Well if they were going to change it to the latter idea of the cache owner being able to delete basic member's logs, and somewhere in the Premium (parent's) log it is explained that the kids (non-premium) log was a find with them I don't really see an issue.

Face it it is a company that exists to make a profit, so if they think that this will generate more premium memberships then it is a legitimate avenue for them to consider. If you aren't paying at the table chances are they aren't going to listen to you on the issue too seriously (which let's face it their first counter argument is going to be the small percentage of caches that are PMO in the first place) And if they were to get enough feedback about a kid's free account not being able to log the same cache's they found as mom and dad I am guessing they would figure out an "honorary PMO" account system, or perhaps add a second account to the "primary" account at a steep discount... who knows. Point being those who pay aren't going to notice a change, those who don't well it might be one more argument to pay up. And yes there are a thousand arguments I don't need to hear about paying vs. not paying.
