ML> there is nothing in dale's message indicating that there are any
ML> utf-8 characters in it

MK> In reality there was; the codes within his quotes were indeed utf-8

you cannot count on that... if we could, we wouldn't have this chrs
compatibility "DOS think" problem... that those characters happened to fit into
a certain decoding format doesn't count... especially since there is no
indicator in the message for that format...


ML> based on the message's character control line...

MK> Obviously that idea is majorly flawed. I have seen the evidence

while your observations may be validated, the presumptions are flawed...

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;
