The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So heres the story...

So at my local course there is a local that plays everyday and that adds on to the fact that he lives right across the street from the course. Since he lives right there he is always finding discs. The worse part is, is that he doesnt bother calling people to return discs. Instead he usually trades them to his roommates or sells them. Since I know that he has found some of my discs and I have confronted him multiple times, I know how pissed off I and many others get when we dont get discs back that are very important to us. So since he doesnt give discs back I figured I would take the liberty of personally getting peoples discs back and then calling the rightful owner... Is this wrong? Im not trying to be an asshole I just feel that people spend hard earned money on discs and deserve to have there discs back.

All responses welcome

Kinda depends on how you plan to get them back..
don't bother. disc golf karma will deal with him...its hard, but be the bigger man and let it go...he will get his in the end...
well to mac i usually ask "Hey is that a ____? You mind if I through it?" and then he usually forgets and then i just take it, call the rightful owner, and all is well. and then usaully the owner is super stoked on getting there disc back
not wrong just rude i must admit i keep discs that haven names but only after repetively calling the person most of the time its a changed number out of state area code etc. but i will always call so thats being nice this guy sound rude to me
no doubt i do the same thing blake... and yes this guy is just a stupid pothead who doesnt care about anyones property
Also the funny thing is, is that he barely knows how to play
What can you do? As long as you do the right thing, that's all that matters. IMO, I see more and more people who just don't care about anybody but themselves. It's to bad...
Don't go grabbing anything that's in his possession - especially discs that were never yours - before you get legal advice.
its only wrong if it goes against your local lost and found laws..immoral...yes
this has been talked about many many times. my thoughts, if you walked away from it, you then gave up looking for it. as aggravating as it is, im sure, i'd swallow the pill. the only time i get pissed, is if it was taken from my possession or someone scooped it up before i could get to it. i mean, you wrote it off, not expecting it back. the thing that ticks you off is that he doesn't have the moral fortitude to do what you and i would. i mean, if he smokes dope, morals are probably not high on his list already.
Now, I'm definitely one to return another persons property if I can, and I often go out of my way to do so, but beware of imposing your own morals on others. I mean, smoking pot does not make this guy the devil incarnate. Quite honestly, I believe that prohibition is inhumane and thus immoral, but I'm not calling J.D. immoral for seemingly supporting it. While this is quite an aside from our discussion about returning discs, I think its important that we keep our heads on straight and not turn this into a moral crusade.

As far as returning discs goes I'm with most everyone else here that this mystery man may be making a legal, but socially irresponsible decision. And I too believe that karma will pay him back in the end...
It's a city park free of paying to play and there is no clubhouse or anything
