      Hey Jer ...

      Can I have a copy of those files?  Maybe it would be a great starting place.  I only have two HF rigs and 2 VHF rigs.

      Hi Mike..> When My Pactor Forwarding Partner informed me that I was sending messages TO Music I looked at a few.. They were incomplete parts of larger files.. Like 7Plus I saw no reference to 7Plus however.. Knowing at most they were gibberish eating up bandwidth and I did not see any need for such to pass here.. So I simply added MUSIC to the to filed reject..


      I made no other investigation or do I plan to..  I wish I could offer more of an explanation or something… Maybe I can find one in my logs and send you an example?? I will look.

      This all comes down to communicating with your forwarding partner when
      he/she is added and what bulletins/messsages
      They would want to receive, it isn't that hard to ask!

      Rather then limiting the message size to be sent, as an example in FBB T
      10, use J 0 right below the forwarding file block call sign
      To stop all 7Plus, I know this doesn't cover all, like Music but this is
      how I handle the 7Plus, I only send 7Plus to requested BBS'S
      And very few of my partners I have set Global (G *)

      Setting the message size to be sent will affect all bulletins, such as
      the ARRL News Letter & WX, but may be there is no interest
      in the News Letter or WX anymore?

      I reject TO Music, how ever to be honest with all, I haven't ever looked
      at what the Music file is, may be someone
      Would be nice enough to explain what TO Music is or does?

      That would be effective for one station - but it is best to address the
      bigger picture and seek solutions that do not require a thousand
      band-aids, administered or not, here or there. The filtering should be
      way, way upstream. - At the point of origin.

      SYSOPs who let users run wild - should start having problems finding
      forwarding partners.

      Under those conditions they'd soon get the idea, I am sure.

      It's simple.
      Under forwarding parameters you have a Max size to send and receive. Set
      those numbers so only short, reasonable length, text messages get
      As far as attachments are concerned, Anything music or graphics takes up
      much more space than any text message therefore will be blocked.

      Neither of these things are regulated by FCC R&R except for the FIRST
      forwarding bbs
      sysop (in the case of malicious content).

      But they are BOTH the responsibility of a "responsible" sysop (as WA4ZKO
      And each forwarding sysop can, and should, adjust HIS bbs accordingly.

      I see nothing wrong with CX2SA's paragraph.

      The reject filters are your friend, I mainly use it to stop bulls
      comming in that should not be send to me like other european countrie
      codes like @DL or even other continents like @latnet.
      offcourse you can also ask your forwarding partner to just send you the
      stuff that are for your city, province, state, country, continent and ww
      but for most it is simpler to just send everything and let the others
      sort it out.

      One big problem I run into myself a lot is that it is simpler to get
      forwarding from another continent then from a local bbs
