• File Postings

    From DesotoFireflite@VERT/VALHALLA to All on Tue Jan 17 07:22:48 2017
    I am usualy very quiet, and don't chime in on most things, but I am in agreement with some of the others about the recent influx of file postings. I enjoy seeing the BBS Ads, and I even post BBS ads here for my system, but my fears are that most people are going to turn this echo and other BBS ad echos off because of the constant file postings, as I am considering doing myself. I could live with a consolidation report at the end of every day of all the files posted in one report, but multiple reports in one day are starting to wear thin. There is an area in fido called filegate that these messages could be posted. I really feel these file postings are meant to be posted on the bbs itself, not a global echo. Please don't take this message as hostile, because it is not my intention, this is only my personal feelings. Thanks in advace for listening.

    I agree fully, this is after all a BBS ADS echo and not a filegate echo. i don't post my bbs ad but once a week for fear its too much sometimes. I freaked out the other day because when I put my weekly batch event back in I accidently set it for nightly, and my bbs ad was being posted everyday. know what is funny though? it was drounded out in file listings so truthfully I don't think it mattered to anyone because like I did, I'm sure everyone else just skips to the last message on their newscan. the only reason I'm reading this echo now is because protests that have been started. you know it is kinda harsh, but there is one way to get rid of them if THEY don't want to consolidate them... we all know what that is. its not too much to ask.

    i think it's a fidonet thing. they have their auto poster toys and obviously these two guys dont give a shit and are intent on spamming the echo into oblivion.



    not only THAT, but the files are dogshit. they arent anything anybody would want. and they certainly wouldnt want to see the same shit posted like 4+ times a day.

    yeah we can block these guys in our twitlist but jesus christ, this is spam and spam in an echo is bad for all participants as a whole.

    Agreed, there should be a line drawn somewhere. this echo had some KICKASS bbs ads in it, and I used to love to try to get creative and one up other Sysops, and it gave me driving force to also make my BBS better. Now I don't even read the area because it gets 25+ file postings daily. which should belong in a filegate echo.

    Otherwise both these guys seem cool, but, they seem to not care what the majority thinks about their actions on this network. even though at times I get out of hand. I do try to keep peace with everyone, and when I get out of hand, I drop away, or back off.. or make some commitment that helps everyone. this seems like its being done purpopsly now. and I BET they dont even read this area. I bet they skip over all their FILE ANNOUNCEMENTS like everyone else.. so if everyone is skipping over them, then WHY WASTE THE SPACE, Bandwith, and Patiences of your fellow sysops so you can play with some old outdate TIC processor or whatever the crap it is.

    With all the NEW stuff out for SBBS these days your FILBONE or whatever it is could be much more successfull if you went about it other ways.

    Back when I was running Warzone, I had created ONE networked echo that systems could pick up that had my file announcments, and if they wanted a file, they request VIA QWKNET. FTN is old and klunky now, and just too fragmented. I still have a place in my heart for it. but By far SBBS is the MOST POPULAR, and also has the most development ongoing, and in its own right can still be called a BBS, but so much more. it's what developers really wanted to create long ago.

    i think that for people that have arguments or disagreements, twitlisting is good but for just blatant spamming i think filter at the hub is more of a proper solution. if they wont tone it down.

    if they do a bbs ad and put that junk on the bottom and post it once a week i've got no problem with it.
    it's the same 2 files anyways. why post it 4x a day.

    your disturbance was indeed intentional and unwanted. they were NOT bbs advertisements. they were you posting a file announcement of the same 3 shitty linuxnet files. multiple times a day. how on earth do you not realize that is disruptive.

    It is not just you, There are at least two systems posing files received messages multiple times per day. Since this is not an echo to do such, escpecially for Fido related ones, you. and the others, are getting that backlash. You can advertise your BBS here, and even if you saved your file announcement to ONCE a day, people would not complain as they did.

    here is what i did.

    one day i forwarded all his posts that day to his bbs email.

    he got angry and called that spam! i guess he knows how we all feel.

    both prunty and tony here are intent on spamming their file announcements multiple times a day, all week long and they have no intention of stopping.

    they see nothing wrong with it. some of us that like to look at bbs advertisements have a problem with it.

    if it was once a week, that was good. but this filegate crap multiple times a day and tony's linuxnet shit mutiple times a day is just blatant spamming.

    this is not fidonet. this is dovenet bbs ads.

    i would like to have a vote to restrict their access to this msg sub to
    read only and i think a lot of people here would agree with that. they dont want to discuss it or change.

