Thanks for the insight into the early days, DeeJay. Interesting piece of info. I kind of suspected that geocaching.com did some trolling and/or co-opting to build their base before people got around to discovering the site.
Well, it wasn't quite like that, Pat. As geocaching began to get more popular (well, more popular than 3 or 4 active caches in the world), the posters on the GPS newsgroups thought it would be a good idea to move all the listings on to a website. Jeremy stepped up to coordinates the site, and it became geocaching.com. As the site became popular, people stopped using the newsgroup for listing caches.
