    haha, that might be what the advertisers want, but no. (Good thing we don't have advertisers huh?)

    Maybe I am just lazy or the fact that I never even considered that someone would log illegitimately.

    I think N1WTQ has not logged more caches that he has found then ones which he has logged (online). LOL

    Unfortunately it is true. Humans have a tendency to compete whenever given the chance. And just as you see with sports or any other competition, there is a percentage that feel they have to change the rules to be on top. Of course with geocaching, which has no rules concerning competition, these few will just say they are playing their own way.

    I'd much rather see the game stay as a fun activity and keep the competition out of it.

    (In my best Austrian voice) . . . Yah . . . that's why I am taking the steroids . . . it helps me cache better.

    When I first started out I logged into the logbook as "momofals" which I wanted to be my trail name. I had already joined geocaching.com but didn't understand the difference because I hadn't loged on the computer yet. Of the 12 I did before logging only 3 got removed and all by the same owner. No email to me. Just removal.

    I don't know if I'm going to do the caches again. I don't care about the numbers but I am a little sad that the owner would remove me off three caches with out saying something. I could have explained. Be new to the sport I didn't figure it out till months later when I was going into that area again and the caches I knew I had done came up without smiley faces.

    the cache in question has been archived does this allow you to place your cache now? i would pm maine publisher and find out. it would be nice to see a cache back at this place.
