irc may be old and clunky but at least it can't get acquired by salesforce

@dthompson don’t say that, watch them buy Freenode and central control of EFNet and basically swallow up all of the mindshare of IRC

@dthompson True...

Also check out #Matrix! Open, decentralized, and has fantastic bridges to #IRC, Discord, Slack, Gitter, etc.

@dthompson only if you restrict it down and have a look at it all day. otherwise IRC is full of spam.