    I hope to see published here the email that the zealous mro sent to them at the same time.

    However, I think this really useless and unproductive controversy. It was enough that the good mro had sent me an email telling me "Can you please stop sending announcements that bother me?" And everything would be solved without any controversy. Among other things I have not received any e-mail / warning from Digital Man. Again for me the matter ends here, indeed ended yesterday when I removed the announcements, I expect to see go away the other announcements, otherwise I have to consider all this disingenuous.

    Since your BBS software, as well as the other system that is posting file announcements (Wildcat) doesn't support Synchronet's new in-message voting, you
    probably didn't get a chance to see the poll question that Digital Man himself posted. The question asked if people wanted these new file announcements posted
    here, and so far the results are 6 NO votes, and 1 YES vote.

    The other systems have been contacted as well, so no.. you are not being singled out here. There are specific echos on Fidonet to post your new file announcements. But you don't see anyone posting them in BBS_ADS on Fidonet either, do you? The moderator there would make quick work of that, since it is an explicit rule there to not do so.

    Since this network (Dovenet) doesn't have rules in that regard, or moderators of any kind. It's more or less up to the community whether or not they care to see spam like that in the network's areas.. as this has only started recently when other BBS softwares began connecting to Dovenet (ie: this used to be a Synchronet message network only, until other software's sysops figured out how to link to it - which is completely fine.. the more the merrier). However this isn't Fidonet, and it seems the members of this network don't want that kind of
    spam here.

    Keep it in Fidonet, please - as the people that don't want to see it, don't link up to Fidonet (or those specific echos at least).

    Regards,
    Nick

    "In their defense, you were not the only sysop they've picked on in here, although I don't know if they were sending e-mails to all of them or not."

    I hope to see published here the email that the zealous mro sent to them at the same time.

    so it's my job to police you people? cant you just be a decent human being?

    However, I think this really useless and unproductive controversy. It was enough that the good mro had sent me an email telling me "Can you please stop sending announcements that bother me?" And everything would be solved



    who are you quoting? i did not say that. more lies from you.

    without any controversy. Among other things I have not received any e-mail / warning from Digital Man. Again for me the matter ends here, indeed ended yesterday when I removed the announcements, I expect to see go away the other announcements, otherwise I have to consider all this disingenuous.

    so you have to receive a warning in order to NOT spam this message sub several times a day with the same posts?

    it's funny that you got so mad when i forwarded those posts. now you know how everyone else here feels.

    i think it's ridiculious that people have this attitude that they can do anything just as long as the person running it doesnt complain. tony here got enraged when just one day of his posts were sent to his email.

    these are the types of people who ruin it for everyone. he's the reason why they have 'do not eat' on the silica packets.

    i would like to have a vote to restrict their access to this msg sub to read only and i think a lot of people here would agree with that. they dont want to discuss it or change.


    That would defeat its purpose, which is to post ads. RO would stop anyone from posting.

    Mro I am afraid but is the third time you offend me
    "these are the types of people who ruin it for everyone. he's the reason why they have 'do not eat' on the silica packets"
    and I still quiet, please if you want to follow this discussion - again please - don't mention me anymore ok?! I hope is strong clear that you are looking for the brawl but doesn't work for me I am sorry. Few posts before I already apologised because was - not intentional - so what are you looking for now?!?! Other Sysops has already banned you and your IP from their system considering you a troll. but I still maintain a educate behaviour. Again the discussion is closed for me so from now, please, follow your discussion against the file announcements but not against me. Sorry for my bad english but I think is clear the concept.
    Thanks

    I am aware, however they are allowed to post ads just as much as you or I. While we may not like it, util now at least there was nothing in any rules that did not allow what they were posting.
