First and most importantly, let me be clear in that we (Navicache.com) have no "beef with GC.com".
WE do not censor the use of the term Geocaching.com, WE do not stop anyone from posting links to Geocaching.com in the forums or in their cache descriptions, and WE have not threatened anyone with lawsuits.
We have on the other hand attempted since the beginning to work together with Geocaching.com and Jeremy had no interest in this. So I say to you Where's the beef!
What we do have here is one of many (there are more than two) sites dedicated to the sport of geocaching. We are not a sudden pop-up and try to steal some members site as some of the newer geocaching enthusiasts are often led to believe. In fact we are a mere few months younger than GC.com. We are interested in the sport (can you tell) and in keeping it free (so far so good), and providing others with the same interests a place to go to post forum messages about it, chat about it, and yes even submit cache entries (even Virtuals).
Now whether or not the sport would benefit "if everyone went to the more popular site" I guess we won't know until they all come over will we! Seriously, do you really believe that things would be better? Why would a vendor improve their product if they had no competition? They wouldn't.
By the way, while avoid censoring, you'll notice I do move threads to the appropriate forums category.
