    <<tumble weed rolling by>>..................

    This used to be a pretty lively echo. It was begun as a `flame' echo,
    and it got pretty hot in here.

    Along came Ross Cassell.

    Cassell has been `collecting' moderatorship of echoes for a long time,
    now. And each time he `grabs' the moderatorship of an echo, two things happen;

    He changes the entire motif of the echo with a bunch of new rules, which
    have nothing to do with the echo's original purpose;

    And almost immediately the echo goes dead, except for an occasional posting by Cassell of his `rules'.

    It happened to this echo, the `Holysmoke' echo, and most every other one Cassell has taken over. Its dead in here because Cassell killed it.

    Ross Cassell is long gone. Whatever happened to Mad Dog Matzdobre the guy
    who threatened to sue Fidonet? And Wayne Chirnside?

    I didn't know this echo was still on the backbone.

    Jail would be my guess. He isn't smart enough to do rehab.
