Books could be  written about it unfortunately,  One of the more annoying 
aspects is  Bjorn Felten, the current editor of FidoNews - he's refused 
repeated  requests to pass on his editor duties for various reasons and 
he's refused  - for at least the last 10 years.  Find a telnetable BBS 
that's a  member of FidoNet and start reading the FidoNews echo for a taste 
of the  insanity.  The Fido Sysop (FNSYSOP) is also a pretty deranged
