I heard about this years ago and have always been irritated by the silly use of the word confluence. In a true confluence, eg. of rivers, two streams come together to become one. But a "confluence" that these guys hunt for is not a confluence (coming together of two streams) at all, but a CROSSING (where a line of latitude crosses a line of longitude) - a completely different beast.
