Sounds like a telemarketing scam to me. Be sure you disable
caller-id if you're going to call these guys!

Seriously, this is a free text-based game we're talking about
here, right? If the admins are paranoid/self-inflated enough
to want "voice verification" just to play, imagine what they'll
do to you in the game... *shiver*

Sorry if I'm off base here, but I didn't need voice verification
to get a free unix SHELL account, and that's far more ripe for
abuse than any mud. Good luck guys!

Well, that didn't last very long did it. You should maybe try spending
$10 or $20 and getting a proper mud host.

Makes sense to me since I'm old enough to remember what BBS'ing was
like. MajorMud, is (or atleast was), a BBS-based MUD. In the old days,
many BBS Ops who took their job seriously, would require people to
verify via a phone call to the BBS.

I suppose to people now days that does sound like overkill, but was
common for BBS to require it. I used to drift many of the good ole
BBSes.
