• PGA ... Pretty Good Announcement ...

    From Ward Dossche / IC@2:2/1000 to All on Sat Jul 1 18:54:12 2023
    General Rules:

    1. The moderator's ruling is final.

    2. No vulgar language. This includes, but is not limited to, flames
    and profanities.

    3. Discuss only articles printed in the Fidonews Publication. A certain amount of straying from this is however expected and encouraged.

    4. In the event that some ingenious person figures out a way to bypass
    these rules, the moderator reserves the right to make a rule to
    end the situation.

    5. Articles are not to be submitted nor will they be accepted in the
    echo. If you can write a comment in the echo, you can just as easily
    make that a personal letter to the editor -- everyone in the echo
    will still see it, only a few days later.

    Fidonews Editor, 2:2/2, Moderator

    Oh, I think they all figured it out OK. The problem is, that we nowadays have far more gimmes than lemmes in Fidonet.

    When there's more people waiting for what they think they are entitled to, than people that are willing to make contributions to our common network, that's when the well will dry out.

    That's not really a lemme, that's kind of a doomsday suggestion. Why not suggest that we discontinue Fidonet?

    Oh wait, that can be easily accomplished from you horizon. If you don't like sharing, just move to your Telegram channel and you can continue whatever gives you a hard-on.

    never used telegram.

    maybe someone needs to make a bbs door about fidonews.. a game of sorts.

    "volume number change simulator"

    it could even pre-populate the field so all you have to do is press enter. hell at that point might as well make it actually post it here.
