    How did we affect their website? Did anyone here post adverse comments to their site or were they relying solely on people from geocachingmaine.org to visit their site?
    Seems that if there was a negative response from here, that shouldn't compromise a well set up site somewhere else. If comments from one thread here made another site shut down, it didn't have the framework to stand on it's own from the beginning. (IMHO)

    I think the only reason that they posted the original thread in here was just to see if they could stir things up and maybe get a few people interested in visiting their site. I think it worked but hopefully it was just for that short span and I know where my roots are.

    Just smile it won't crack your face

    I don't think a legitimate invitation to another Geocaching-related website is any problem at all. However, red flags go up when the invitation is done "mysteriously", by an unknown entity who claims to have nothing to do with the site, but is listed as a forum "admin" on the site.

    I dare say that someone who openly introduces themselves and invites us to check out another site would enjoy a much more positive reception. Just my .02.

    I would find it hard to believe that someone would go through the time, effort and expense to put up another geocaching site for Maine and then promptly shut it down.

    I would dare suggest that the right person was probably 'caught' VIA this site? You may not have gotten the absolute confirmation that you were seeking but I would hazzard a guess that the talk of IP addresses might have been enough to spook them?

    The MGA site isn't able to track IP addresses anymore so they would have been a lot safer to post their log on our site. Why they didn't is beyond us?

    We would have been interested in hearing their opinion if they posted it on the MGA; just because we wouldn't neccessarily 'like' it wouldn't have meant that we wouldn't have valued it...

    My two cents, which is only worth about half that. : )

    And the winner of the thread (drumroll, please)... LaughingTerry!

    Good to see that someone else "gets" it - I've met a few of you now, and you all seem really nice in person, but seriously, lose the politics! Some folks seem to take this waaaaaay too seriously.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again - If the social aspect of caching starts annoying you more than you enjoy the "caching" aspect, give the former up for a while.
