In all fairness, and not trying to start any kind of flame war, the GC site clearly states that the open forum is for discussion of geocaching topics. To get to the off-topic forum you must become a premium member. Also, the site was built by, and is run by, Groundspeak and they have a right to run it however they wish just as Navicache can run theirs however they wish and you can run one you create your own way.
The bottom line is simply that if you want to play in someone else's sandbox you usually have to play by their rules. Otherwise, either voting with your feet or creating your own site are your only alternatives. Slamming them because they don't run their site your way isn't going to do any good.
In any event, welcome to NC and, if you are new to it, welcome to the strangely addictive world of geocaching.
