By the way, why not?
As far as I know, the permission of the moderator was obtained before this echo conference was connected to Telegram.
Strictly speaking, this is not exactly a gate in Telegram. It looks more like a BBS with access via Telegram.
The term "gate" seems to paint some preconceived ideas. For instance, the term "gated to usenet" emits a notion of uncontrolled public distribution and a pool for spam. "Gate" can have a negative connotation.
Maybe it would be worth finding another term for the Fido<->TgM magic that you created. It is technically just a translation from your system (like a fido boss node or host) to access Telegram and accommodate smartphones and tablets much like what HotdogEd and Aftershock accomplish.
Instead of "--- tg2fido gate v0.6.1", how about "--- tgm/fido portal vn.n.n" as a way to deprogram the tainted mind?
I think BBS comes closest.
Right. You are leveraging the free and open-source Telegram API and its 24/7 servers to provide another "interface" for users to reach *your* BBS.
This is exactly what I meant. Free Telegram resources are used to access Fido.
The only bad thing is that proprietary resources are used to store messages. However, the vast majority of echo conferencing has been indexed and cached by Google, I think this is not a big problem at all.

Many fido echos have been available to read by the anonymous public
for many years on Synchronet sites such as https://sestar.synchro.net/msgs/index.ssjs and https://freeway.apana.org.au/msgs/index.ssjs and even archivers such
The messages at all of those are most certainly passed through the
grips of Google.
