2) A considerable amount of "script kiddies" originate and grow through
IRC?
3) A wee bit of software piracy occurs?
4) That many organized DoS attacks through PC zombies are initiated
through IRC?
5) The anonymity of the whole thing helps to foster all the illegal
and malicious activity that occurs?
