What would IT be like today without IRC (or the like)? Am I narrow

To be honest: Yes, i think it is quite narrow-mindet to say that. 
Sure, there are some "scriptkiddies" and "crackers" who organize
themselves through internet relay chats.

But if you think you proposal right through to the end, you should also
consider abandoning almost every email-software, instant-messenger and the
like. Good luck with that. If you approach the problem this way, why not
cut through your network cable, which is the best way to protect yourself?

Best wishes,
