• The Power Of The Synchronet BBS Users Vs. The Power Of The Synchronet BBS Sysop

    From The Millionaire@VERT to Digital Man on Friday, September 25, 2020 19:23:17
    It seems that your users control the BBS and network here, not you it seems. That's how I see it through my eyes. I'm frankly very disappointed at the
    way the rules are applied here. If some one or some people were abused in a wrongful way or shameful manner on my BBS, those people who were the root of the cause would be severely disciplined and rightfully terminated. No questions asked. I come here to have fun, write messages to start conversations, lay down ideas, and in general, enjoy the bbs atmosphere which I once started many years ago as a User and as a Sysop. It's a real shame that I have been labelled as the minority of this place here and I hope one day in your heart that you never end up like I did. It's a long way down the ladder when that crucial moment
    in your life happens that way. Reasoning is not the solution it seems. Only hatred, racism, prejudice and bias are the only practices that are relied upon. Maybe one day hopefully things will change for the better but at this moment it seems.

    What does this "discipline" and "termination" actually look like in practice? Genuinely curious as to what you would do.

    The minority of what?

    It's a long way down the ladder when that crucial moment in your life happens that way. Reasoning is not the solution it seems. Only hatred,

    Are you having a stroke, man? I sincerely hope you contact medical help if you're having difficulty forming sentences as that's usually a sign of a stroke.

    Maybe you should start your own network that you can be in charge of?

    That would be a fantastic idea.

    It seems that your users control the BBS and network here, not you

    The world and any hobby (BBSing or otherwise) does NOT revolve around
    you, me, or anyone else. Everyone else, male and female, came into this
    world, as naked and broke as I did...and are going out the same way.

    Life is NOT "Fair" or "Burger King". Fair is a fall carnival, a
    weather term, and a call in baseball, and you can NOT always 'Have
    It Your Way'. I have been forced to accept these 2 truths many times
    in the last several years...just like swallowing a bitter pill, and
    nearly choking.

    In short, if you don't like the echo, you're free to leave it. If
    you don't like the software, you're free to go to another one. And,
    if you don't like the hobby, shut your system down, sell off all of
    your computer equipment, turn off your internet access, and go find
    another hobby.

    Another hobby I have, amateur radio, has gotten to where some in
    that have done me dirty. So now, I'm only "on the air" for where
    I am running various traffic nets as primary or backup net control,
    (I do the nets because I have an interest in the organization or
    topic for the net), or for a "sked" (where another amateur radio
    operator meets me on a selected frequency for a QSO (chat)). I
    haven't done many license exams since 2019, due to COVID-19...
    because most of my fellow examiners are in "the vulnerable group"
    for COVID-19...and I can't find a place to do exams.

    A third hobby I have, square and round dancing, has me doing 6
    tasks with the state organization, and 2 tasks with a local club...
    even though I haven't done any square dancing since March, due to
    COVID-19. Yet, I prefer to work "behind the scenes" with their
    website, and their monthly publication.

    My goal is to not spend more than an hour or two a day, with ANY
    of the hobbies that I have...otherwise, I'll get burned out. Yet,
    with most hobbies, 1% of the people do 99% of the work. But, ANY
    hobby should NOT take priority over things like church, family,
    health, job, or "honey-do's".

    Your handle may be "The Millionaire", but I'm sure that there are
    others in here who don't believe you're worth a wooden nickel with
    all your rants. At least I post my real name, instead of hiding
    behind an alias.

    And if you or others don't like my posts, they can put me in
    their twit list, or ban me from their system. With other things
    outside the BBS, I logon ONLY to my system. Lately, I logon to
    update the ham radio and weather data, answer my QWK Mail, and
    that's it. There are a bunch of games I'd love to play, but I
    don't have the time to do such.
