I've done what I can to support this site in many ways. I left the site for quite some time, for various reasons.

It's disheartening to know that people can google and have access to our posts. It's also sad to see such lack of financial support on this site and GC.com . Meanwhile people love to use the resources for free, and use them quite heavily at times.

I just joined another group I found to be useful. You can support them w/a mere $5 donation! I think we should have that option. People often value something more.....when they invest in it.

That group also requires members to Prove that they're not a bot...and an actual person that's interested in geocaching.

So...what do you think? Should we protect our valuable resources? It might take a bit more work to set it up initially.... but save a ton in the long run.
