 Replying to [comment:17 phw]:
 > Here's where we're at: All default bridges except noisebridge01 have
 either firewalled their OR port or set `BridgeDistribution none`. Despite

 manages noisebridge01.
 I just sent an email to aestetix, the last person on

 `FB70B257C162BF1038CA669D568D76F5B7F0BABB` also shows up in BridgeDB's
