    Have you ever been on a Synchronet BBS that was haunted or run by
    hackers? That would be scary to say the least.

    Do you mean like haunted by ghosts? I have never heard of ghost haunting computers or BBSes.

    I was wondering about that too. What exactly is a haunted BBS, and if such a thing exists, why would a sysop want to keep running a haunted BBS?

    Consider this: you'd always have users logged in. :)

    Never had any dead people logging onto mine, but if they did I'd welcome the traffic.

    I can think of some people who are apparently very much alive but who, for me, haunt some of the echos on various networks. :)

    Maybe a haunted BBS won't allow the sysop to turn it off?

    i used to have a dead person contact me on yahoo msger. her husband used to turn on the computer and her pc was riddled with viruses.


    it was so creepy and my buddy was also her friend and got the msgs too.
