    I think that is the first time ROT-13 has been used in Micronet. <G>

    Glad to have made a mark!

    I was hoping that people would recognize that as ROT-13. It was
    simpler to do that than steer people to wiki's and other sites.
    This way, the person who decodes it has only themselves to blame
    if they are affected by the content.

    I remember when people would add spoilers or answers to puzzles
    in their emails by using excessive <CR>s to push way below a
    message and off screen. ROT-13 is much simpler and forces the
    reader to take extra steps if they truly want the spoiler.

    I don't have a program on this laptop to work with ROT-13 though if I
    was on the BBS machine, GoldEd can decode/encode ROT-13. Hmm, this
    might be a project for me to work on.

    Later,
