When (if ever) should I toss in the towel on the rec hierarchy and
switch to alt?

Is anyone else willing to share with the letterbox/confluence crowd?


I'm getting mostly positive feedback here and in the Navicache forums.
The Groundspeak forums (or rather, those there who've voiced their
opinion) aren't being as open to the idea.

I refuse to give up on the newsgroup idea.

Too many people who are also tired of things like downloading the
entire (300 post) "What do you do for a living" thread to see one or
two additions at the bottom.

I really (really-really-really-really-really) want to sync my Palm
with the geocaching newsgroup and read it while in line at the bank.

I can do this with any other topic of discussion I'm interested in.

sci.geo.satellite-nav - Yes
Kibology - yes
Peeves - yes
rec.auto.makers.honda - No problem

Any one of the 29,446 groups available on the Newsguy server can be
read by me, while sitting at my computer or while offline and out
waiting for a haircut.

Anything that is, but geocaching.
