The previous version of my mail reader, PMMail, included such dialogs
as "REALITY CHECK! Are you sure you want to do that?" for such major
items as deleting an entire mail folder...

Maximus CBCS, a popular BBS package, produces an "ERR #999: Operator
confused - Press ENTER to return to reality" if the sysop tries to
perform a remote-only function (such as "Download") from the console.



Your friend and mine,
