    I am not the admin of that web site. So I can not speak for them. I personally do not know the admin as I stated in the welcome forum on the Maine geocachers web site. I have dedicated myself to helping them as much as I can. From chatting with the admin they have told me that this site is a no nonsense site. There will be no profanity and insults tolerated as has been done on the other two Maine web sites in the past. They were pretty straight forward about that when making that statement to me. I think that was their intent when they started the web site from what I have understood in chatting with them. I can honestly say that I agree with that. I will probably get flamed here for posting this but I am not going to get involved in any back and forth arguing about it. I am just answering what I think I know or understand from chatting with them.

    They also told me they will not establish an organization because geocaching is a free hobby/sport and they truly feel there is no need for an organization here in Maine. I will not go into that you; will have to take that up with them. This is just what I was told and I do honestly agree.

    Sorry to correct you, but profanity and insults have NEVER been TOLERATED on this web site.

    Perhaps your definition of "tolerated" may differ, but because something happenes does not mean it's "tolerated".

    And you keep using the words "they" and "them". Isn't "admin" just one person (him/her), as stated in your welcome on the site? And it seems strange that you would make such an effort on a site without knowing who was behind it. Very unusual.

    I also find this kinda odd and unusual. Mr. Shadow, if I may ask.......why have you chosen our site to make your anouncement and nothing has been mentioned over on the MGA forums? It sounds as if you've had problems with both these other sites but have only chosen one to make your statement. Care to enlighten us?
    What if the Hokey Pokey is what its all about?
    Have Fun & Be Safe!

    Wow, using a third party service to protect the identity of the domain registrar (see here: http://www.domainsbyproxy.com/LegalAgreement.aspx). I guess it REALLY IS run by the "Shadow"! One wonders why this level of secrecy is necessary for a simple geocaching website?

    I saw that as well. I had to resort to comparing IP addresses in order to widdle my list down to a couple of possibilities.

    I'll state this again, I am not aware that anyone from the MGA is involved with this. Why here and not there I do not know.

    My advice would be to just ignore it and let it be. No responses to the post will send a big big message.

    OK sooooo, tell us a bit about you and your numbers and your experiance, its hard for any of us to by into such nonsense when there is notheing to back it up. And it sounds wierd that you would come here to advertise when all of us had to chance to leave this web site before and chose to stay.

    Good luck with your crusade.
