The Fido Dog is depicted in this manner as a sign that the network is in distress, from the many violations of the trademark owned by Tom Jennings to the actions of a number of its members.

FidoNet Nodelist
How the IC Reacts to Criticism


Fido®, FidoNet®, and the dog with diskette are registered marks of Tom Jennings and Fido Software.

    Amid criticism from leaf nodes, ZCC members and other concerned elected officials of FidoNet, the previous IC, who was voted out of office by his peers, displayed a talent for insults, inappropriate language and continued petty behavior in a recent issue of the Zone 2 Nodelist.

;A FidoNet Nodelist for Friday, April 27, 2001 -- Day number 117 : 130
;A Copyright 2001, Fido Software (although this does not mean a shit outside
;A North America).
;A Other use without express written consent is forbidden. For other use
;A please contact Fido Software, Box 77731, San Francisco, CA 94107
;A (this carries no weight outside North America either)
;A ;A Fido(r), FidoNet(r), and the dog with diskette are registered marks of Tom
;A Jennings and Fido Software, but outside North America you can do as you
;A please.

    Words of a real mature adult? Someone who makes you proud to be a member of the network? Sure looks like the work of a petty mind to me.
