Apologies for earlier tantrum :oops:
Probably suffering from late-night-itis. :wink:

Don't worry, Citria - happens to everyone, sooner or later!! Especially if you start playing across multiple time zones :wink:

One thing you learn real quick around here is that the forum does a lousy job at transmitting true intent. I'm in a few forums (fora?) and they all have their fair share of PERCEIVED hostility followed by several posts of apology. I've been guilty on many an occasion of flaring up at something that wasn't mean't to be personal. I've done my share of offending people and I'm trying to mend those bridges. Mea culpa but I'm learning.

That's one of the reasons I have posted very little to these 'breakaway' site threads. I'm astonished that our game has gone form sporadic outbreaks of friendly rivalry to what seems like open and bitter conflict.

Didn't all this start from a desire to help people overcome death and tragedy? How did it get to this?

Yeah, I dunno. I think I'm going to stick to "browsing" for a while. Much safer option for someone with foot-in-mouth disease!! :)

Don't even think of it. NO-ONE has more right to be here than anyone else and we can all speak our minds. Not everyone will agree but I guarantee they'll all support the right have your say. That's what this is all about. Some amazing ideas come from debate...
(Some pretty lame ones too...but you gotta take the good with the bad! :D :D )

Maybe I can start a "happy geocachers" thread where you are only allowed to post nice things. (Ok, now I'm sounding like Tinkerbell "think happy thoughts everyone!")
Hey - is there a thread out there discussing the placement of large numbers of boring/pointless caches? That's something I'd like to complain about!!

Good idea Cit. I'd suggest you start an entire Happy Geocachers breakaway organisation but I think we've got enough to worry about here :wink: :wink:

Oh that note, I think I'll go to bed and dream happy geocaching dreams :) (and avoid late-night-itis :( ). Having read your post on another thread Manta, I think I'll stay away from your posts so I don't catch the MantaGeo-flu as well :wink: . Hope you get better soon.

Thanks. I'm sure I'll be out there struggling through the lantana in no time.

Be interesting to see if the poll results would be the same now that GCA has been listing Caches for a year. Was a pretty clear vote in the first couple of weeks of 2005!

Continuing here in but for a state approach not national.
