I, OTOH I am somewhat allergic to the "it must be possible" attitude.
Admittedly my allergy has not bothered me all that much any more since I no
longer have a boss that pays me to dance to his tune, but I fear I will never
get rid of it completely.

Having said that; my comment was not just about the change of policy itself,
but also about the mistaken idea that changing a few words in policy will
actually accomplish that all of Fidonet changes from local time to UTC.

Cheers, Michiel

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;
