I just recently got into using irc. I'm just a beginner and mostly hang out in #defocus. I tried joining channel #macresource but nobody's home. Maybe we should start using irc to chat.

I had to look up IRC:

[en.wikipedia.org]

What's the point? We 'chat' here.

IRC was a great chat technology back in the day, but once the power of anonymity took hold it became the dark underbelly of the internet. A home for 35-year-old boys to be 12-year-old girls while trading images that no website would ever post...

Wow, I didn't anticipate such a negative response. I've been using IRC for a couple of weeks now and I've been chatting on the #defocus channel which is a kind of random topic channel. Most of the conversation is about programming which isn't a surprise as it's kind of a hangout for techies. Other topics are discussed though. So far I haven't seen any pornography as Ombligo suggested, nor have I seen anyone pretending to be a girl. The worst thing I have seen is someone giving bad dating advice to some young person and I just blocked that person out so I wouldn't have to read it.

I don't care if people don't want to chat on IRC but I don't think it deserves such a negative response. Chatting is fun, it's more interactive than posting here, and it's something to do when you can't sleep at night.

And that is exactly why I won't let my GF's teenage boys use my WiFi connection. NO WAY am I going to take the fall if they are sending or receiving pics of nekkid teenagers.

When we were kids, it was normal. Now its a felony.

we're not negative about you. IRC has just become one of the nasty neighborhoods of the interwebs, and most of us avoid it for that reason. We're happy you've found a place to communicate. Just don't give out your name and address to those Russian Bride places big grin smiley

YOU HAVE GOT YOUR FSCKING NERVE, BUDDY!


Er… I mean, um… Wow! You really hit the nail on the head with that one! Just like UseNet too! (Hah hah! )



for the record… I’ve never even owned an app for either. AOL was all the chat I could handle back in 1990.

I'm sorry, I completely disagree. There's plenty of viable channels on IRC used by millions of people.

Yah, I think someone would have to go looking for porn or worse using irc. I've been in several channels and it's just people talking about normal things. In fact it is usually the same people each night.

Just spent the evening in #reddit-christianity and everyone was very nice and there was no porn. Maybe it has something to do with what channels a person seeks out...

Anyone can go to the local Catholic Church and bring the latest Topp’s Cards “2012 AlterBoy Set" - and be trading all night! No computer anonymity needed! Just check out the Boston Personal Ads - and search the word “Cardinal.”

I’ll bet the other brand have them too! With Roofie Flavored Bubble Gum!
