Yes, rather well done imho.

MvdV> Passwords stil have a function. Sad, but true.

YEs it is. Any connection of the type which is routine in
FIdonet should be secured imho. YOu don't get a regular
link with me unless there are session and packet passwords
in place.

Then there's the "blast from the past" article that ROy
posted in fIdonews yesterday. mIscreants can still do such
things using unsecured links.

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;
