That is what -Unpublished- is for.

The default for MINphone will be changed to 1 in 3.3.2. This should
effectively disable the check, because it will pass the line as long as there
is at least 1 digit in the phone number field. Nodelist entries with no digits
in the phone number field are errors, and should be flagged as such, with the
only exception being -Unpublished- for Pvt, Hold, or Down nodes.

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;
