You were right. Me too, but you said it first.
The FN_SYSOP echo is a general chat echo, open to all.
Not just sysops, but also probationary sysops as well.

31∩┐╜Mar∩┐╜2017, nodelist.090: Node removed from the nodelist
With no rules to play by, and the echo itself open to all,
why are some sysops still seeking to make it a "secret" echo?
Some questions may be best left unanswered ...
What happened to Allen?
Is he having health issues that preclude him Fidonetting?
