Well, here are my two cents...

First cent: I do _not_ like the dotcom appended to geocaching. Geocaching
has nothing to deal with any form of commerce. Please publish it as dotorg
if you want to state the international aspect of the movement.

Second cent: I think too that letterboxing is not that far from geocaching.
But why should this proximity allow for any take-over? Think that
letterboxing do _not_ require to posess a GPS receiver. Just provide a link
to the well established/maintained letterboxing web sites.

Please keep geocaching as it was born: simple, natural, passionate, not
commercial,... Trying to make money out of it will kill it!

Cheers.

Pierre
