Irssi (internet relay chat)

In your opinion, why do people even use irc chat? I understand the new people don’t know any better, but as someone with some experience would you recommend it as a service? Your chat(s) aren’t private, at all (not even the so called private message function). I have seen logs of the so called “Anonymous” hack group’s chat, I mean how can they not know all that stuff is stored in plain text in the server?


Legacy system that is hard to remove due to nostalgia. There are better, more secure, more private ways of group chats but nostalgia connoisseurs don’t want to hear about it.

Leave them be. If they make their decisions in life based on emotions then given enough time they will come up on a problem that they can’t solve and blame the world for it.


I like this! And fully agree.
