THAT'S what I can do with these irritating snow days! I will just sit right down here and log 10,000 virtuals that are not being watched anymore and I'll be the top finder in the state! No wait, I'll do 35,000 and then I'll be the number one in the world!
Just kidding, of course, but that does illustrate a point. Special situations where someone logs their own for event temps, or in a special circumstance such as the one the The Griswolds explained are one thing, but to routinely bump your numbers by doing a drive by, or when it should be a maintenence log on your own cache, I think is wrong. If anyone doesn't think that there is some amount of FRIENDLY competition among cachers for the numbers, you are lying to yourslef. I am a competetive person, and so are many other cachers that I know, whether they will admit it or not. So to bump those numbers falsely would be cheating in that regard.
As for event temps, I can see TNT's point, but with the competitive standpoint now being admitted to, I'll quit when every body else does.
There is my two cents worth if anyone cares. Happy snow day everyone!
Guess what?! I got a fever, and the only prescription...is more cowbell!!
