This is what irritates me the most, is when these kids take over channels they
don't even know the first thing about.

Why should it be such a hassle for a bunch of people to get together and chat
about a common topic?  It's maddening.  I don't know how anyone can run an
Efnet server at all, with all the abuse of their resources that is occuring.

I was never that regular but would pop in from time to time and exchange
little hacks and help answer questions.  Even this weekend a few people came
in asking a couple of questions.

Anyway, I don't want to "take" the channel from anyone, it just seemed to me
like a semi-useful place to have open.  It just made me mad that someone would
close it down for no logical reason.
