Like most others I’m in this for the fun. I get no fun at all hunting for the “needle in a haystack” hides. When I get to GZ and find a huge pile of rocks (or open field of grass, or cedar hedge, etc) I’m usually the first one to look at the hint. If the hint doesn’t provide specifics, I’ll spend minimal time searching. If the cache hider lacks the creativity to make a quality hide, I’ll put the same effort into my search. If I do happen to stumble upon the cache it’s still not a “fun” find for me…rather, it’ll either be remembered for it’s frustration or “lameness” or, it’ll not be remembered at all. Either way, it’s not something I’d ever want any of my own caches to be looked upon.
These kinds of caches have always been my number one reason for Groundspeak to add a cache rating system. Their new addition of the “Favourite” feature doesn’t begin to approach what is really needed. Yeah, it’s great to be able to list a dozen or so caches as your all-time favourites, but it doesn’t let you rate the cache properly.

~TT~

I’d just rather find more nice caches than spend time one that isn’t a lot of fun.
