Yes!!! Finally, someone who understands. This isn't a game of "I didn't get mine back so screw everyone else". You're either part of the solution or part of the problem. You're not teaching anyone a lesson by being a jerk. And theft is theft. Replace the word disc with wallet in this thread and watch how bent out of shape people would get with the same treatment.
There is no real reason for not trying to get someone their disc back if their name is on the disc. Anyone who doesn't at least try is pretty much lazy, making excuses, and a thief. They are also lucky that disc golfers are a pretty passive, fun loving bunch. I know it wouldn't surprise me to see some of these thieves get hurt by some less than patient people who want what is legally theirs back. I would never take that route, but consider the times we live in. It's a pretty ballsy move to refuse to give someone their property back in this day and age.
