StationMaster, surely if the guidelines were being followed caches would not be where they shouldn’t and landowners would not be in a position to complain, and as Hobo says when a new cache is placed a box is ticked to say that you understand the rules. And surely it is better that a site like this makes people aware of the guidelines as Dave did in May.
On the cache in mention the owner has not logged in since April, so probably wouldn’t respond to a needs maintenance log. So should the cache be archived and left in place? or should the next responsible cacher to find it remove it and let the reviewer know the situation thus archiving it, my choice would be the latter.
