That's not entirely true.  FO-20 and FO-29 work just fine as BBSs when in 
Mode JD, and the remaining digital satellites are even better since they
use the Pacsat Communications Protocol rather than operate as plain BBSs.

The problem with Mir is that is a single user system, and too many
groundstations attempt to connect to it or repeatedly digi LONG
beacons through it while it is in use.
