It would awesome if before you could post in the Lost and Found section you had to go through a little Q&A.

Did you lose the gear? Or did you leave it when bailing?
Yes or No
Where you involved in a rescue of an injured climber?
Yes or No
Did you drive back to the cliff before dawn the next day to retrieve said gear?
Yes or No
Are you seriously posting about a lost rope that you got stuck?
etc
