MvdV> Just release the next issue of Fidonews without FILE_ID.DIZ and see what|
The problem with such an arrogant attitude is that many sysops don't
complain when certain functions are removed, they just leave Fidonet with a
sigh of resignation.
The main reason we can still maintain our network is backward compatibility.
The FILE_ID.DIZ files are one example.
But of course, if you're not running a BBS -- just running a glorified point
system -- you don't need certain old functions like the above.
