Anybody know this guy ?     I did his caches simply because they are very close to my workplace but they are junk mostly.  Some of the containers have been upgraded and moved but not the cache page so I mentionned it in my found logs.  Now I am receiving stupid messages from this guy from geocaching.com.

Don't know him, but I received an e-mail from him when he assumed (incorrectly) that I had his funeral home cache archived.   The buzz is that he has been replacing his containers with ones that are more appropriate, yet still making rookie mistakes of moving the containers to new locations without updating coordinates / cache pages.  Until this new cacher introduces himself better to the community, finds at least one geocache, and maybe asks for some help, any new caches of his are on my ignore list.

Judging by the fact that it is Saturday morning, and not a soul has attempted to FTF on his new cache published Thursday, tells me that other people may be of the same opinion.

Now that's just plain childish and stupid.  Thought about writting a nasty found it log for DEADWOOD just to see if I would have gotten the same response.   >:(  I decided it would just have been a waste of time;  so I just wrote '' Found it...'nuf said''  :P

He put in his description for ''Log in a log'' that he didn't want to receive any hostile logs...  Looks like this CO can't stand any sort of constructive critisism. :-\ :-\

Went looking for his newest cache ''Gavin Rossdale'' but gave up after 2 minutes of searching.  I didn't feel comfortable looking around the bushes with all the cars stopping at the intersection; not to mention all the people waiting for the bus at the nearby bus stop.  All of which were giving me the evil eye!!!  :-[

how do I report to geocaching.com.

It seems the user has decided to delete every find I have made on his caches....

this is not right and even if they are bad caches I did find them and log them.....

I would accept it and move on. I am considering deleting my find just so I don't have my name associated with his caches.

I deleted my log.  after all it's not about the numbers!  I have to learn to show support to cachers that respect the sport.  Sending rude or insulting emails to people I think are nice is just unacceptable.  I was going to email him, to let him know why I deleted my log but figure my comments would probably be rude and possibly defensive and it's just not worth it.

Just be careful which Deadwood gets your nasty log! I don't want his poor cache associated with my quality hide!   ;D ;D

Report him to abuse@geocaching.com and cite your case. They will take care of it and reinstated and lock your logs. You found them; you deserve the finds.
