Functionally it is not a BBS, but a way to read messages. It just uses a
the users to keep the data internal to the TELEGRAM delivery only. IE: no
porting to others or news-servers etc allowed. No public facing web page
It becomes in essense an 'APP' on a smartphone and has good potential to reach
a wider audience.
Why do you fear it? Or do I misunderstand you?
To me, it's just a modern tech of the 2020's that operates in a point-to-point
delivery mode that functionall is a way to 'Offline Read' BBS messages in those
echos available and respond to what is essentially a 'Boss Node' on Fidonet who
then promulgates it to the rest of us. Harmless.
