Hello Carol,

On Wednesday June 20 2018 21:45, you wrote to me:

Listing nodes that have no public contact info as "Pvt" has been an agreed upon
standard dating from even before the birth of the FTSC.

,1,UUCP_Gateway,Louisville_KY,Allen_Prunty,-Unpublished-,9600,XA,V34,V32T

But apparantly even those 30+ year old agreed upon standards can be swept aside
by a simple "Duh... Z1 does not do it that way".

Why the hell do we still bother to invest time and energy into documenting
standards?

??? English please...


Cheers, Michiel
