I like being able to use a BBS to learn how these Computers do what they do
and how to use them to get things done that interest Me.

Also read messages about other things I'm interested in, such as Ham Radio,

I can't recommend BBS's to anyone still going to Public Schools because some
people write foul words in their messages.

There is a lot of very good information in BBS Echo Conferences.
I save many messages to refer to later.
I edit some messages after I saved them, to make them G Rated.

If I ran a BBS it would lose most of the Users because I would check messages
written by my Users and Edit out any foul words before they left my BBS.

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;
