not "ignored"... simply "unknown" in many cases because they don't/haven't read
the echo rules... they see it is a bot area and set up the bot and likely
never look at it again unless their name is in the To: field but that's hard to
do when they are using a different name for the bot and the bot doesn't have
an account on their system that they actually use to see if there are messages
to the bot...

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
