Not at all. In a user-specified string, the U,NC flag is used by the
Network Coordinator of a net which has split the duties of NC and Host and
the NC does NOT occupy the Net/0 position in the nodelist.

However, the ZC and RC flags are not split at any time, so there is no
need for a user flag. OTH, the *ECs are listed like the NC flag for the
same reasons as the NC flag. U,ZEC - U,REC - U,NEC

You surely should have known this, being a freshly elected FTSC member.

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;
