I hoping you can do me a favor.

Right *after* you add a click/zoom square for the area just North of

Could you (and any others) possibly post your consent to the thread
being cross posted to the following groups?


I'd like anyone who's opposed to voice their concern as well.
I'm not in favor of the newsgroup if it will detract rather than
enhance the hobby.

I don't post to the Navicache forums, but I lurk there.
I've seen a lot of informative post but only have so much time in the

know about it.

Personally I'd like all traffic from all sites to migrate to a text
based medium such as usenet. I may very well be in the minority.

I've never been very comfortable with the idea of someone owning the
predominant discussion board. It has an affect on the way I post.

I'm not, for example, mentioning the usenet idea in the web forums.

Do I have your permission to share this idea in the groups listed
above, or would you care to do this yourself?

I'm not in the habit of posting email'd information into a usenet
forum and I won't start now.

Thank you for the feedback.
