like FTPs? Razz

Actually I wasn't complaining about them. I was complaining about the accusations of there being a database in which I hand out the answers like candy.

All of these were directed at our puzzles in recent threads:

Have you ever considered some us can't simply go because of other consideration(like disability or limited funds for trapsing around Green Bay?) or consider, maybe we have tried to solving the puzzle in question and through dumb luck more than your description or "hint"(one that only makes sense after we solve it.

Some puzzles are unsolvable, by my standards. Example, your time one.

I personally am trying to solve your movie night one and I have most of the answers but apparently not according to your Geochecker.

I have noticed that where the object in question is supposed to be doesn't jibe with the rest of the puzzle.

My friend is almost 7feet tall and long car rides cramp his legs so he can't walk far distance after the ride.


I could post even more but frankly I've spent far too much time on this already that I could be spending with my family. So I am done responding. You have the answers you seek, how you choose to use them or not is up to you. Enjoy how you choose to play the game.

Obviously the HardinFam has not noticed that there are other caches available in Wisconsin to look for.

You seem to have more time on your hands than I do. Right now, I have a rambunctious toddler who isn't tired.

You really do not understand integrity and privacy, do you hardinfam?

I am trying to understand why you would care to post your private issues on this public forum. I was taught that it's best to take care of your business privately and work things out as gentleman instead of posting all dirty laundry to try an polarize the membership. This is a bad choice. Personal issues should be taking care of one on one and not in the public forum. What do you wish to accomplish with this post?

You are correct WA. This thread was started as an attempt to elicit an emotional response from another WGA member. Should have been locked after the first post.
This is getting old, guys.
