Wow, NICE analogy Jeff!
While IRC is here to stay... The future seems more like servers that're only
hosted through big companies/etc as most datacenters are 'forbidding' use of
IRC(Ports 6660-6669, 7000) on their network.
Just a thought.
That's because the Internet is free and no one can control what survives
it. What survives isn't what is *ethical* but what is *useful*. And IRC is
very useful for some people, so it's here to stay.
The problem is not IRC; the problem is the misuse some people make of it.
cannot make knives dissapear, because they are useful; instead, we must
rid of people that uses knives to kill.
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
