Look guys, there's nothing wrong with a dose of reality from time to time. DD makes a fair observation whether you like it or not. There is also a little legal diddy known as an "attractive nuisance".

Yeah but create a DD website that isn't pro F

We come on CC to get info and ideas for the chase. The idea that it goes south for one person and to make a self goal to disrupt everyone else's fun drives me nuts but I'm not sane anyways

Searchers have attempted many of the reasonable and less dangerous solves since 2010 and have nothing to dissuade them from doing really stupid stuff. As this chase continues without anything additional from Fenn more searchers will push the limits of reason. And Fenn will need to continue to deal with the negative press.

Fenn has said he is done giving out additional info and that is his choice. As the body count continues to pile up the negative press will only get worse. It is a reasonable conclusion to believe the chest has not been found because the path is harder than the solves that have already been attempted and searchers will push those limits.

Some feel 100% of the responsibility is on the searcher. That was fine and dandy until Randy's death. As more deaths occur the fanatics who think Fenn can do no wrong will be drowned out by the public and the press as they become more involved. And whether the fanatics like it or not this hunt will take on a whole new and undesirable life of its own.

We are already seeing hints that the families of the 3 publicized deaths are forming an alliance to work against Fenn. That is not good.

Had the community come together with a reasonable position on these deaths beginning with Randy, this turn of events may not have happened. I'm sure Fenn pays attention to the blogs and forums and takes the general consensus into consideration. Had Fenn responded to these deaths differently and forwarded the Chase in some way this may not be happening.

I am expecting a handful of you fanatics to respond here to praise Fenn and criticize the searchers who have died. Realize this fanaticism is part of the problem and why the chase is headed the direction it is. You could be influential in a positive change and the direction but should things remain the same I am afraid you will not like the eventual outcome that you had the ability to influence.

Bet go sulk at hanging lake

Guys thanks to those of you who are proving my point Fenn must be so proud. You never fail to show your true colors and I appreciate that. As the chase continues with you at the helm as ambassadors, this will head in the direction you claim you do not want it to. Congratulations are in order.

Bet we all get that you don't like the way ff is running his chase. That being the case why don't you start your own and do it differently? Spare us all your bloviating.

Debbie has been active for a short time 7/21
I take it she/he is a failed searcher and has a one track goal to disrupt it.
Good luck Debbie

Remind me again why commenters shouldn't be allowed to post opposing viewpoints on CC?

I keep forgetting.

Debbie appears to be 'Bet' from another site.
"Debbie Downer, is a slang phrase which refers to someone who frequently adds bad news and negative feelings to a gathering, thus bringing down the mood of everyone around them."
Thank you for your time, Bet.

RE: Sadly, more will die
Pretty sure Debbie isn't Bet. Just shares a similar viewpoint. Not one I support in particular.

But let's all heckle her until she never posts again.

Because we don't want to allow diversity of opinion on CC. That would set a negative precedence.
