Not true.  A WAV file and a MPG file are NOT the same, yet they can 
legitimately be assigned Item Type 9 (binary file) under Gopher.  Only with the 
extension will the HUMAN know what kind of binary file (sound or movie) has 
been tagged as Item Type 9.
Gopher is actually an improved version of FTP.  Don't you hate going to an FTP 
site and not knowing what files have been posted, because they were posted 
without extensions??

On Gopher, filetype "extensions" are specified with the item type.
This protocol is not a BBS and never has been.
