• Open Letter to Z1C

    From Lee Lofaso@2:203/2 to All on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 17:39:40
    Hello Everybody,

    It has become obvious that Nick Andre has become burned out
    as Z1C, and the need for a replacement must be found ASAP.

    Here is what P4 says about the Z1C position and what duties
    are required -


    6.1 General

    A Zone Coordinator for FidoNet has the primary task of maintaining the
    nodelist for the Zone, sharing it with the other Zone Coordinators, and ensuring the distribution of the master nodelist (or difference file)
    to the Regions in the Zone. The Zone Coordinator is also responsible
    for coordinating the distribution of Network Policy documents and
    FidoNews to the Regional Coordinators in the zone.

    The Zone Coordinator is responsible for the maintenance of the nodelist
    for the administrative region. The Administrative Region has the same
    number as the zone, and consists of nodes assigned for administrative
    purposes not related to the sending and receiving of normal network
    mail.

    A Zone Coordinator is charged with the task of ensuring the smooth
    operation of the Zone, which is done by appointing and supervising the
    Regional Coordinators.

    If a Zone Coordinator determines that a Regional Coordinator is not
    properly performing the duties outlined in section 5, a replacement
    should be found.

    The Zone Coordinator defines the geographic boundaries of the regions
    within the zone and sets the time for the Zone Mail Hour.

    The Zone Coordinator is responsible for reviewing and approving any
    geographic exemptions as described in section 5.6.

    The Zone Coordinator is responsible for insuring the smooth operation
    of gates between that zone and all other zones for the transfer of
    interzonal mail.

    The Zone Coordinators are responsible for the selection of the
    International Coordinator from among their ranks.

    -=end text=-

    No private elist/echolist has any official status in Fidonet.

    Wouldn't you agree? After all, you are the duly elected Z1C.

    If I'm not doing my job as ZC, I would of been nailed to the cross by now.

    The job duties of the Z1C are clearly defined in P4.
    Really not much to do -

    * maintain the nodelist for the Zone

    * share the nodelist with other Zone Coordinators

    * ensuring the distribution of the master nodelist (for difference
    file) to the Regions in the Zone

    * coordinating the distribution of Natwork Policy documents and
    Fidonews to the Regional Coordinators in the zone

    That's it. Nothing about private elists/echolists. Nothing at all
    about echomail. Why is that? Because Zone 1 has no policy at all
    concerning echomail. Zippo. And that is exactly how the previous
    Z1C, and those before her, wanted it!

    Must be the current Z1C also likes it that way.

    I agree that I run ZC1 operations on a server system and resources out of
    my
    own pocket, crank out nodelists, play Netmail-man to the best of my
    ability
    and exchange witty banter with friends here and in other Zones.

    Nick Andre asked for the gig, he got it. As such, he has only
    himself to blame. Nobody else.

    Let that resonate for a moment please... exchanging mail over a silly message network that a tiny fraction of tech-people worldwide still use today, and volunteering to keep it all running.

    Zone 1 only ecompasses a small part of the world, with less than
    300 sysops participating. And that is too much for you to handle?
    If so, let somebody else who is more interested do the job. I am
    sure there are number of very capable sysops who would volunteer
    for the gig.

    People trying to take me to task over e-lists, echolists, whatever they
    are,
    I could care less. Thats time being taken away from shameful self-gratification.

    Nick

    Since you could care less about your fellow sysops, step down.
    Please. It would be the honorable thing to do.

    Thanks for admitting Zone 1 has no policy in regards to echomail.
    Since it is quite obvious that you are burned out from the job,
    and no longer have any interest in continuing to do your duties,
    you should do the honorable thing and step down. Resign as Z1C
    so that somebody else who really wants the gig can step up to
    the plate. I hear little case mark lewis would *love* to fill
    in for you until a new election is called. So whattaya say?

    An interesting amusing open letter, thanks for the laugh, but I'm
    interested and fascinated as to why you continue to not have a node number.

    There is no more Janis supposedly preventing you from being listed, and no "probationary period" you would need to follow. You sure seem to love to post on Fido a lot, so why not get a listing and be real?

