I suggest you read the rules first before you start suggesting bad sportmanship
here.

Neurosis could have played the winning e5 for several moves already, yet it
insisted on not doing it.

The rules are very clear in that case. If one engine has less than five minutes
on the clock and the engines are not making any progress one can ask the referee
to have a look. Your engine clearly wasn't making any progress so with only 2
minutes left on the clock I used that right.

Why you started this unfriendly tone, isn't clear to me.
