This is the place, really, I mean it. I know that Navicache has caches listed, but you will probably find that the majority of users here are also users at GC.com.
What you tend to find here is geocachers with open minds who are willing to help and big on the community aspect of geocaching. the forums at the other place have a lot of very similar people, and I recognise a lot of the names here from GC.com. what you won't find here is a very small number of cachers who are very closed minded and wouldn't post in an open forum anyway, these are the ones who often reply "If you don't like the rules, go somewhere else" when they don't have a constructive answer for your opinions.
There is no censorship here, I can say www.geocaching.com www.cachepoints.com www.geocachingworldwide.com brillig.com/geocaching/ without any fear of my post having to be checked for compliance.
Like the man says, they built it, we came, but there is always someone out there who hasn't gotten the word yet.
BTW I have posted quite a few times over there with the words navicache and www.navicache.com and they have always allowed them, but that may be because my posts are always in a constructive context.
As I said, we on this forum don't have anything against "them" at the other site, mainly because we are also "them" ourselves from time to time. that's what I like about this site, you are accepted here as a geocacher, first and foremost. Quinn's mission statements have always reflected that this site is here for everybody.
Footnote, just as I predicted, while typing it, this post went straight onto the forum, without having to be reviewed.

Life is a succession of choices, choose wisely when you can as most of the choices are not made by you.
