(fact-based jokes aside, im definitely keen on a return of oldschool forums :)

@lrhodes I think @ajroach42 has posted quite some ideas about federated #BBS already at some point. :)

@lrhodes federated BBSs looked/look like fidonet and synchronet.

Local posts, federated posts. Local email, federated email. Phone trees.

@ajroach42 @lrhodes some of those BBSs still run both fidonet and synchronet on their boards! It's exciting to travel back in time in the threads.

@lrhodes I'm trying to find the least archaic feeling BBS that supports sneakernet federation. I'm going to run a local node and federated by post.
