ok... but...

MK> This message contains "CHRS: UTF-8 4";


this uses a web browser to view the messages as they are stored on that site...

MK> whereas this one is reduced to "CHRS: UTF-8";


see above...

using a web browser to view FTN messages is... ummm... not FTN... (or netnews
format, FWTW)... many of the complaints you've gotten are from those using true
FTN software and that which has been in use in fidonet for decades... try using
a FTN message reader or at least a nntp netnews reader on sites that offer
such... the world is a lot different there...

MK> Do you see any difference in your viewer?

see above re: "cheating" by using a web browser instead of a FTN (or nntp news

MK> If you want further evidence please ask and I will be happy to

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;
