    Thank You for letting me know, but I never claimed he was in violation of any of the rules. I am just trying to keep this thread, which I started, completely civil, and simply asked him to please remove that potential inflammatory/offensive reference. Members with opposing views of mine and DeepseekersADS, will take offense.

    I'm sure that we will hear from those members he generally referenced, but I hope that others will please keep this thread completely civil, and read all the posts with open minds, as I am trying to understand the differing views on this topic, which is why I started it to begin with.

    The police have more important things to do than run a lost and found.

    I've made at least 150 returns of various sorts and will continue to try to do more. It's just my personal desire and experience that compels me to do so. When you witness someone turn into a blubbering basket case (with joy) when you've returned a lost family heirloom or wedding ring, you'll know why I, and others do it. Have I run across people that have shown absolutely no appreciation for my efforts? Sure, but, the others mentioned above more than make up for the classless boobs you may encounter. I have found well over 1000 rings (and 100's of other personal items) that I can't find the owner. Returning one doesn't affect my lifestyle one bit, and improves my outlook and karma.

    Yup, they have a lost and found (at least in our city). It's called a file cabinet. After the prescribed period of time, they empty the file cabinet and the contents go to an auction. They don't actively try to find the owner.

    Dont turn it in, odds are it will not reach the owner. You said it is class ring, call the school and tell them your trying to return a lost class ring you found and give them the name in the ring..

    Several years ago i returned a 1977 class ring to the lady that lost it.Dont think she had it long as it wasnt worn anywhere all the edges were still sharp.. i didnt want a reward but was a little disappointed in her response.. Thats OK because for me it was a pleasure...

    As far as Im concerned you owe no one an explanation , If people are going to be classless and rude then the heck with um . Common courtesy is a fading value in this great country of ours .

    Thinking about this reminded me of something that happened to me about 3 yrs or so ago.. Theres a preetty safe to walk(not much traffic) road behind the golf course next to the community where i live, i had noticed this purse in the brush alongside of the road, on the way back i picked it up took it home and looked thru it. Wallet and drivers license there but of course it had been pilfered well. I called the lady to see how i could return it..
    Dont remember now what she said but ssoon a police car was in front if my place.. Anyway the officer got a little testy, i told him Hell im just trying to return this item and i don't need the 3rd degree about it. So sometimes good deeds can be a little trying.. But what the hell id do it again....
