This thread is 5 years old, was necro'ed by someone with 4 posts to actually say that someone 5 years ago left a jerky attitudinal comment.
Thank god we're all not like this when we see each other out in the real world.

If a disc is that important, then don't throw it. You lose 0% of the discs you don't throw.
The only thing these types of threads are good for is for revealing the character of DGCR posters.

Nobody expects a non-disc golfer to try and return discs. Why should they? However, disc golfers should know better. Any serious disc golfer who advocates for keeping a known lost disc is a douchebag. Period.

Yet the necro bump got more action than the OP did...

Thank you for proving my point. The idea that a disc needs to be returned, no matter the means. You text/call and the person doesn’t immediately respond, so you keep it. Then what,? It’s still in your douchey hands.

There’s a clear divide between the effort one puts forth in returning a disc, which is usually little to none, and the amount of effort some people expect others to make in returning a disc, which for some people seems to be no expense spared.

It’s the idea that we judge ourselves by intentions and others by actions. None of your contrarian beliefs have disproved that otherwise.

You know better and choose to be a dick. That's on you. No need to try and justify it.


Nobody expects a Herculean effort. Most folks don't really want a Platebee thread taunt either.

Wax pedestrian all you want, your words can't cover your intentions.

Craig found a DGCR diamond badge on the course and never called the number on the back.

When the first Rec Player cried for the first time, its cry broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went lurking about, and that was the beginning of disc thieves.

I don’t fault your ignorance. I also don’t care one bit if someone calls back about a disc or not. Yes. It’s a good thing to do. Now that we’re in agreement on that issue, less move on..

Why get bent out of shape when someone doesn’t return a disc? I don’t know how many times I’ve played with a new/casual player who had no idea to call the number on a disc when they found one. It doesn’t seem to be a consensus that calling is expected.
