Geo-snatching is the act of finding loopholes instead of geocaches.
- armchair geocaching;
- hacking your smartphone's location so you can log Adventure Labs or solve Whereigo cartridges without visiting the location;
- logging an FTF on a friend's cache that you helped place;
- finding your own caches by adopting it to a sock puppet account (aka rule 52612);
- other general tomfoolery.
