    Allen Prunty submitted an article this week discussing the
    so-called "social sites" of major Internet sites.  How unsocial
    they've become IMO.  I find myself barely ever checking in on
    areas like Google Hangouts, etc.  I guess they remain handy for
    contacting people now and again when that contact is not a
    member of Fidonet.  Allen discusses the pluses of using a BBS,
    how true what he writes has become.
    
    As Allen also mentioned today, bad weather has hit Louisville,
    KY where he lives..  I sure remember huddling in the basement in
    our house in Louisville now and again when Ron, the kids and I
    were living there.  I'd seen tornadoes in NY before but not quite
    as "up close" as when we were in Louisville - Be safe Allen!

    Thank you to Vince Coen for sending this in :)
    
    
    Don't take it too literally. (VC)
    
    ==================== 
     
    The frequency of sexual activity of senior males depends on
    where they were born.  Statistics just released from The
    National Statistics Office and The United Nations B.O.H.  Team,
    revealed that: North American, Australian, New Zealanders and
    British men between 60 and 80 years of age, will on average,
    have sex two to three times per week, (and a small number a lot
    more), whereas Japanese men, in exactly the same age group, will
    have sex only once or twice per year if they are lucky.
    
    This has come as very upsetting news to a lot of us at the pub,
    as none of us had any idea that we were Japanese.

    What is the Relevance of the BBS in 2017
    by Allen Prunty
    
    Social Networking and/or blogging, is what I believe, caused the
    decline of the BBS and bespelled the users with memes, graphics
    and gave the users a different way to express themselves online.
    
    Traditional BBS systems have faded away... but they have NOT
    gone away.  It's no secret that most all of the social
    networking sites are controlled by four...  or maybe five big
    corporations that provide the services for free, but who pays
    for all that data storage?  Who pays for all the bandwidth that
    the social networking sites use?
    
    Notice that they all are embedded with advertisements and by
    using their sites you agree to have tracking cookies embedded in
    your browser.  For instance you mention something about blue
    widgets in a tweet and suddenly when you go to facebook you will
    see advertisments for blue widgets on your screen.
    
    Wake up people... the social networking sites are nothing more
    than slick advertising agencies.  They find out your interests
    and tailor marketing materials to your screen.
    
    People also get tired of seeing every movement that their
    "friends do" it becomes to the point where I don't want to see
    how your farmville farm is going...  nor do I care that you
    checked into the local coffee shop for your caffiene fix every
    morning at 7am.  I even had one "friend" broadcast their cat
    having kittens.
    
    The BBS is a more cerebrial medium.  One must READ the words on
    the screen and reply to words alone.  There are no mindless
    memes that are forwarded and circulating.  There is pure and
    relevant discussion on what is going on in the world...  there
    is some time invested in each post and most of them are unique. 
    The user does not get lost in a sea of forwarded messages and
    news articles.
    
    Another plus about the BBS is that people's minds open up when
    they actually have to sit down and read a message and put
    thought into responding to it.  There are simple emojies :-) for
    instance, but rarely do you see a single emoji response on a
    BBS.
    
    As people are awakened and learn that their celebrities, news
    outlets, and politicians are not what they expect them to be
    people are starting to write more meaningful posts...  and are
    craving a medium where rich discussions can happen.  Simply put,
    they are tired of the "noise" on the social media networks.
    
    Another plus that the BBS systems have over the big corporate
    social networking sites is I don't know of -ANY- BBS that has
    agreements with the government to snoop on their users. 
    Facebook's photos are often scanned by law enforcement to find
    people who are wanted by facial matching bots.  BIG BROTHER
    watches social media.
    
    We can lead people into the BBS medium by introducing them to
    our systems.  Sometimes it takes walking a prospective user
    through logging on via telnet.  I'm finding that a lot of newer
    machines do not even have a telnet client installed.
    
    I believe that there are users out there that would enjoy the
    BBS experience...  but we, as sysops, need to provide a little
    instruction on how to get on the systems.  Much like we work on
    our menu structure, and our ansi graphics...  each BBS needs to
    have a web page that instructs people how to log on, create an
    account, put their system into Thunderbird, Postbox or other
    NNTP readers.  I don't know of many sysops that actually try to
    advertise their systems and they are just not as available as
    they could be.
    
    The Relevance of the BBS in 2017 is quite simple... it's a way
    that users can communicate without the clutter of
    advertisements, meme forwards, mindless tweets, friend checkins
    to underwater basketweaving classes and cat videos.  Although I
    do find April the Giraffe fascinating.
    
    :-)

    =================================================================
    
    
    
    INFO:
    
    Fidogazette is published by Janis Kracht, Editor.  
    
    If you have an idea for a column or a series of articles, 
    please contact me :)
    
    New! 
    Mailing-List subscriptions via 
          http://www.filegate.net/sub.html
    
    but of course you can always link into your uplink and use 
    Tick or a tick compatible program.
    
    Where to Send Your Articles
    
    Unlike most editors, I surely do not  mind running my mouth
    when there is a sparsity of articles for the 'zine.  I'd
    MUCH rather you sent in material...  lacking that, I will
    fill these issues with my meanderings and thoughts and
    hopefully we will grow into something of consequence here
    :)
    
    Write an article!
    
    If you WOULD like to submit an article, feel free to drop
    your article off at:
    
    Email attach to address: janis @ filegate.net
     
    Fidonet attach: Janis Kracht at 1:261/38
     Modem: 607-200-4076 
     Binkp: 1:261/100 filegate.net port 24555 
     telnet mailer: filegate.net
    
    If you are using routed Fidonet mail, don't send articles as routed 
    attaches.  They will fail somewhere along the path before getting here.
    Send them instead direct to filegate.net.
       
    Give it a title, sign your name and network address if you have
    one and send it along!
    
    Don't worry about the format, I can take anything you send me
    and mutilate it further as you can see above.  Linux is nice
    that way (g).  Spell checking your own work will help though
    (something I'm typically guilty of (g)).
     
    To send reviews or recipes to the Food section, email or
    netmail Janis as above.
    
    Email address for submissions to Dr.Debug:
      To send a question to Dr. Debug, email a question to:
          drdebug @  filegate.net 
      or post in the fidogazette echo!  :)
    
    To send a listing to the FidoGazette bbslist, email your 
    listing to:
      bbslist @ filegate.net 
    or post it in the fidogazette echo!
