    Hello Everybody,

    Ward Dossche has stated his desire for limited free speech.
    And is now asking his fellow sysops, such as Mark Lewis, how
    best to enact his policy. I suggest all Fidonet sysops
    start by doing so with Ward Dossche and Mark Lewis.

    Howzzat? Limited free speech for Ward Dossche and Mark Lewis,
    unlimited free speech for everybody else (including me).

    Sound like a winner?

    I'm wondering how many ways there are to deal with trolls
    in Fidonet ...

    i can think of three off the top of my head...

    1. one was used in the past to completely filter out certain ml>posters/systems from the stream...

    2. per system system-wide twit filters where the posters/systems
    are filtered for ALL users of the system... if your software has
    such capability...

    3. per system per user twit filters where the posters/systems
    are filtered by users that elect to use the twit filter... if your ml>software has such capability...
