Ok, I can accept it is totally wrong, but I am loosing echos because of
the software, this is not acceptable either. The moderators are quoting
rules about "exessive headers" and "exesive message noise" and I am being
forced to turn off feeds. Without the capability of seemless message
tossing, ie looks like a normal fido message, I can not afford the
headaches of running ifmail and will go back to DOS. The technology you
have developed is great, but your opinion on the headers DOES NOT fly with
moderators. Currently fido policy seems to allow the moderators to be gods
and us loly sysops have to obey anything they say.

Please put a flag in the software to allow us to turn these off if we
want. I can not afford to loose my echo feeds.
