I want to join a channel on irc.gimp.org by whatever means works, using
Tor or not.

Further investigation has gotten me to the point that I should somehow
e-mail the administrator of irc.gimp.org and ask him/her about
alternatives.  However, I have not been able to find his/her e-mail
address.  It is not available on the gimp.org website.  Is there a way
to use whois or some means to get that information?
