    It seems odd to me that you jump to the conclusion that Digital Man was cyberstalking you.. That's a fairly serious accusation without any proof. I'm not sure how you came to the conclusion that he was cyberstalking you (or anyone, for that matter). He could have been at the main menu and had to leave his computer to do something else. He is married and has children, so I think it's certainly plausable that he had something else to attend to while he was using his BBS.

    Agree, I'm always idling on my Sbbs system, doesn't mean I'm stalking anyone here, simply that's where the session is sitting idle, while I'm doing something else.

    everytime i login to vert [which isnt often] , he is there at the main menu STALKING ME. just kidding. i just assume he has the node paging thing pulled up so it doesnt disconnect him or it's some process he's running.

    Not only that, but these BBS messages will appear online in an online search (through Google or whatever search engine you like to use) because many BBSes have a web interface to the message boards.

    Oh, geeze, thanks. <blush> Sent a dog pic.

    I've seen 3 versions of this now: One that ended with "<blush>", one that MRO quoted that said "sent a dick pic", and now one that says "Sent a dog pic". It has been suggested that it might be something wrong with my system or something in the QWK settings? I'm not sure what would cause that? But even the original message from you on Vertrauen ends with "<blush>".

    Dafuq? I think you modified his quote.. DM's original message
    didn't ha the part about the dog pic.

    probably a bug in that msg lister or slyedit

    I don't think so, my reader and SlyEdit don't add text to messages, and they don't look for specific words & phrases to change.

    The part about the dick/dog pic isn't even in DM's message on Vertrauen. It seems it was added later and then changed.

    Yeah, it did. Must be something wrong with your system?

    I went back and looked at your message and that part wasn't there. I also checked it on your system and that part wasn't there in your message.
    I like peanuts.
    And now my quote has been modified to say "dog pic".

    The "joke" I'm referring to (since apparently you can't follow context) is t modification of the quoted text in the message exchange between MRO and I, right here, in this message area. Apparently it was an "inside joke" that wa created and sustained out in the open. I didn't know we were capable of such thing. <sigh>


    i am going to keep doing it. i will call them my easter eggs

    Then set up your own BBS already, and enjoy playing whack-a-troll. It's generally difficult to permanently block anyone who wants to get a message out.

    He was referring to the changed quote lines in the message between him and MRO and suggesting that there may be a problem with my BBS. I don't think that has anything to do with the anonymous posts here.

    There's an online forum I use where modifying quoted text is against their rules. I thought modifying the quotes was what was going on here, but from my use of that online forum, my first thought was I'm not sure if people should be doing that.. The other forum I use has that rule in place because people could make it seem like someone said something they didn't actually say.

    So someone else posted your "I'm quitting Dove-Net" message and signed it as "The Millionaire" posting as Anonymous? Also (at least on my BBS), that message was immediately before your message to DM saying "Look, it's still happening!", which seems a little suspicious..
