    the message creation system can add tear lines... that
    would be the editor or maybe the BBS software after the
    message is created and imported into the message base when
    the user leaves the editor after saving the message...

    I know Maximus will add a tear line (in fact, any FTN-enabled BBS
    software I've run will do that). Squish will do it also if it find an echomail message without a tear line.

    any software, from the editor back to the tosser can add
    tear and origin lines... the key is if one already exists,
    it should not be messed with... but operators have control
    over their systems and if they want to change these lines,
    they can up to the point of the messages being packed into
    pkts for delivery to other systems...

    I think Maximus ensures this by adding a tear line even if the message
    has one. MultiMail puts its own tearline in but Maximus will, on
    occasion, "invalidate" MM's tearline. Not sure what the criterion is
    for that.
