every time someone goes "irc was so good it's sad to see it get replaced" i laugh into madness a little

do i really have to remind you how shitty and dangerously unusable it is. authoritative point i use it everyday

the primary way to make it bearable is to run an irc client on a server and that should give you a little hint that something is fucked up

when you leave denial that's a monthly fee, a machine to maintain, and sysadmin skills required just to join a chatroom in decent conditions

@CobaltVelvet You have that issue with any chat system.
It's just that most of the time, you run a "lightweight client" (to use bitcoin terminology) to connect to a "heavy client" hosted by someone else for "free".
There are ways to do that for IRC too, eg. IRCCloud, The Lounge, or Quassel.
