Re: [gpsstash] Re: All the latest nonsense



Well it looks like this sport has finally gotten its share of individuals that are making life miserable for the people who really enjoy this sport. It's too bad when a few individuals get to dictate to the rest of the group. As for me, I just look at the discussion group as an avenue for information only. I just could not pass up this opportunity to let others know that this is "your" chance to do something without the interference of others. If you truly like the outdoors and the people you meet then I say "screw them morons who want to ruin this sport".
In life there will always be those who want to ruin "your" good times. Well, now is the time for you to stand up to these jerks and tell them that "you will not give up". Hang in there bud, life only gets better each and every day. Forget the forums! Go hide a cache! It will make you feel better.
Aloha from Hawaii,

If you were getting your joy from the discussions lists and that joy is no
longer there for you.. then of course.. happy trails to you and it's *your*
decision. If you received joy from the hunt, the hike, the nature and the
adventure then the discussions shouldn't be stopping you, but since they are
going to stop you from geocaching.. it's still *YOUR* decision.
