Actually, I've hidden several. They just aren't listed yet.

No Glenn, on that score I think you are wrong, and that it exactly why I

No, look again. I have taken it upon myself to make sure that
irresponsible admins don't allow poorly placed and IILEGAL (not to mention
unmaintained) caches to stay in places when they are creating a public
nuisance. That will hurt the entire GC sport as a whole, regardless of
how good it may make the placer and admin feel.

Well thank you Glenn. ;-)

I will when I pull them up, since your cache needs to have copies of the
permissions in the cache.

If they are not documented on the web page, and there is no mention in the
cache, yes, I will.

Grow up Glenn. You know full well that this has nothing to do with
"liking a cache". This has to do with responsibility - and if nobody is
going to take it, then it is incumbent upon all of us to excersize our
best judgement to try and rectify the situation. You are the one that
finally made the decision for me - but you already know that. It's the
knowledge that you simply do not care about anything but keeping a fun
cache (this *was* a fun cache) at whatever cost that makes me seriously
question your judgement.

No, I did not. As you well know, the cache owner has been unreachable
since last year. So maybe, armed with that knowledge, and also armed with
the knowledge that at least one of these two caches was a potential safety
hazard to the cachers themselves (crushed PVC pipe - edges - get it?),
maybe you, our Geocaching Admin And All Around Good Guy would have taken
some action on this?

Oops to you too.
