Re: Why is IRC still around?

This has got to be close to the most stupid thread ever on full-disclosure.

I'm not sure if it gets that because the original email was so
incredibly naieve or just narrow minded or just a result of very
shallow thinking.

It's almost dumb enough that you could suggest its premise to some
American Senator, that's in bed with the RIAA/MPAA, as a way of stopping
those who traffic copyrighted material from communicating and tomorrow
you'd see a bill before congree outlawing IRC.

The only way IRC will ever "go away" is when something better comes
along and even then, maybe not.  There are countless IRC chat networks,
aside from the "big X" and a lot of people are quite happy and content
with the status quo and nothing anyone says or does is going to make
them change.

The person who brought it up should be forced to clean toilets
at McDonalds for a year or something equally disgusting.
