    I have about 16 users on my board since it's relaunch and I can see about 3 of them used bogus names or email addresses. The rest are true records. There are all types out there... Same as it ever was...

    Would be nice if you had the balls to write me a private message about this instead of smearing my name all over the net. All I ask for is you real name and address for my records, but you are welcome to use a handle. There is a warning before you join, and you have the option to decline. I hope you did decline, as people like you give BBSing a bad name. Go back to your kiddie world, and leave the adults alone.

    okay so it's about cg learn's bbs. you are correct, he's going a bit overboard with the questions. but... his catching scheme for false info is pretty poor. i was able to enter penis1 penis2,etc for most info.

    i dont think he's a bad guy, and i know he's been around for a while, i just think he used bad judgement here.

    i would only ask that users use a real location name and email address[for getting lost password]. that's just me. people do things how they want and they pay the price if it doesnt work out.

    It's old software for gods sake. I have no control over the questions it asks. This software was made in the early 90's. It's up to show people what BBS'ing was like back then.

If it's to hard to give an honest name, address, and phone number, I really don't want that person on my system. Why is this even a concern to other people, if you or they don't like my system, just don't call it, but if you or they do call it, respect me enough to give me true information.

    I have tried to give the public two nice systems, that they can play games on, get old files, and feel proud to be a member of. I give this freely, and to be critizized for the way I conduct and run my system from other sysops is just wrong on any level. I've been running a bbs since 1991, and I've never had to defend my system like this.

    Sysops volunteer their time and use of their systems and the users access
    such systems is a PRIVILEGE NOT A RIGHT. The sysop's have plenty of justification to for their rules that they establish on their own systems.

    I have been running a public bulletin board system for a long time,so I have learned from experience that some the users intentions to do harm can be questioned. You may have forgot that some of the networks like Fidonet
    requires the users to use their real name when posting messages in some
    of the echoes.

    Back in the 90's a individual user caused some issues in one of the Fidonet Echoes. He used a alias name to post a message in one of the echoes and he pissed off several users including the echo moderator. I received a complaint from the echo moderator, ban the user from the system and he went around ban and creating a new account using different information. Then he cross posted and pissed off some user in the other echoes and pissed off the echo moderators.

    Most users intentions are good several of the users on my bbs system have caused a lot of issues.

    This is a prime example explains that without having standard rules you have
    no accountability like what is going on in the internet newsgroups.

    Most sysop's have the ability to protect the users privacy, and they should respect them. I do not agree with the statement you made above.

    hey hey hey!

    i was stalking people THEN and i am stalking them NOW!!

    anyways, what i think today's sysop should be looking for in a user is someone that is genuine. and you can do that by asking for an email address and location and a watchful eye.

    these people signing up to his system could be bots just entering in info from a script, so it's not proving much.

    anyways, it's his system and he can do what he wants. and he will see the outcome of his decisions.

    no i wouldnt give my name and address and other information. it's just a bbs and i'm not doing business with you.

    And that's your right, but on the same token, I adhear to the rules of the given BBS I log into. Honestley, It's a name, address, and phone number. I don't give out the info, I don't sell the info, and I sure as hell don't call or write anyone, but I do require that people give honest and factual info when signing up for the first time. Everyone can use a handle from that poing forward in all the games, and most of the echos except for fidonet.

    oh, i didnt notice it was gap. i just logged in for a second to see what the guy was talking about.

    That's ok, most don't. It's old software. I'm kinda proud that I got it to work on telnet. It was the first software I used back in the day. It does have it limitations, but I'm still proud of it as I was a beta tester on the GAP Team.

    yeah you're right, you have a right to run it how you want to. just like i run shit the way i run it.

    Yes, And that is you options, and I respect it fully. I just ask to be respected for what I do, and the rules I have. We both run two different kinds of systems, and there is a place for both of us. I really like your system, and as you know I visit from time to time. I have nothing bad to say about your system or the way you run it, and I respect you and your oppinion. You know I have asked you many times from help, and prob will again in the future.

    honestly i dont get why you want people's real names and addresses.

    It's just the way I choose to do it

    no it's not wrong for people to voice their gut reaction of being asked all these personal questions; it's these people being honest.

    I agree, no harm no foul

    When you agree to exchange mail with different networks then you agree to follow their rules like Fidonet. Using a alias name to post in most of the fidonet echoes is not allowed.

    yeah you're right, you have a right to run it how you want to. just like
    i run shit the way i run it.

    That is your choice.


    it, but I want the correct info to begin with. If it's to hard to give honest name, address, and phone number, I really don't want that person my system. Why is this even a concern to other people, if you or they d like my system, just don't call it, but if you or they do call it, resp me enough to give me true information.


