• A poor idiot tries to kill Fidonet ;-)

    Hi, ALL!

    Yes, Fidonet cannot purge messages sent by idiots. And anyway it is good. Now, most ugly persons now sit in Internet, for instance in Youtube. They are upload
    ugly things about other people and then kill negative comments. But here the comments are unbreakable. Idiots will always see what the people think about them.

    Bye, ALL!

    Hi! Alexander,

    The old Fidonet way of purging idiot users worked, and took little effort. It seems that some sysops survived the process if it was indeed applied in the haste to get more systems on-line.

    But here the comments are unbreakable. Idiots will always see what the people think about them.

    Then it behooves us to not be unkind to those who cannot help themselves. Negative behaviour begets a negative environment. A positive response encourages their exit.

    Cheers,
    Paul.
