    The gating on this system of a selected few alt.bbs newsgrops is to a
    very few nodes in Region 19 that don't run a Synchronet system with a
    direct news link. It is obvious that one of them has a re-post problem
    and the dupe are coming in with a different MSGID kludge. I will find
    out which one it is and have him either unlink from the
    ALT-BBS-SYNCHRONET echo or correct the
    dupe problem.

    Rob, I sent you NetMail about having cancelled the alt-bbs-synchronet
    echo, After the fact I tracked down the problem system and have sent
    him a message to either correct his dupe problem or I would unlink him
    from all echomail feed from my system... He answered back and unlinked
    the alt-bbs-synchronet echo from his system.

    I may re-establish a link in the Newsgate program to alt.bbs.synchronet
    IFF I am convinced that there are no more dupes coming in that are
    getting past the Squish dupe detection that are headed for the Newsgate progam... That is unless you have any objection.

    The important thing to understand is that the SYNCHRONET echo on FidoNet and the alt.bbs.synchronet newsgroup are already gated to each other (here on Vertrauen). If you're going to use Newsgate to gate alt.bbs.synchronet to FTN, it's important that it gets distributed via FTN with an echo-tag *other* than SYNCHRONET. I have no objection so long as that's understood.

    It's limited distribution (as far as I know) in Region 19 as "ALT-BBS-SYNCHRONET". (Note there are no dots as my old Squish tosser

    It may in fact be a duplicate effort in the case of the SYNCHRONET echo, but it is not the only newsgroup that I offer to those that aren't running a system with a built-in newsgroup system. As I mentioned before I'm certainly not trying to step on anyone's (Digitalman) toes by offering it as an echo. I believe, as I said before, that I've eliminated the unfortunate duplicate message posting problem so as NOT annoy others in the actual newsgroup.

    They should just mainstream fidonet and eliminate the dead echos and keep
    a handful of the essential ones instead of expanding it or artificially populating it with msgs from other sources.

    i remember years ago they were doing this with some active newsgroups that didn't even know they were being gated to fidonet.
