A tale of two IRC networks:
#Freenode: kicked us out of our channels, harassed one of our ops on their home page, made supposedly "draft" policy changes to permit hate speech
#LiberaChat: participated in *our* forum to address questions about governance and non-profit structure and asked for feedback on improvements: <https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikimedia_Forum&type=revision&diff=21500928&oldid=21500771>
@legoktm I've been notified today, that while the draft change has been rolled back, it has been added again in a newer PR: https://github.com/freenode/web-7.0/pull/516/files/1b438dbf720331eddd68bb573c773d1942f016ac#diff-0e382b024f696a3b7a0ff3bce24ae3166cc6f383d059c7cc61e0a3ccdeed522c
@legoktm That whole thread is hilarious with the amount of noise for matrix.org and "run our own IRC network" like oh my god they have no idea how running a network of even 100 people on one server is a massive time sink.
