i2p makes a lot of sense. Easy to configure, no stupid certs, no DNS and solves
the NAT problem automatically. It's a bit slow, but hey, fidonet has less
traffic nowadays than in the 80s when we had dialup modem connections.

My point (and othernet node) is reachable via Tor onion service and i2p. A
nodelist flag for overlay networks would be useful too (like
IOV:hexhashaddr1.i2p,IOV:hexhashaddr2.onion or
I2P:hexhashaddr1,ION:hexhashaddr2). Who cares if other sysops reject it as long
as some nodes use it.

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
