ISCABBS (telnet://bbs.isca.uiowa.edu) is, with little doubt, the largest free telnet-able BBS on the planet. Started in the early 1990's by the Iowa Student Computer Association at the University of Iowa, it has grown to over 500,000 accounts total, with roughly 25,000 of them being active users. With such a large membership base, users are going to reach out and meet each other, talk to each other, even build relationships and love lives with each other. So it is no surprise that a "sub-culture" has slowly been built up around the BBS by it's most active users. The following links are to those resources.
