ATASCII was great... I used to call boards that let you use ATASCII in
public message boards, and I'd use the cursor movement keys to move up to
where the user's handle you were replying to was going to be printed, and
overwrite their names with rude insults...

This is exactly the kind of behavior that, if I saw it today, I'd think,
people like this don't belong on the 'net... but I was about 10, and so
were most of the other BBS users, so it didn't matter...
