    Sure! BTW, remember to turn on real names. Most fido echos require it.

    Snicker!

    Anyways, simple innocent mistake. I'll help him pick a good sounding fake which will keep the fidonet blowhards from messing with him.

    No one can have too many friends.

    Rules? What rules?

    Seriously, unless you folks mind, I don't in this echo. Some other echos are pretty strict about it and I just would like him not to get meanies yelling at him.

    If others wonder on the rules here, it's just 2.

    Be kind.
    Keep it fairly clean (but a little friendly innuendo is fine!).

    Can't think of anything else we'd need?

    Do you mean not counting intense psychological treatment of some sort?

    Anyhow I am standing by my submission despite the outcome ... which I suspect is/was rejected for whatever reason. Oh well maybe next time. :::sigh:::

    Smile, lots of cute ones! But being around the block a few times, if it 'doesn't seem real' the less friendly neighbors get reactive.

    the last name could be Dapenguin? Jaques DaPenguin? Kinda ketchy and most won't clue in.

    reactive.

    What's your point? I thought that was part of the 'plan'.

    Jaques DaPenguin?

    Penguins are French? Hm. Maybe Jean Luc DaPenguin is a tad more engaging?
