I do, especially when they take you to unique and unusual places where a physical container could not be placed. yes

I have been to some interesting ones in big cities with spectacular buildings or skyline or even at the top of mountain in a glass cage like this one GC7B7T2 - it is great fun!

Yes, I do like them. I like them because they are few and far between, and for that reason they are usually worth finding. Im hoping to find more in the near future (including Australia's first which wouldn't exist anymore if it couldnt be virtual), but that being said im happy for them to stay as rare as they are, I think if they became more common they wouldnt have the same appeal.

Yes, I do enjoy virtual caches. In fact, I found my first one just yesterday! There consent is pretty similar to earth caches though (Not neccaserly a bad thing).

I like the old ones however mostly before the new came around - when it was an old and rare type.

The new batch not so much as most are quite uninteresting and placed where a physical cache could have been instead - and for most of those new ones I've found there is a physical cache at the same spot or close by.

It also seems like most of the new virtual COs have placed them just because they can and haven't put much thought into them.

I do log them when I have the chance though and will be logging at least another 3 or 4 this upcoming weekend.

Yes, we like them a lot, when they are managed properly. If a CO is no longer going to be active, the Virtuall cache should be archived or adopted. As others have said, they are a different twist on the basic game. So are earthcaches, or letterboxes, or mystery(puzzle) caches. But that is what makes it fun. We love this activity for what it brings to our lives. Getting outdoors for some exercise, meeting new frinds, taking us to places that we would never of thought of going to. A well done virtual will take you to places where a traditional is not acceptable. They can teach us some history, or show us interesting tourist locations.
