IRC Trolls: the same as trolls here
IRC Agents: new bots skimming the IRC to find you and spam you
We moved to member-only chat for a reason... "members only". While not optimum, the previous versions of chat were open to rampant abuse. And given
the organized abuse headed to IRC, and security problems most newbies discover, I'm not going to sanction an IRC channel for ATS.
We will likely move to a more efficient PHP chat client in the future. I'm looking at clients that members can use in a new forum frameset, so that
you can participate in live chat in the left frame, while still browsing and posting in the forums in the right frame, all in one browser window...
now how cool would that be?
