@sir Make IRC persistent, fix accounts to not send passwords in cleartext, have good apps instead of shitty monospace terminal emulators, make the UI for group settings not be bitmasks set by chat commands, make it safe to transfer files and have hosting for images, files, transcripts, have server-side notifications. Probably more. IRC is a primitive joke. #irc
@mdhughes yeah, I'll just go have a pity party about it with the 80,000 other people being productive and social on Freenode *right now*.
@mdhughes to be honest I guess one advantage of other chat systems is that they act like a magnet to keep morons like you off of IRC
@sir Yes, I can see the kind and welcoming culture of IRC is really going to draw them in. You're a credit to your species, whatever that is.
@sir I criticized an obsolete networking protocol with bad clients. Programs aren't people, IRC user.