    I already voiced my support for you being listed, just as I did for Tim Richardson and others over the years who had misconceptions that "Fido doesn't like them being listed".

    Think of the fun you could have, stirring up calls for another ZC1 election and getting access to all the "secret echoes", some of which are so secret,
    not even *I* am aware that they exist. At the very least, I hope to
    entertain a Policy complaint one day.

    What better way to troll yours truly?

    FYI I never get "burnt out" from Fido, its always a learning lesson dealing with professional trolls, nodelist police and others who seem to think I'm a diety or messiah with magical wizardly powers.

    Kudos to you for that. As you may know, I've exercised my Swedish globally right of Freedom of Speech, to give both Lee and Tim the right to post in almost any echo they like.

    No matter how hard I tried Tim never made it, but Lee did (as you can see).

    Some of the old Z1 cronies still regard Lee as a paria that should never be allowed Fidonet access. Like you, I disagree. Kudos, our new Z1C, I think we can see a new Fidonet dawning in the near future thanks to you!

    Interesting. I don't know the "history of Lee", but after being
    around here only a couple of months, it became clear to me that
    he's an argumentative whacko who likes to hear himself jabber.

    That (the conclusion I reached without prior knowledge of him)
    should tell you something.

    No wonder you two are best buddies.

    Hello Bjrn,

    I already voiced my support for you being listed, just as I did for Tim
    Richardson and others over the years who had misconceptions that "Fido
    doesn't like them being listed".

    Kudos to you for that. As you may know, I've exercised my Swedish globally right of Freedom of Speech, to give both Lee and Tim the right to post in almost any echo they like.

    So have many other sysops, including many in Zone 1. In fact, I
    would say a vast majority. When your board is down for maintenance,
    or due to bad weather, or even for no reason at all, I simply log on
    to a different board and post away at my pleasure, with no interruption
    in service. Sometimes I even post from different boards, including
    yours, on the same day.

    Many boards in Zone 1 also allow me read/write access to echoes
    that not everybody is allowed to read and/or post in. You see,
    some sysops truly do believe in freedom of speech. Not a limited
    form, but rather an unlimited form.

    There are some boards that continue to deny any access to certain
    echoes, thus keeping those echoes "secret" for a chosen few. But
    the days of "secret" echoes are coming to an end, with more and
    more sysops opening access for those echoes to all.

    Thanks to those sysops who continue to stand for freedom by
    defying the wishes of those who want to control Fidonet by limiting
    access to a few. Fidonet is about promoting communication between
    individuals and groups, not stifling it.

    No matter how hard I tried Tim never made it, but Lee did (as you can
    see).

    I have not given up on Tim. Nor have I given up on others who might
    wish to join Fidonet. I haven't even given up on myself.

    Some of the old Z1 cronies still regard Lee as a paria that should never
    be
    allowed Fidonet access. Like you, I disagree. Kudos, our new Z1C, I think we can see a new Fidonet dawning in the near future thanks to you!

    When out of arguments, some folks turn to insults. As an example,
    look at our fine president. When others win a debating point, he takes
    to twitter and calls them names. To date, I have not earned that honor.
    But I hope to do so one day. If only I can find a way to grab his
    attention ...

    the blatant lie above where you state "mark lewis would *love* to fill in for you"...

    no one said anything about being seconded... you're trying to throw that in to confuse things, now...

    But can be turned down.

    of course they can...

    At least that is my understanding of basic parliamentary procedure.

    fidonet is not a parliment, congress, democracy or any other simulation of the world outside of fidonet...

    An interesting amusing open letter, thanks for the laugh, but I'm interested and fascinated as to why you continue to not have a node
    number.

    There is no more Janis supposedly preventing you from being listed, and
    no "probationary period" you would need to follow. You sure seem to
    love to post on Fido a lot, so why not get a listing and be real?

    I already voiced my support for you being listed, just as I did for Tim Richardson and others over the years who had misconceptions that "Fido doesn't like them being listed".

