How to protect your BBS: Do NOT keep messages for more than 180 days. Because
the way the law is written, messages less then 180 days old are afforded more
protection then older messages. Therefore, to best protect your system purge,
archive, or reload your message base about every 150 days or so. This seems
silly but will make it harder (more red tape) for the government to issue a
search warrant and inform the operator/subscriber of the service that a search
will take place. Roberts is not clear on this issue, but his message is stated
emphatically... you will be better protected if you roll over your message base
sooner.

Perhaps the best way to protect your BBS is to make it a private system. This
means that you can not give "instant access" to callers (I know of very few
underground boards that do this anyway) and you can not allow just anyone to be
a member of your system. In other words, even if you make callers wait 24
hours to be validated before having access you need to make some distinctions
about who you validate and who you do not. Your BBS needs to be a PRIVATE
system and you need to take steps to enforce and proclaim this EXPECTED
PRIVACY. One of the ways Roberts suggests doing so is placing a message like
this in your welcome screen:

"This BBS is a private system. Only private citizens who are not
involved in government or law enforcement activities are authorized
to use it. The users are not authorized to divulge any information
gained from this system to any government agency or employee."

Using this message, or one like it, will make it a criminal offense (under the
ECPA, Electronic Communications Protection Act) for an FBI Agent or other government snoop to use your BBS.

Phrack is pretty outdated. People who read that think they can still get free phone calls off a payphone if they hook up a 9V battery and some bubble gum to it. Not anymore, phone machine technology is really different now.

this is from the olden days before the www when to access a bulletein board you had to make a dial-up connection to the computer that hosted it. I'm sure the relevant laws have changed since then.

OOooh my gosh... a BBS post...

BBS is still the way to go. I think they have direct competition with FTP sites, they are pretty much the same but FTP lacks one MAJOR thing...

You cant play Trade Wars on an FTP site....

Hey PM me with the number to your BBS I wana check it out... Unless its in Canada.....
