Regarding the aroma of rodent, see these Message-ID references:

This user, Miner, went through the same rigamarole over on the rocksolid
peering group. He said his email to RetroGuy was not getting through
then he insisted that admin join him in a Tox chat. He became petulant
about the need for a Tox conference and gave an ultimatum about shutting
down his peer instead of working out a solution.

Neither the Tox protocol nor any of the available clients have been
security vetted. A socat session over Tor would likely be more trustworthy.

Why is Miner attempting to get multiple NNTP admins to join him in a Tox
chat when the newsgroups are just fine for this use case?

Why is he trying to create a sense of urgency?
