Re: [gpsstash] Please catch me up


well, i did ask Jeremy to take over back when he did...


It's not like he did some sort of hostile takeover of all my info.. I freely
gave it to him, even forwarding him the new caches during the transition,
because I knew he could do more with a site than I could, and I was getting
sick of doing it :)

this latest nonsense has been going on a week or so near as I can figure...

I've never had a problem with anyone anywhere in this community, just seems
some people get pissed off very easily...

I enjoy geocaching.com, i enjoy all of it...
