    We need to support fidonet.io at this juncture.

    Agree with you on this. Fidonet.org is worthless and I wouldn't send anyone to that out of date junk site at this point.

    You're right that putting up websites willy-nilly doesn't help
    much. I have only seen ONE new one (fidonet.io) put up recently.

    Doesn't google prioritize results based on the sites people visit the most often? ..and from that, position the search results closer to the top each time? Among the collection of willy-nilly sites out there, certain ones would ultimately rise to the top and proved to be "the" site to get the right info.

    ..Keeping dead websites around
    that contain nothing but dead links isn't helping anybody. Is it?
    What is the logical answer, then? Yes. Put up a website with
    useful information that will HELP people instead of frustrate
    them. I believe that's all that's going on here.
