    I'm used to the concept that an ANSI post won't display particularly well on some systems, but _that_ is new to me.

    I'm kinda wondering what happened.

    My board seemed to think that Paulie420 responded to it, to me, for one of those, but it... didn't work.

    This got me interested enough to go back and have a look. I see something
    that looks like a giant snail with a red and white shell, jammed into about
    10 lines. Not the SuperBBS is at all ANSI message friendly :)

    Ah, I thought it was just me. Thankfully not then.

    You'll probably have to check your logs to see where they came from, if anywhere.
