Before Social Media - name and shame, how it was done

Going through my photo archives; I found this photo I took in 2005. Pinned to the notice board at Lower Sabie.

Just a pit that some people are so thick skinned that they consider it an achievement if their names (or details) are published.

Rooies it is a pity that some visitors think that breaking the rules and regulations of the Kruger National Park are an achievement :evil: :sniper:

:hmz: In the past before social media you had to write a very long Dear Sir letter to the Park Warden stating your complaint as there were no internet, whatsapp, facebook etc. etc :doh: I wonder how many months would have past before the letter reached the red post box in Skukuza :hmz:

This sort of misbehaviour has always been going on :sniper:

With social media, it becomes public knowledge instantly. Millions of people know of the misdemeanour within seconds. No where to hide anymore.

recently I have been quite critical of using social media to track sightings.
But it does have advantages.