    When a new user is creating a new account on my bbs system I only ask the
    users real first & Last Name, City & State and their DOB (MM/YEAR) that is
    used to determine if they should get access to my adult areas. I read to many stories on how a sysop gave their son to X-rated material on their system and got pissed up at them.

    I took several measures to help protect the users privacy. The users alias names are used when they are playing online games, post messages in the
    local & in the internet newsgroups. The user whois and userlist commands have been disabled and when the user joins a group that requires them to use their real name a screen displays informing them that they are required to use
    their real names when posting messages in that group. I also have a user privacy statement telling the user(s) that the sysop is prohibited from releasing any information from the user log file.

    And that's your right, but on the same token, I adhear to the rules of the given BBS I log into. Honestley, It's a name, address, and phone number. I don't give out the info, I don't sell the info, and I sure as hell don't call or write anyone, but I do require that people give honest and factual info when signing up for the first time. Everyone can use a handle from


    so, why do you want real name, address and phone number? what does that information do for you? why isnt name, location and email good enough?

    Yes, I know, but do it with respect. I just don't feel what was said about the flashlight was respectfull, that all.


    i dont know what you mean by flashlight

    the funny thing is, there's no fucking users anymore to see me write penis1 as my location and nobody wants the privilege of being a bbs user anymore.

    Sadly you are very correct, I get maybe a call a month on my bbs now. We
    are in a dying hobby unfortunately.


    so before i said i wasnt getting ddos attacks; now i am.

    so i guess we ARE getting users like crazy! just not the good kind.

    When you agree to exchange mail with different networks then you agree to follow their rules like Fidonet. Using a alias name to post in most of the fidonet echoes is not allowed.



    you can post in fidonet and other msg nets under an alias if you SIGN your name at the bottom.

    sysops can just lock down the areas and ask users to apply to have access.


    but come on now... we dont have tons of users so this is all imaginary.

    to use their real names when posting messages in that group. I also have a user privacy statement telling the user(s) that the sysop is prohibited
    from releasing any information from the user log file.


    if you are legally bound to release information you will.

    The user haveto provide their real name but they also have the option to use
    a alias name, If the network policy allows them to use a alias name, then the system is configured to use their alias name except for Fidonet. If the user joins a message bases that requires them to use their real name then a
    warning notice is posted on the screen to inform them of the rules.

    Depends on your definition. ARAPANET started in the late 60's/early 70's. ARAPANET was limited and not open to the public. In the early 80's it was opened up to other systems, but not to the general public. In the late 80's the World Wide Web came to life and started the ball running as we know it.

    The first recorded dial-up BBS was developed and brought online by Ward Christensen and Randy Suess using CBBS in 1978 and was open to the public.

    So, I'm sorry Mro, systems accessible to the general public were BBSes and did, in fact, predate the generally accessible Internet.

    nope. bbses did not come before the internet. that was what was
    stated and that is not true.

    I know, I know. You reject reality and inject your own misconceptions.


    no, it's a fact.

    nope. fidonet has only a handful of people using it.

    I didn't realize that Fidonet was the gawky unpopular kid waiting, desperately, to be asked to prom. And I didn't realize that the number, or lack there of, of people using Fidonet mattered to anyone. 'Cept maybe you apparently.

    there's a lot of things you arent aware of. it's all part of being stupid.

    If the users are unable to follow the simple signup procedure do you think they are really think if you allowed them to use a alias name to post messages in the Fidonet Echoes that they are going to include their real name? I do not think that will happen.


    In the U.S there is no such thing as privacy in the courts nor on Federal Documents or being a Federal Employee, In Accordance to the Privacy Act of 1974 names is not protected under that law.



    first, let's all recognize that i am the greatest bbs sysop that ever lived. and if that's too hard for you to believe i'm sure you can put
    me in the top ten.

    that being said, fuck fidonet. nobody likes fidonet. fuck them up
    their stupid asses. bunch of faggots on fidonet. i dont know what's
    more lame. you ham radio faggots or fidonet guys.


    anyways, i have seen people sign their name in their fidonet msgs, and
    i have also done that and i wasnt the first guy to do it. besides, who the fuck cares? it's fidonet. there's 5 people using it.

    Too much hate in the heart... :-)

    so, why do you want real name, address and phone number? what does that information do for you? why isnt name, location and email goo enough?

    If the users are unable to follow the simple signup procedure do you th they are really think if you allowed them to use a alias name to post messages in the Fidonet Echoes that they are going to include their rea name? I do not think that will happen.

    popularity does infact dictate who is is correct when you are running something that is based on judgement and affects whether you obtain users.

    no users = bad judgement AKA wrong.
