    1: normally people setup a bbs before they advertise it.

    2: i can't believe you are running a bbs you never did anything to
    and are surprised when asks you why you are advertising it.

    3: linux version is just as easy to setup as windows version now

    1: You should know by now that this is not the case, especially considering how often you complain about it.

    2: See above.

    3: He didn't say that setting Synchronet up on Linux was difficult. He (reasonably) interpreted your "run setup" comment as "run the installer (for Windows)" and clarified. But I see what you're saying - "running setup" on Linux isn't challenging enough to excuse a stock BBS. Stock sysops must be chastised for advertising at all times. Right? Right? THIS SHIT IS IMPORTANT! HE WASTED YOUR TIME!

    I just picked up a DO $5 Box this month; I've been wanting to try them out
    for a while now. I used one of their $10 coupons to try it out. I'm just playing with it and only am only running LAMP for a small website. I am already temped to upgrade to a $10 box and I am curious how that upgrade
    will go. But if lost everything it wouldn't be the end of the world.

    Exactly. Mro is really acting like he's the most important person in the world here and he's always right, but he's not. He allways over dramatizes things too.

    Meh. He's a repetitive blowhard who's a bit too easy to poke fun at (and I shouldn't, and I try not to.)

    FWIW I have a couple of things with Digital Ocean and haven't had any real trouble. That said, I always keep a somewhat recent back up someplace else just in case I wake up one morning and discover that my virtual servers have virtually disappeared.

    now you're catching on. stock sysops are part of the problem. someone
    sees this guy's shitty bbs and never returns to the land of bbsing. also
    he talks to his friends and tells of his shitty experience. bad word of
    mouth for all of us.

    now you're catching on, ecunt. treat everything i say as gospel and

    The scenario you described is entirely possible. On the other hand, the newcomer could just leave the boring BBS and move along to the next one in the list, which might be a better system. (Or not.) I suspect that anyone who would give up that easily wouldn't stick around for long in any case.

    Of course, that's not to say that people shouldn't be encouraged to customize. The more systems there are with good content, the sooner a newcomer will stumble across them, the more reason they'll have to stay. I know that's what you're trying to say - it's just too bad that you're not better at saying it. If you really wanted to change the situation, well ... something something flies, honey, vinegar, and so on.

    now you're catching on, ecunt. treat everything i say as gospel and
    literal and you will go a long way.

    Pathetic. I feel sorry for you. Best wishes.
