I know this topic is old, and I just want to add something related to the trolls on IRC. I have a IRC on freenode for a few years now, and I can understand the trolls on there. I had many problems with irc freenode, and it came down to the irc staff on freenode to k-lined a few users and they been also ddosing freenode as I notice a lot of net splits lately and last year.
The New chat system on cupoflinux, is a very good idea, as last night talking in there was a very neat, calm clean and all about computer talk, and I like this as it is a group with mature people, that like to talk about what is the main idea on this Community and website, and that is Open Source Systems.
To me I like it a lot I think it's a good move on Spatry, as I know how it is with the madness of trolls online in general.
Nice that you are trying your bestest to make a nice and friendly chat. That is why I always respected you for that Spat.
Umm if this is to late to post something on here just remove it, and tell me if this is not allowed to reply to as i'm not so sure. I don't want to break any rules.
