Essentially correct. HOwever, one other point needs

An article I caused to be posted a little over a year ago
discussed how Fidonet, and usenet as well is mainly governed and operated by
'gentlemens' agreements" between various

One of those "gentlemens' agreements" has always been that
carriers and routers of echomail honored the restrictions of carriage and other
rules as promulgated by said moderator.
Making an echo available where it can be then fed to a web
site is a violation of said agreement. Janis's only
recourse, if she has any is to pursue usual avenues of
redress, if she can find who the guilty party is. Those are some pretty big
"ifs" you might say.

Hence, as I understand it (Janis may wish to clarify this in echo rules) but
the z1c echo is to be available to
nodelisted sysops in z1 only. Which means, for the most
part it shouldn't be available to bbs users, points unless
said point is operated by the nodelisted sysop, etc.

A valid point as well.

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;
