I would really love to know how this would work out in real life..

"Hello, police? Someone's asking me why i didnt sign a notepad inside a container, out in Namadgi! Hello? Where did you go? Did you hang up on me? Oh man"

I'm just waiting for time to pass so the two events aren't connected

My 2c:
His log isn't a "TFTC" which I've noted in logs on other caches of yours, and at least provides some detail of his find, so why delete his log and not the "TFTC" logs too, as they didn't write about their experience?
- although it is pretty rude of them to reply the way they did when you politely pointed out the normal thing is to write in the log book.
Cheers 8)

Just because you dont like what someone wrote (or did not write) in a online log does not give you the right to delete it under the GC guidelines however under the GC guidelines you can delete the log for not signing the logbook.

Refusal to Sign Cache Log Book

Post by pjmpjm » 04 February 12 1:50 pm

I continue to think that this is an example of a confused and anti-social geocaching newbie.

As a once-off, I'd be inclined to forget about it.

If he/she continued to refuse to (physically) sign log books, then it would be a different matter.

A case study in human psychology . . . :-k

I too got the same did not sign log from the same person Noikmeister & Agent Basil did.
I too got the *^&*%&*%^&* reply, and subsequent &*&*% (& police) reply.

But, in amongst the *^&*^^ and *(*(^& he said something about the cache vicinity that tweaked my memory. Firstly, the cache is a difficult Namadgi cache, well, an hours walk up a steep fire trail followed by a 5 mins bush bash rock navigate.
He mentioned things about the vicinity (& nicknames) that were there in 2003 or thereabouts, and these things featured in the previous cache up there by ,......, wait for it ........., Panic!. (that TankEngine may have remembered too).
That cache was archived in 2006, and those things up there long forgotten. (it was archived before this newish person came on the scene in 2009)

Then all of a sudden, up pops these things from the ACT's "interesting"" past.

So, I asked how he knew about this way back in 2003, and if he knew Panic!. Silence! Well, I suppose that's better than *^*&^*(^896896(*^*(^*(^anyday.

I didn't ask if he WAS Panic!, just if he knew.....

Still haven't deleted his log,.... still thinking .....

YES. I haven't mentioned specifics or details, but his &&%*%&* response to me included terms, words, mentions of very very specific long gone things that only Panic! would know., AND, those same terms were in the cache listing by him.

That's odd, I was only mentioning him today in reference to something else....

He did have a penchant for not signing logs. [-o<
