Narrow minded or not, it's irrelevent.  Sure, the world *might* be a
little teenie bit "safer" without IRC, but then, the same could be said
about half the readership of this list (Hi Paul!): why not "sunset" them
as well?

Your argument boils down to the pre-emptive removal of anything that could
conceivably be used in an illegitimate manner - as we have all seen with
gun control, banning the *tool* is not going to stop the violence.  Might
as well ban knives, chewing gum, and "techno" "music"..

 Civilization is in a tailspin - everything is backwards, everything is
upside down- doctors destroy health, psychiatrists destroy minds, lawyers
destroy justice, the major media destroy information, governments destroy
freedom and religions destroy spirituality - yet it is claimed to be
healthy, just, informed, free and spiritual. We live in a social system
whose community, wealth, love and life is derived from alienation,
poverty, self-hate and medical murder - yet we tell ourselves that it is
biologically and ecologically sustainable.

The Bush plan to screen whole US population for mental illness clearly
indicates that mental illness starts at the top.
