Did a run with Zeet yesterday where we hacked frog portals in three cemeteries and then smashed frog portals in Pipal Park as well as other portals local to the park all while setting up fields.  It was about 100K woth of AP and a metric ton of fun.  You are so right, Snauz, smashing portals is a blast. Especially when you are working with someone to do it.

Grats!  make sure to feed it daily and monitor constantly. My first lasted 32 days before the frogs peed on it. ;)

I can't believe how many grey unclaimed I portals I have found. They are mine now. Why do people just leave one resonator? What is the tactic? Are they getting more portals with less resonators?   But they are not usable are they?

The first resonator you put on a Portal is worth 625AP.  Plus it claims the portal as yours.  I have notice some players just run around or drive by claiming of portals just to get the 625AP and their name. Then the move on.  Especially if all they want is to get the credit toward unique portal captures to get there next badge and / or level (past level 8).

As J0lly said they are just getting the unique capture on that portal, both for AP and for the medal.  You are right that the portal is not usable for linking without all resonators fully loaded on the portal.  See my other post for more info on how to level faster.
