    I used to also see those typse of posts from BBSes that use a forum interface such as vBulletin. vBulletin had a plug-in that could connect it with an NNTP (newsgroup) server, which allowed it to be used with Synchronet if a sysop desired.

    Yeah... I'm am emphatically not a fan of letting unverified people post
    on web UIs... hell, on echojs, I deal with about 4-8 spam posts a day
    that I'm clearing off, and most of those are actual people posting the
    spam... Not having at least a login screen is kind of inexcusable these
    days.

    Yep, I did. I knew of one sysop (Jon Justvig) who had vBulletin set up and was getting spam posts from it.

    I had helped him a bit with vBulletin at the time. I thought vBulletin was cool, but eventually stopped using it.
