• Tom Dick and Harry?

    From Crackerjak@80:774/82 to All on Tue Oct 9 22:23:34 2018
    Okay, if there was a way to lock my user name to only me, this would solve a few issues I have. Imagine if you will, you're out and about. Your phone gives you a beep, because someone mentioned you in a post.
    Cannot happen here, as there could be a Tom in Russia who is Crackerjak, or a Dick in Africa who is Crackerjak, and a Harry in the UK that is also a Crackerjak.
    I understand the diversity of BBS's. PCs never play nice with anthing other than a PC. So is this even a possibility, that I could have my handle across BBS's running on OS's across the globe? I strongly doubt it. There would have to be a centralized hub of every user account that would have to be checked every time some harry dick named tom tried to login as my handle to prevent this. But could this hub/database ever see the light of day and would it be practical to the BBS community?

    I certainly hope not, for a couple of reasons. It requires someone to be in charge of maintaining it, and existing BBS software will never work with it.