    Think of the fun you could have, stirring up calls for another ZC1
    election and getting access to all the "secret echoes", some of
    which are so secret, not even *I* am aware that they exist. At the
    very least, I hope to entertain a Policy complaint one day.

    What better way to troll yours truly?

    FYI I never get "burnt out" from Fido, its always a learning lesson
    dealing with professional trolls, nodelist police and others who
    seem to think I'm a diety or messiah with magical wizardly powers.

    Hello mark,

    [..]

    But can be turned down.

    of course they can...

    But only after one has been nominated.

    At least that is my understanding of basic parliamentary procedure.

    fidonet is not a parliment, congress, democracy or any other simulation of the world outside of fidonet...

    Zone 1 has no rules. P4 is not legally binding on anyone
    because it does not have the signatures of each party. All
    documents, not only legally binding contracts, demand for
    an individual's signature. Those who wrote P4 never signed
    the document. Also, P4 was never presented to each zone
    so as to have a vote. IOW, your signature is required to
    seal the deal.

    Since nobody signed on to P4, it is null and void.
    Not binding on sysops, or individuals. In any zone.

    So what do you have in Fidonet? Nothing anybody would call
    a form of government. Controlled anarchy, maybe. Chaos would
    be the better word.

    However, since Zone 1 does not have a general policy concerning
    election of officers, anything goes.

    you need to work on your reading comprehension...

    Chaos rules!

    Hello mark,

    I hear little case mark lewis would *love* to fill in for you
    until a new election is called.

    you're full of shit and i'll thank you to leave my name out of
    anything you write...

    It was a rumor. Not one I started. So please. Don't blame me.

    i'm not... i'm blaming you for spreading blatant lies...

    What lies?

    the blatant lie above where you state "mark lewis would *love* to fill in for you"...

    I never said elected. Or able to do so. And remember, it was
    all rumor, as I did not have access to the echo.

    I read the same posts as you did.

    apparently you missed some...

    Of course I did. Not having access to the echo can do that.

    Three candidates were being considered, one of them being yours truly.

    you were running?

    I have no idea. Somebody might have nominated me without my
    knowledege or consent. Not that it bothers me. In fact, I would
    be honored if such was the case.

    i sure wasn't and actively turned down any requests and/or nominations...

    Well, first you have to be nominated in order to turn it down ...

    I was not privy to the nominating process, and am totally unawares as
    to who nominated who, and why.

    then, once again, you have no clue what you are talking about...

    Why should I have a clue? I wasn't there!

    if i had wanted the Z1C job, i would have tossed my name into the
    hat... instead i actively turned down all inquiries about me
    possibly running... i don't want that position and never have
    wanted it, period...

    Nobody said anything about you being elected. Certainly not me.
    However, somebody could have volunteered you for the job ...

    re-read my statament... i was actively turning down all inquiries and
    offers of nomination... if someone had nominated me without asking me
    first, i would have turned down that nomination, too... possibly
    quite vociferously...

    Nominations need not be seconded.

    no one said anything about being seconded... you're trying to throw that
    in
    to confuse things, now...

    Apparently you know very little about parliamentary procedure
    or how things work.

    i haven't said you did...

    Or able to do so. And remember, it was all rumor, as I did not have access to the echo.

    hunh... yet the next line in your post, quoted below, says "i read the same messages as you did" so which is it? you read a restricted access echo or you did not...

    I read the same posts as you did.

    apparently you missed some...

    Of course I did. Not having access to the echo can do that.

    you most certainly would have had an idea if you were running...

    i sure wasn't and actively turned down any requests and/or

    Well, first you have to be nominated in order to turn it down ...

    read that statement again... keywords "requests and/or nominations"...

    I was not privy to the nominating process, and am totally unawares
    as to who nominated who, and why.

    then, once again, you have no clue what you are talking about...

    Why should I have a clue? I wasn't there!

    then quit sticking your nose into things you don't know anything about...

    Nominations need not be seconded.

    no one said anything about being seconded... you're trying to throw
    that in to confuse things, now...

    Apparently you know very little about parliamentary procedure
    or how things work.

    fidonet is not a parliment and you still don't know what you are talking about...
